Probably My Best Video Yet …

As the title suggests, I am more happy with this video than any other so far (although Episode 16 here is a close runner-up and very key to to my work). Unlike the “epic” Episode 16, however, this video has the added advantage of being much shorter and more succinct. For these reasons, I would […]

An Unusual Catholic-New Age Dialogue (Long Years after Leaving Findhorn)

Twenty five years ago, I was an enthusiastic young member of the Findhorn Community in Northern Scotland. Findhorn: it remains today one of the major world centres of the New Age movement, or as a Vatican document puts it: ‘The two centres which were the initial power-houses of the New Age, and to a certain […]

Catholicism: Living Mystery or Human Label?

  In dialoguing with non-Catholics in secular society, the greatest problem will frequently be complete lack of understanding. This can easily arise because – often without realising it – non-Catholics and Catholics have completely different understandings of what the Church is. For within the secular world, the idea has become prevalent that Catholicism amounts to […]

    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
