Remembering Alice von Hildebrand

Alice von Hildebrand’s life accomplishments could fill a book. She escaped Nazi Europe in her youth, became one of the leading women in Catholic philosophy, and devoted decades of her life to writing and teaching. She also had a loving relationship with her husband, the late and great Dietrich von Hildebrand. She passed away last week, and we honor her legacy with John Henry Crosby.
