The Destruction of the Twelve Days of Christmas

      Roger and I returned to Ireland in April. Our house is opposite the village chapel, which sounds the Angelus at twelve noon and six o’clock in the evening. After living in the UK, where the Angelus is rarely heard, this was so exciting for me. I had the imagination that we were […]

World Materialism and the Feast of Christ the King

The origins of the Feast of Christ the King lies in awakeness to world materialism. A strange testimony from Rudolf Steiner illumines these matters.

On the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

  Thy Nativity, O Virgin Mother of God, was the herald of joy to the whole world; since from thee arose the Sun of Justice, Christ our God, who, destroying the curse, bestowed the blessing, and confounding death, rewarded us with life everlasting. (Antiphon at the Magnificat).       Today, angels bow down, Heavenly Hosts […]

On Corpus Christi and Refuting New Age Dogma

    Today it is Corpus Christi. And recently we observed at this weblog: “New Age culture moves in lockstep with the modern, liberal culture. And like that culture, it has little time for Christian understandings of the Fall, evil and sin. It tends very much to share the secular supposition of ‘Original Innocence’. Like the […]

In the Octave of Pentecost

    From Ascension Thursday until Pentecost Sunday, the Apostles were gathered together in the Cenacle. Here they prayed over the nine days between the two great Feasts, giving rise to the first Novena. It was after this time of prayer that this miraculous event occurred. The Holy Spirit proceeded from the Father and the […]

    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

    ”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
