November 15 – Saint Albert the Great

Saint Albert the Great

O Divine Creator, Saint Albert the Great was a bishop who introduced Greek and Arabic science to medieval Europe, raising understanding of botany, biology, physics, and other studies of nature.  A scientist himself, he wrote many books on these subjects.  I ask him to pray for all scientists today, for their talents to be used to promote life rather than to destroy it, for elusive cures to be found, and for the moral use of the discoveries that they have already made.  O Lord, fill them with Your Holy Spirit to guide them into understanding and respecting that You are the Author and Master of all creation.  Saint Albert, pray for us.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Albert the Great

If your desire and aim is to reach the destination of the path and home of true happiness, of grace and glory, by a straight and safe way, then earnestly apply your mind to seek constant purity of heart, clarity of mind and calm of the senses. Gather up your heart’s desire and fix it continually on the Lord God. >>

The truly humble man fears only that some honor might be shown him; and if such a thing should happen to him, he is interiorly alarmed and distressed at it. >>

It is by the path of love, which is charity, that God draws near to man, and man to God. But where charity is not found, God cannot dwell. If, then, we possess charity, we possess God, for “God is Charity”. >>
