The (Catholic) Tide is Turning …

We briefly interrupt our series on the New Age to note this possibly landmark day. It is the fourth anniversary of the implementation of Summorum Pontificum and if rumours reported in the French press (Le Figaro) are to be believed, a day of potential earthquake (English translation here). If such reports have truth, they suggest […]

Valentin Tomberg, Catholic Tradition and the Counter-Revolution (Part IV)

We have been speaking – just a little – about what Valentin Tomberg meant by Hermeticism. And it was suggested that Valentin Tomberg believed it was necessary that Hermeticism become Christian, baptised as it were. It was also suggested that perhaps he thought that nothing less was necessary for the salvation of world civilisation. For […]

Valentin Tomberg, Catholic Tradition and the Counter-Revolution (Part III)

We have said that this weblog series will be devoted to the corpus of Catholic works by Valentin Tomberg, following his startling conversion in the early 1940’s. The works in mind here fall into two distinct categories and it is well to distinguish these. The first part of the corpus was written in the years […]

Valentin Tomberg, Catholic Tradition and the Counter-Revolution

This webproject has numerous sources of inspiration. Chief among these of course, is the Sacramental Meeting with Jesus Christ, which has afforded untold inspiration to Kim and myself since the joy and miracle of our conversion. But within that untold vastness, there is more, of course. There are the life-changing experiences of Catholic France – […]

    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
