Roger Buck: Ep. 14 - EWTN Interview (Part 2) - on Ireland, the New Age and the Sacred Heart

The second part of Mr Buck's interview with Paul MacAree on EWTN Radio Ireland.

In this second part of a "Celtic Connections" radio interview originally broadcast by EWTN Radio in Ireland, Roger Buck speaks with Irish host Paul MacAree about the New Age Movement, Catholic Ireland and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. He also tells of his conversion to Catholicism, after many years as a New Age activist, including his years as a member of the Findhorn Community in Scotland, probably the most well-known New Age community in the world, which has played a key role in shaping New Age ideology. While the discussion should be helpful to Christians everywhere - Protestants as well as Catholics - trying to understand the New Age Movement, the interview also reflects the Irish context and Buck's profound debt to Irish Catholicism - which very much served to liberate him from his long-held, deeply entrenched liberal, secular and New Age views. Attention is also given to Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as powerful antidotes to the spread of (a largely Eastern) New Age spirituality. Finally, this episode also features some additional commentary by Roger Buck at the END of the interview - AFTER the closing credits of the original EWTN episode.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
