Catholic Counter Revolution, the Land and the Enlightenment Myth of Progress

Pauls Kingsnorth does not belong to the Catholic Counter Revolution – and yet his writings about land and the Enlightenment myth of progress will speak to Counter Revolutionaries everywhere.

Retraction and Apology – and Further Consideration on the Hope for the World

I must make an apology. I have inadvertently, if slightly, misquoted the Pope. In reference to climate change, I wrote that the Holy Father had said “[The Church] not only has a major responsibility; she is, I would say, the only hope.” In fact another word appears in the Pope’s thoughts. It is the word […]

Christmas and the Fate of the Earth

January 2011 Amendment: The following entry was originally written under a slight misapprehension as to something the Holy Father had said. In a British print journal, I had read the Pope say that in terms of the global climate crisis: The Church is the only hope. The quote had been taken from Light of the […]

The Pope on Ecological “Catastrophe … The Church is often the Only Hope”

January 2011 Amendment: The following entry was originally written under a slight misapprehension as to the Holy Father’s words. In a British print journal, I had read the Pope say that in terms of the global climate crisis: The Church is the only hope. The quote had been taken from Light of the World – […]

The Death Cult Progeny of the Enlightenment

Is the only means for saving human civilisation through the restoration of the lost authority of the Church? Is the only means of restoring the lost authority of the Church through the undoing of so, so much that happened in the wake of Vatican II? Whatever the merit of these questions and however bizarre they […]

Unfinished Personal/Global Musings IV (Valentin Tomberg on False Hierarchy)

I no longer recall my exact words of course. But the essence of the conversation remains engraved on my mind. It was a warm, sunny Spring day in France. People in shirt sleeves were frolicking in the shine. But it was too warm, too pleasant. It was too early in the Spring. My beloved turned […]

Unfinished Personal/Global Musings III (Valentin Tomberg on Law and the Goddess Economy)

What kind of civilisation is it, that could result in the most unimaginable scale of loss as that suggested by Global Warming? Is it arguably not a civilisation which has placed certain goods – or gods – above all else? For example, the exterior good of scientific progress over and above the interior good of […]

Unfinished Personal/Global Musings II (Valentin Tomberg on Disintegration – Death)

My last web entry tried to introduce the personal context within which I try to grapple with Global Warming. It is the context, as I said, of a practising Catholic aspiring to deep, regular Sacramental Communion. It is also that of ongoing study of Catholic Tradition and the history of the transition from a Western […]

Unfinished Personal/Global Musings Part I (Introduction)

Authority … one has authority or competence to speak about something the more consciously and fully one has experienced it. In writing of things New Age for example, I feel a certain degree of confidence, given that I have had long, intimate involvement with this phenomena. I completely identified with the New Age movement for […]

Global Warming and Catholic Response

In 1891, Pope Leo XIII brought forth the encyclical Rerum Novarum. It was a milestone in the Catholic Tradition, inaugurating a new era of Papal Social Encyclicals responding to the social injustice of the modern world. The latest being the magisterial Caritas in Veritate of His Holiness Benedict XVI. In Rerum Novarum Leo XIII challenged […]

    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
