  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

Our dear friend and sister Alice von Hildebrand has gone to meet her Lord.

    Dear Friends,



    With sadness suffused by joy, I write to share that our beloved friend and sister Alice von Hildebrand went home to the Lord at 12:25am this morning. She died peacefully at home after a brief illness.



    Those who knew Lily often heard her say that the wick of her candle was growing ever shorter. In fact, she yearned for death — to see the face of Our Lord, to be reunited at last with her husband Dietrich, her parents, her dearest friend Madeleine Stebbins — with the peace that only true innocence and profound faith can grant.

    We will announce details of the funeral in due course.



    Faithfully and Gratefully,

    John Henry Crosby

    President & Founder

    Farewell to Alice von Hildebrand (1923 - 2022)
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Not to take a single thing away from Alice, but to suggest that the great Alice be remembered along with the great Dietrich. I think both of them were models of clarity in these foggy times.

    Perhaps a good way would be to read her book about her husband 'The Soul of a Lion: The Life of Dietrich von Hildebrand'
