In the Day to Day Struggle …

 

Sacred Heart Cross

Wrought-iron Sacred Heart cross in southern France.

 

Burst from my heart …

In the day to day struggle to be moral, nothing in all my forty seven years has proved to be more efficacious than the (frequent) reception of the Sacraments.

In the day to day need to bear suffering (and not to deaden it), nothing in all my 47 years has proved to be more helpful or more consoling than the (frequent) reception of the Sacraments.

In the day to day call to open my heart, nothing in all my 47 years has proved to be more piercing than the (frequent) reception of the Sacraments.

(And nothing but nothing in either my cultural or parental upbringing ever provided me the slightest whisper of this astonishing reality).

    The Gentle Traditionalist

     

    ”Roger Buck ... in the spirit of Chesterton and Belloc ... takes on everything—from the reforms of Vatican II to the New Age ... a wonderful book.”— MICHAEL MARTIN

    ”A tale of whimsical fantasy, melancholy realism, and supernatural joy ... Buck’s deftly-reasoned post-modern apologetic for full-blooded Catholicism—a Syllabus of Errors in narrative form, a rousing hymn to ‘meaning, grace, beauty, life’.” — PETER KWASNIEWSKI

    "As brilliant a guide for the perplexed as this age is capable of producing” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    Cor Jesu Sacratissimum

    ”Buck goes to the heart of the problem paralyzing our broken-hearted world ... moving beyond the spirit of the age to the Spirit who moves all ages.” — JOSEPH PEARCE

    ”In this elegant feast of a book, Roger Buck ... expertly skewers the modern world ... without a drop of malice in his compassionate soul ... to reveal the bright, shining love and truth at the center of the universe—symbolised by the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and incarnate in the Catholic Church.” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”A great service to the Church ... Buck shows that the New Age is an attempt, however flawed, to escape the materialism of modernity, and that it is Catholicism in its traditional forms that can best reveal the immense reality of the suffering and love for all mankind of Christ’s Sacred Heart.”— JOSEPH SHAW
