Von Hildebrands Everywhere Part Deux

Part II of what I hope to be an ongoing series on the Von Hildebrands.

First, Rorate Caeli posted a short article about Dietrich and his opposition to Pope Paul VI's handling of the Petrine Office:

Dietrich von Hildebrand Confronts Pope Paul VI

"TLM: You realize, of course, Doctor, that as soon as you mention this idea of infiltration, there will be those who roll their eyes in exasperation and remark, “Not another conspiracy theory!”

AVH: I can only tell you what I know. It is a matter of public record, for instance, that Bella Dodd, the ex-Communist who reconverted to the Church, openly spoke of the Communist Party’s deliberate infiltration of agents into the seminaries. She told my husband and me that when she was an active party member, she had dealt with no fewer than four cardinals within the Vatican “who were working for us.”

Many a time I have heard Americans say that Europeans “smell conspiracy wherever they go.” But from the beginning, the Evil One has “conspired” against the Church – and has always aimed in particular at destroying the Mass and sapping belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. That some people are tempted to blow this undeniable fact out of proportion is no reason for denying its reality. On the other hand, I, European born, am tempted to say that many Americans are naïve; living in a country that has been blessed by peace, and knowing little about history, they are more likely than Europeans (whose history is a tumultuous one) to fall prey to illusions.Rousseau has had an enormous influence in the United States. When Christ said to His apostles at the Last Supper that “one of you will betray Me,” the apostles were stunned. Judas had played his hand so artfully that no one suspected him, for a cunning conspirator knows how to cover his tracks with a show of orthodoxy."

Also Eric Metaxas had Alice on his show again where she talks about a miracle (in relation to her late husband):

Also Glenn Beck had Alice on his TV show for the whole hour the other night.  The clip below is just a taste of it.  You can subscribe to The Blaze for an initial trial of $1, and when you are done you can unsubscribe and you will get your dollar back.  It is worth watching the whole interview:
