O Catholic Ireland! O Catholic France!

 

altar in Catholic Ireland

Typically beautiful Irish altar. Not unlike untold thousands of others throughout every village and town in Catholic Ireland …

Just a small burst from my heart …

I thought my book Cor Jesu Sacratissimum was basically finished long ago.

But how much checking, re-checking, thinking, re-thinking still seems necessary.

webbBefore one sends out the major statement of one’s life, significant moral enquiry is obviously needed too.

I hope it will not be too much longer.

In all of this, I have penned a dedication for the book.

I am not sure whether these will be the final words – but I share them with you as an impromptu burst.

For brief as they are, truly these words say much indeed about the entire inspiration for the book as well as for this website:

To the Soul of Catholic France, which was subjected to utter mutilation in the past

And to the Soul of Catholic Ireland, which is being mutilated in similar fashion today,

This book is dedicated.

For to the Souls of these great Catholic cultures,

I owe more than I can possibly tell you,

dear Reader.

If any readers should desire amplification of this brevity, we have archives of posts on Catholic Ireland here as well as Catholic France here

    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

     

    cor-jesu-roger-buck

    ”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
