New Video: Through the Embers of Christendom

If anyone is following this long-neglected website, now obviously breaking down, with (perhaps sinfully) long-neglected comments, they may wonder what is going on.

Holy Mass – Reverent or Irreverent?

    Early one Sunday evening, I went to Holy Mass. It was exquisite. The priest wore deep rich purple vestments, for it was Septuagisima Sunday. His chasuble was wholly visible, as he stood facing the tabernacle with the congregation. I was in the choir and the Gregorian chant we sang was sublime. The incense was heavenly and the priest’s […]

Alter Christus – The Preciousness of the Priesthood

    ‘After having instituted the Holy Eucharist, He [Jesus Christ] became one with His Church, with His members’ (Dom Marmion in Union with God). ‘When you ask a child what the figure of the priest evokes from him, he will answer “Jesus” or “the Mass”. Some will say … that the children have gone straight to 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
