Another Great Saint

Happy feastday of St. Albert the Great, the saint who taught "everthing there is to know" and the instructor of the great St. Thomas Aquinas! I wish I had time to post more about him, as he's one of the great minds of the Church. We owe much to him! Along with St. Thomas Aquinas he's one of the heavenly patrons who's so good to apply to for aid in our studies. And in this day, where knowlege has a tendency to be so misplaced in the world, his wisdom is sorely needed!

Prayer to St. Albert Magnus

Dear Scientist and Doctor of the Church, natural science always led you to the higher science of God. Though you had an encyclopedic knowledge, it never made you proud, for you regarded it as a gift of God. Inspire scientists to use their gifts well in studying the wonders of creation, thus bettering the lot of the human race and rendering greater glory to God. Amen.
