von Hildebrand, St. Francis and St. Benedict

Katie van Schaijik, Jul 14, 2012

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.
