On the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart

    Recently, Alisa left a comment, saying that she is going to have the Enthronment of the Sacred Heart in her home. I have to say, I’m so thrilled. It is such a wonderful thing to make the Sacred Heart head of the household. So, what is the Enthronment? Simply put, it is a […]

Adoration of the Precious Blood

    When I gaze upon this image, I see so much. Hidden behind the image, I see our Lord Jesus Christ upon the Cross, arms stretched wide, presenting us His Heart, loving. Loving, forgiving, in the midst of His agony. His heart, like the sun, beaming, warming, as Its rays touch each and every […]

On J.R.R. Tolkien and the Magic of Frequent Communion

    One of the most gratifying things about this website lies in some of the comments I receive. After my last post here about Holy Communion, where I spoke of frequent Communion, I was very moved indeed to receive the following from Matthew: I know exactly what you mean Roger. After Mass I have […]

The Church as Living Organism, the Church as Mystery …

    Recently I stammered here a little about the nature of the Church as a Living Organism. And I tried to draw a distinction between the Protestant emphasis on sermons and the Miracle of the Seven Sacraments: The Protestant sermon imparts beliefs. It teaches. Often very good and beautiful things. But the Organism does something else. […]

    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
