Saint Albert the Great Feast Day

PLEASE JOIN US AS THE CELEBRATE THE FEAST DAY OF THE PATRON SAINT OF OUR PARISH ST. ALBERT THE GREAT

     The best day to pray to a saint is on his feast day. Let us join together to call on our patron saint to ask his intercession for graces and blessings for our parish, our families, the church, and the world. Let us not forget also to thank him for all the blessings he has obtained for our parish, including the presence of two devoted priests and our many dedicated parishioners and staff. Let us ask St. Albert to intercede for all the sick, suffering, and dying of our parish; for all those who are jobless, homeless, or hopeless; for any current problems in the parish; and for our youth.

Above all, let us beg St. Albert to help us achieve our most important task on earth: to become saints. For all his wisdom and knowledge and prestige, St. Albert never forgot that the most important thing in life was to know, love and serve the Lord and to attain the happiness of heaven.

“Even while he was still alive, the Dominican friar Albert of Cologne was called Magnus—‘the Great’—and his contemporaries said he simply knew all there was to know. He was a “Renaissance man” two centuries before the Renaissance: a teacher and preacher; a scientist, theologian, and philosopher; a shrewd shepherd and an unflinching defender of the Faith.” From St. Albert the Great by Kevin Vost, TAN Books, 2011

St. Albert the Great was convinced that all creation spoke of God and that the tiniest piece of scientific knowledge told us something about him. Along with the Bible, God has given us the book of creation revealing something of His wisdom and power. In creation, Albert saw the hand of God.

“The greater and more persistent your confidence in God, the more abundantly you will receive all that you ask.”   St. Albert the Great
