The Gentle Traditionalist: A Catholic Fairy Tale from Ireland by Roger Buck from Angelico Press

 

In my last post, I mentioned a need to take some TIME OUT for prayer this Christmastide and also for addressing some pressing personal difficulties.

Thus, this website is being more or less ‘shut down’ for the next twelve sacred days.

However, before doing that, I thought I would leave readers with a little ‘Christmas reading’ regarding my new book The Gentle Traditionalist.

Possibly, you may find this list handy, if you are considering buying the book, but are still making your mind up.

Herewith, then, some key posts recently …

Also these extracts and a few other posts about the book can be found in this archive of posts here: corjesusacratissimum.org/tag/the-gentle-traditionalist

And finally, I want to point to one more recent post which does NOT feature an extract. I was, however, unusually happy with it.

Ireland and the Embers of Christendom

I commend this post particularly to all those who care about the SOUL of IRELAND and the unique light she has shone in the Anglosphere … http://corjesusacratissimum.org/2015/12/ireland-embers-of-christendom/

Finally, I  thank all those again who Facebooked and tweeted these posts. I am very, very grateful for all your support for getting word of this book out.

And with that, I stop at last and wish you and yours a most blessed Christmas.

    This book, The Gentle Traditionalist, was brilliant! It captures the core issues around the Church and the World today, and puts them in the stream of history, offer context for tremendous understanding about how we got where we are, where we actually are, and where we need to go. Thank you, Roger! Thank you, Kim!

      Kelly, thank you, most warmly …

      Among other things, I am most grateful for your comment re history. For this is a grave world problem: Our media dominated-cinilisation telescopes ‘history’ down to what happened very recently – usually, as my book suggests, what happened since the 1960s.

      It is necessary to create an antidote for this. To let people really know, for example, that prior to the 60s people really did feel very differently about countless things, and not simply sex, pornography etc.

      Thus, I am very glad if you feel my book contributes in any way to that needed cultural antidote. And besides that it is just very good to have your voice here!

    My dear wife Patsy has just ordered, The Gentle Traditionalist from Amazon and we are both looking forward to the read. Joseph Shaw is a fellow parishioner at Holy Trinity, Hethe and by way of his blog decided it must be priority read. The only Irish blog we look at is Vultis Christi . Silvestream is a glimmer of light in the general gloom in Ireland. Pasty left a ‘Catholic’ Ireland 53 years ago – we were married in Dublin, a solemn nuptial Mass. We returned to the Mass of Ages in the late 90’s. I look forward to your blogging and keeping in touch In Domino, Keith and Pasty Crocker

    rinity, Hethe and
