Cor Jesu, Láncea Perforátum

Welcome to my weblog and thank you for coming.

There are many themes and aspects to the faith, I want to explore here, centred around the mysteries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Our Lady and Her Rosary, Holy Mass, Holy Mother Church and far more.

First of all, I will present something I wrote about the particular line from the litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus:

Cor Jesu, láncea perforátum: Heart of Jesus, pierced with a lance….

Many of the images of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, depict His fifth wound pierced by the lance.

This wound is often seen to be bleeding drops of blood. I see these drops of blood, like tears falling from His Heart.

This wound to His Most Sacred Heart, speaks of that which occurred on the cross. It speaks not only of the piercing of the lance. It also speaks of His total sacrifice at Calvary.

That through the agony and pain Jesus suffered on the cross,

His love, forgiveness and mercy flowed.

That He suffered this agony and pain for us,

Because He felt so deeply for our suffering.

That Our Lord Jesus Christ felt the tragedy of the world so profoundly,

That through the will of the Father,

He gave us Himself.

He gave us His Body,

He gave us His Blood,

He gave us His mercy,

He gave us His Love.

And through all of these, He gave us True Life, through the sacrifice of His own.

And every day He gives us these most precious gifts through the sacrifice of the Mass.

And every day His Sacred Heart bleeds tears of blood for the tragedy we continue to live in.

His Most Sacred Heart cries, as we continue to turn away from Him towards a world of destruction.

These things come to me, as I ponder the fifth wound, that to the Heart of Jesus with a lance.

  • The Gentle Traditionalist Returns!

    New Book from Angelico Press!

    "The Gentle Traditionalist returns with a vengeance in this stand-alone sequel ... this book skewers the modern malaise with the kind of sanity we have come to expect from this author” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”Buck’s latest foray is a grand success ... The story features the same singular combination of whimsy and surprise, keen social commentary, and deft argumentation as the first [book]. The Gentle Traditionalist Returns appeals to what is best and deepest in us, so that we will reengage with that which ultimately matters while there is yet time.” — PETER KWASNIEWSKI

    ”A brilliant diagnosis of the spiritual malaise of modern society, written with gentleness, generosity, humour, pathos ... and, above all else, love”— MAOLSHEACHLANN Ó CEALLAIGH

    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



    ”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
