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.
We also take this opportunity to post a few reviews (or blurbs, really) regarding my latest book: 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
Foreword for Monarchy by Roger Buck
