The Belgian-born American Catholic philosopher, theologian, lecturer, author, and professor. Von Hildebrand was married to Dietrich von Hildebrand. Also very critical of modernism in the Catholic church, In an interview in The Latin Mass magazine in 2001, she spoke on the Latin Mass.
“The devil hates the ancient Mass. He hates it because it is the most perfect reformulation of all the teachings of the Church. It was my husband who gave me this insight about the Mass.

Alice von Hildebrand, Ph.D., is a noted speaker and author of several books on a variety of topics related to Catholicism. She is the widow of the famous Catholic philosopher Dietrich von Hildebrand, whom Pope Pius XII dubbed “the 20th century doctor of the Church.”
St. Augustine highlighted beautifully, profoundly, the difference between nature and super-nature. When God created man, he gave him a human nature. Man had all the characteristics of “creaturehood,” one completely dependent upon God.
