A Tridentine Preview

A lot of work is presently going into a new aspect of this website, which I hope will soon debut under the name of Tridentine Archive. The Archive among other things, will be representing to the twenty-first century certain older out-of-copyright texts, which deal not only with the Sacred Heart, but also the entire Tridentine […]

The Death Cult Progeny of the Enlightenment III

  At the end of preceding segment, I turned to the subject of hope. For I share a world with many who are losing hope as to the sustainability of our present civilisation. And as I have written earlier in this little series, I myself have little hope in the prospects of creating an ultimately […]

The Enlightenment: Stripped and Naked We Die

Stripped and naked, we die. Were you to ask me, dear Reader, for a five word précis of my last entry at this weblog, I doubt I could do much better than that. For the point of that entry was that the fruits of the Enlightenment had left us stripped, stripped of the very things […]

The Lost Piety of Catholic France – Paray-le-Monial and more …

  For years, I have been grieving the Lost Piety of Catholic France. But really, the title of this entry is euphemistic. Because when one knows the history of post-revolution Catholic France and when one has faith, it is hard to avoid stronger titles, such as the Destroyed or Murdered Piety of Catholic France. Still, […]

Catholic Ireland, O Catholic Ireland!

Catholic Ireland changed my life forever. Catholic Ireland gave me what I never could see all those years in secular America and England.

Lead Us Not into Media Temptation …

Some time ago, I was at the St.Pius X Priory in Caussade, France, when a Franciscan brother celebrated Mass. In his homily, he spoke of the importance of prayer in times of temptation. Of how we, as children of God, become like babies in such times, and as such, need to cry to our parent […]

Materialism, Truth and the Catholic Mystery

Recently here, I reported how moved I once was by the words of Latin Mass priest in Ireland who regretted a contemporary tendency in the Church to de-emphasise the need for the Sacrament of Confession. His point was that people who availed themselves less often of this Sacrament, availed themselves less of the “Sanctifying Grace” […]

What Happens?

What happens? When life’s most profound and important matters … matters which all people variously name as beauty, morality, love, mystery and the Sacred … Are no longer treated as such by the culture around us? Because they cannot be empirically proven and established as having anything beyond relative, subjective or private value? What happens […]

    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
