The other day, in response to my post on St. Benedict and phenomenology, member Kevin asked whether what he had heard was true: viz, that von Hildebrand had been a third order Franciscan. I thought it wasn't true, but just to be sure, I asked his widow. She said Kevin was right. Listen to her elaborate in her own words and voice.
NB: "Gogo" or "Gogi" was von Hildebrand's nickname from childhood. It's what all his friends called him.
