SAN ALBERTO MAGNO
Doctor of the Church
Pope Pius canonized and declared Saint Albert the Great a Doctor of the Church. In 1941, Pope Pius XII constituted him patron before God of students of the natural sciences.
O God, fountain and origin of all wisdom, you made the bishop Blessed Albert great in harmonizing human wisdom with divine faith; grant, we beseech you, that adhering to his magisterial teaching, and through the advance of the sciences, we may come to a deeper knowledge and love of you. This we ask you through Christ our Lord. Amen.
