Pentecost – and a Continued Call to Counter Revolution



Detail from Lourdes mosaic of Pentecost

Well, today, dear Readers, is Pentecost and I wish each of you the joy and inspiration of the Holy Spirit on this blessed Feast.

But this little post is really to announce that the second of my videos is now up on my new Youtube channel dedicated to Counter-Revolution.

In this video, I am touching on – at least touching on – a little bit of everything: Catholic France, the Latin Mass, Hilaire Belloc, G.K. Chesterton, the tunnel-visioned media, Capitalism, Distributism, the website Fish Eaters, pornography and social decay, the noble quest for sexual chastity, abortion, Noam Chomsky, Bernie Sanders and the fate of the West.

Finally, I also want to thank so many of you for the kind, kind responses you have given me so far, in all kinds of places, including Facebook, the aforementioned Fish Eaters site and the Irish Conservatives Forum I am also now participating in.

Truly, I am more comfortable with writing rather than public speaking and your warmth is most sustaining in whatfor me is a very novel – not to say nervous! – endeavour.

I am also grateful to many of you who have shared this video on Facebook and other places. Please can you keep this up and like and subscribe to the channel?

(I admit to cringing a little writing the above! I see my work as very much about challenging the crass, commercialised culture of our age – and yet I appear to pander to it! Still, it does seem necessary to ask. YouTube’s soulless giant supercomputers will work to promote my new videos the more they are liked and subscribed to. And I do want to promote them – so that they are at least visible to people. So, I will also point out there are helpful buttons at the bottom of this post for sharing this on Facebook and other social media platforms. )

And with that expression of gratitude and request for continued support, I turn you over to, er … myself:



Postscript: If you want to know more about the new channel, you can see my last post here, wherein I also explain that in this video series, I will be focussing on such subjects as:

  • The Crisis in the Liturgy and the Latin Mass
  • Why Secularism gets away with murder (as the Gentle Traditionalist would say)
  • The Veiled Destructiveness of the New Age Movement
  • Great Catholic thinkers including Hilaire Belloc, G.K. Chesterton and Valentin Tomberg
  • Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
  • Catholic Ireland
  • Catholic France
  • Christendom – and what must be done to renew it.

  • 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
