We present "Memoirs of a Happy Failure," the latest book by Dr. Alice von Hildebrand. Here, a review of this book by His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke
“Memoirs of a Happy Failure fill us with gratitude for the gift of Dr. Alice von Hildebrand’s life in Christ, lived with so much integrity and vigor over many years, as she has tirelessly given witness to the truth by both her example and her teaching. Especially noteworthy are the chapters of her memoirs which treat the challenges she faced during her thirty-seven years of teaching at Hunter College. Amidst the often difficult challenges, she experienced the incomparable blessing of students inspired, through the knowledge of truth gained in her philosophy courses, to seek Him who is Truth and to receive the gift of faith in Christ Who alone is our salvation. Dr. von Hildebrand was a highly competent professor who truly loved her students and, therefore, rejoiced, above all, when they came to the truth at its living source in God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I am confident that Memoirs of a Happy Failure, by which Dr. Alice von Hildebrand recounts her life and work as a philosopher, will encourage the reader, and particularly all teachers, to be steadfast in speaking and living “the truth in love” (Cf. Eph 4:15).”
