ST. ALBERT THE GREAT

MEMORIAL: NOVEMBER 15

St. Albert the Great was born in the late 12th century to a wealthy family in modern day Germany. As a young man, Albert had a conversion through the Blessed Virgin which inspired him to join the Dominicans. He became a learned student who went on to teach Theology at the University of Paris. There he taught many, including St. Thomas Aquinas. 

Albert was eventually named a bishop of the Church, but later resigned due to his desire for a life of humility and preaching. Albert’s teachings expanded outside of theology to the realms of the sciences in which he wrote many volumes on a variety of topics. St. Albert died from illness well into his 80s and was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church. He is the patron saint of scientists and philosophers.
