Video: A Little Meditation on the Sacred Heart of Jesus


O Sacred Heart of Jesus …

We have, at last, posted another video – which is much shorter than most and definitely different. But rather than say much more here, I will let it speak for itself.

The only thing I will mention now is that both new posts and videos are likely to remain rather slow in coming for a while yet. My personal life has been quite intense of late and I am also dreadfully behind on my correspondence.

For all that, I remain profoundly grateful for all the support this new video channel has received, even while I have not felt able to bring out the videos regularly.

I am NOT giving up though. Sooner or later, there will be more videos. Many more.

I am very committed to this channel and your continued support in the form of likes, subscriptions, shares, as well as prayers, truly helps. Thank you, friends, known and unknown.





The book I quote in the video is my most recent: Cor Jesu Sacratissimum: From Secularism and the New Age to Christendom Renewed, which you can find at your nearest Amazon by clicking on the ad below:


Cor Jesu Sacratissimum is Latin, of course, for “most Sacred Heart of Jesus” and the unusual passage I cite in the video – in somewhat shortened form –  is the book’s prologue.

It is also my own poor attempt to contemplate the immensity of suffering the Sacred Heart of Jesus sees and the immensity of love He bears for each and every one of us. Yes, however dire our circumstances, however dark our hearts, the Heart of Jesus sees and loves us … (At the same time, I did not want to forget human beauty, as well as suffering. But that beauty we owe to HIM.)

If anyone would like to see the complete unedited text of this meditation on the Sacred Heart, you can find it here.

“My own poor attempt,” I wrote above. What I attempt is impossible, of course. Still the Christian ever aspires to Imitatio Christi – even while it remains utterly impossible to ever fully imitate the one of us who: “looks on at all this, with a Sacred Heart of Infinite Burning Charity and feeling every individual gesture, tear, and tragedy … calls each of us to come be warmed at His Blazing Hearth of Love and join Him in His Work.”

  • 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
