"Albert preached through Germany becoming a famous preacher in western Europe. In 1256, he became papal theologian in Rome. Many of his writings focused on Mary, Mother of Jesus." (Saintalbertthegreat.org)

Dear Saint Albert, you helped to show that science and church could live together. Help us to discover new things, and push the limits of science, so that we may get closer to God. Amen.
