New Video: With Dr Joseph Shaw on the New Age and Modern Culture

As I recently “explained” here, both this website and my private life have been beset with problems and pressures. 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:


To explain somewhat . . .

I was recently honoured to be interviewed by Professor Joseph Shaw of Oxford University, Lifesite News commentator and Chairman of the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales.

In a hyper-stimulated world going slowly mad, which madness affects us all, outside the Church as well as inside, Dr Shaw strikes me as someone who is thinking through many issues with unusual sobriety, care, nuance.

I regret I do not find his carefully considered reflectiveness in many Catholic circles as often as I would like like.

The so-called interview with myself is really more a conversation between us, one where he often has much better things to say than I do!

Another one is coming soon and we plan to do more together in the future.

I will add: the topics in our conversation are, I think, are important ones – more so than many realise.For we face something akin to a second Reformation in the religious life of the West and how few seem to notice . . .

Now, Dr Shaw is placing this podcast on several platforms, but here it is on my own YouTube channel.

May God greatly bless you and keep you all in these trying times.

  • 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
