Notes from Hibernia

  Some notes from Hibernia, some of them quite personal. I have had very little time to devote either to this website or to personal correspondence this summer. All I could manage was posting some pre- written extracts from my upcoming book, Cor Jesu Sacratissimum. Happily, that time-situation, at least, seems to be changing  – […]

The Catholic House: Divided Against Itself

    I regret that I remain unable to devote the needed time and attention to both this site and correspondence. However, here is another extract from my upcoming book:   A clear disjunction can be found everywhere in the contemporary Church. There is a dissonance between the desire to resemble the world and the […]

Protecting Ireland from the Sword of Death

  There shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned into fables. (Saint Paul to Timothy (2 Timothy 4:3-4)   Many years ago, Roger and […]

Secularism and the Feast of Christ the King

  Today is the Feast of Christ the King. And how Kim and I have been blessed today by a high Latin Mass celebrated today by the Institute of Christ the King … Now, it is a truism that the Catholic Church has changed a great deal since Vatican II. It is also a truism […]

Valentin Tomberg, Catholic France and the Sacred Heart – More Very Personal Reflexions Part V

I have been writing here, a very personal series of reflexions, uncomfortably personal … I want to start picking up the threads now and drawing to a close in the next two or three entries.

The Middle Mind: Why Americans Don’t Think for Themselves – Curtis White (Review)

  Recently I have been re-reading a book by Curtis White, who is a penetrating thinker, though hardly a Christian one. The book is called: The Middle Mind: Why Americans Don’t Think for Themselves. White is a university professor and like myself, is an American, and what he means by The Middle Mind is the […]

Valentin Tomberg, Catholic Tradition and the Counter-Revolution (Part V)

In the last entry, I suggested that the Catholic corpus of Valentin Tomberg may be understood as nothing less than an extraordinary one-man crusade – a crusade by an uncanonised saint and genius towards the salvation of civilisation. I suggested that there was an astonishing effort to help carry the cross of modernity – and […]

  • 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
