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. […]

Michael Martin’s Transfiguration: Notes toward a Radical Catholic Reimagination of Everything

The following review wasn’t supposed to happen. For, as I have tried to make clear, this website is virtually dormant. The plan was to revive it later this spring. But life, as John Lennon sang – once memorably, now perhaps cliched – is what happens while making other plans. And a burst of life unexpectedly produced the […]

Probably My Best Video Yet …

As the title suggests, I am more happy with this video than any other so far (although Episode 16 here is a close runner-up and very key to to my work). Unlike the “epic” Episode 16, however, this video has the added advantage of being much shorter and more succinct. For these reasons, I would […]

Holy Mass – Reverent or Irreverent?

    Early one Sunday evening, I went to Holy Mass. It was exquisite. The priest wore deep rich purple vestments, for it was Septuagisima Sunday. His chasuble was wholly visible, as he stood facing the tabernacle with the congregation. I was in the choir and the Gregorian chant we sang was sublime. The incense was heavenly and the priest’s […]

The Wall Against the Catholic Mystery

    There is a wall against the Catholic Faith, a wall of misinformation, prejudices and lies – and also sometimes entirely innocent misunderstanding. That is a major thesis explored in my new book from Angelico Press entitled Cor Jesu Sacratissimum: From Secularism and the New Age to Christendom Renewed. And that wall, I argue in […]

  • 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
