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

Just a little whisper now …

We have links to Amazon with a request to help this work.

Until lately, these were hardly used, but just recently someone or some ones, presumably in America, started using them.

Whoever you are Unknown Friend(s), I want to say: we are grateful.

This site is being born in real difficulty, which by so-called first world standards is fairly extreme. I am very aware that by non-first world standards – that is the vast majority of the world! – they are not so extreme.

Allusions to this situation have occasionally been made. But I am never sure how much to say publicly. I also really do not know the ethics in publicly asking for support. And so I ponder …

In the meantime whilst I ponder, I will just say this. This unknown support meant a lot to Kim and me. To the one or ones who ordered, it might not have seemed so much. But it was to us. I do not know who you are, but if you are reading this, please know our real gratitude goes out to you.

I will also take this opportunity to publicly very warmly thank the dear known friend who designed and hosts this site and did everything to make it possible.

    Thank you so much Philip. This kind, warm encouragement means a lot to us. For this internet writing is a somewhat lonely business. Through the wonders of internet technology, Kim and I can see a fair number of people following the site, but whose identities and responses we have not the least idea! They may be following it with the appreciation you have indicated, or at the other extreme with a horrid fascination. Or indeed a mixture of both! And we do appreciate the efforts of all of you who have given us feedback, either here at the site or via private email.

  • 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

     

    cor-jesu-roger-buck

    ”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
