Video: The Gentle Traditionalist: the Opening (+ Personal Notes)

As we recently “explained” here, both this website and my private life have been beset with problems, technical and personal.

Much-needed repairs to this website mean there will be very little in terms of new posts for a while yet. But I have a new video here, which, as explained below, comes in TWO distinctly different parts.

The first part is the opening chapter of my book The Gentle Traditionalist (first 29 minutes).

After that a VERY DIFFERENT section of rather more personal commentary follows.

I not only say a little of myself – where I am in this mad new world of 2020 – but I also offer some reflections on: the Catholic Mystery, the dehumanisation of our corporate, computerised  society, as well as the hope of Saints and Angels interceding for us.

Other themes in the video include Catholic Ireland and France, the Latin Mass, Catholic conversion, the New Age Movement and the love of Christ and Our Lady.

The second part also features a lot of gorgeous medieval Gothic imagery to overlay my voice . . .

    Dear Roger Buck,
    I hope all is well; may Our Lord always be with you in these times of trial, and may you have the peace of God.
    I am a Christian in Sweden who has appreciated your blog after I found it some time ago. My family lived briefly in Ireland a decade ago and we do love that magical island.
    I would like to write you an email, but found no contact information on your blog. Maybe you can reply to this comment by sending me an email, so I get your address?
    Yours sincerely, Jonathan

  • 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
