Welcome Home – From the New Age to Catholicism

As Roger has mentioned in his weblog, we have been staying with family in southern Spain. Although there is a strong Catholic community here amongst the native Spanish people, the ex-patriate Brits, of whom there are many, tend to be drawn to the New Age. Our family is involved in this New Age way. So […]

One of Us

    Below is an extract from my book in preparation: Cor Jesu Sacratissimum.

One of […]

Where Have I Come From? A Touch of Biography …

The next few entries will focus on my conversion to Catholicism. This will be expressed very much through my experiences of the Church as ‘homecoming’. A theme that lives with me daily. But first of all, here is a touch of biography to give a small glimpse at my life before I came to the […]

A Foretaste of Things to Come …

Just a little placeholder and foretaste of things to come at this website. I am struggling a bit with this weblog. It seems to me it needs to be birthed from a place of real contemplation – and not say, descend into ranting about the New Age movement. From this place of contemplation, it seems I need […]

New Age Values

Today, I want to continue with the question of what kind of values tend to flow from the New Age Religion and Catholicism. Now I am posting under pressure today, dear Reader. And rather than write a new entry, I thought I would mainly share material taken from the first rough draft of the book […]

The “Benevolent” Burial of Christianity

Gratitude to Bellator Dei for graphic. This weblog received a very interesting comment to the last entry, from my “known friend”, John. My friend’s response, I thought, raised a number of important issues and questions – both explicitly and implicitly. I have wondered if John is implicitly asking something, when he observes that New Age […]

  • 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
