Video: Through the Embers of Christendom

If anyone is following this long-neglected website, now obviously breaking down, with (perhaps sinfully) long-neglected comments, they may wonder what is going on.

Part of the answer to that question is that, till lately, I have been not only far away from this website, but away from home and away from the internet almost completely. I needed to deconnect …

In the midst of all this, however, I have now produced a video about these changes, these travels abroad, through Ireland, France, Belgium, Holland, England and Embers of Christendom. Special attention is given to my return to Pontmain.

It is, I think, one of the most important on my YouTube Channel. Certainly, it is a favourite.

Here it is, without further ado:


Since first posting this video, my new book The Gentle Traditionalist Returns has been published!

Rather than say much more myself here, however, I simply take this opportunity to post a few reviews (or blurbs, really) regarding The Gentle Traditionalist Returns.

“Roger Buck’s character, the ‘Gentle Traditionalist,’ returns with a vengeance in this stand-alone sequel. Set against the backdrop of modern Ireland’s headlong flight from sanity, this book skewers the modern malaise with the kind of sanity we have come to expect from this author.”–CHARLES A. COULOMBE , author of Puritan’s Empire: A Catholic Perspective on American History

”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, author of Reclaiming Our Roman Catholic Birthright.

”A brilliant diagnosis of the spiritual malaise of modern society, written with gentleness, generosity, humour, pathos … and, above all else, love”— MAOLSHEACHLANN Ó CEALLAIGH , author of Inspiration From the Saints

“Those who were charmed by Roger Buck’s previous books–well, prepare to be charmed again, but also warned and given plenty of food for thought. This book strikes a more somber note, but one tuned to the timbre of our times. Read it and tune in.”– THOMAS STORCK , author of From Christendom to Americanism

The Gentle Traditionalist Returns is a welcome visit from an old friend. Roger Buck’s delightful narrative–as the title assures us–gently leads the reader into a new perspective on the Catholic Mystery. An absolutely refreshing read!”–MICHAEL MARTIN, author of Transfiguration: Notes Toward a Radical Catholic Reimagination of Everything

“Once again, Roger Buck has shown himself to be a prophet in the tradition of Ezekiel; he is the watchman on the wall. Buck’s experience as a convert from New Age activism has uniquely fitted him for this vocation.”–GERARD O’SHEA , author of Educating in Christ

    Need to live outside the Anglosphere in cultural and spiritual terms: absolutely necessary.

    ‘This has more to do with the Anglo-Saxon world than with true Irishness’

    Amen, and again I say amen.

    Yes, the Irish have finally bought into the hyper-individualism of the Anglo-Saxon Protestant world. And we see the results: legalized abortion and gay marriage.

    May Ireland be filled with the work of the Institute of Christ the King.
