The Death Cult Progeny of the Enlightenment III

  At the end of preceding segment, I turned to the subject of hope. For I share a world with many who are losing hope as to the sustainability of our present civilisation. And as I have written earlier in this little series, I myself have little hope in the prospects of creating an ultimately […]

Thank you, Friend(s) Unknown (You know who you are)

This site is being born in […]

Everybody´s Fine?

Returning from Holy Mass recently one morning, I felt very sad. I found myself sitting opposite a large poster advert for a film called Everybody´s Fine. The poster, like most forms of advertising, is designed to draw people in and it is successful. I found it difficult not to look at it – it took […]

The Enlightenment: Stripped and Naked We Die

Stripped and naked, we die. Were you to ask me, dear Reader, for a five word précis of my last entry at this weblog, I doubt I could do much better than that. For the point of that entry was that the fruits of the Enlightenment had left us stripped, stripped of the very things […]

Every Secret Misery and Silent Agony

    Bursting in me: I have spoken of Paray-le-Monial in France, where His Most Sacred Heart once was seen, blazing like the sun. Paray-le-Monial, where lived St Margaret Mary … And I have mentioned, how while bearing heavy suffering, I felt held and bathed in the love of that Most Sacred Heart, which still […]

The Death Cult Progeny of the Enlightenment

Is the only means for saving human civilisation through the restoration of the lost authority of the Church? Is the only means of restoring the lost authority of the Church through the undoing of so, so much that happened in the wake of Vatican II? Whatever the merit of these questions and however bizarre they […]

We All Suffer because We are Fallen … And Yet There is Hope

My little dog suffers, part of fallen Creation. The woman upstairs suffers because she is fallen. The man in the street suffers because he is fallen. We all suffer because we are fallen. My husband suffers because his mother screamed at him. She suffered because her father beat her mother. I suffer because my mother […]

  • 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
