St. Al­bert the Great

Manila Bulletin - - National News -

The Catholic Church hon­ors today the mem­ory of Saint Al­bert the Great (San Alberto Magno), the pa­tron saint of sci­en­tists and philoso­phers. Com­mem­o­ra­tive masses, nove­nas, and special prayers will be held in sev­eral Catholic churches in many parts of the world in honor of the ven­er­ated Ger­man saint. Known as the Uni­ver­sal Doc­tor in recog­ni­tion of his ex­tra­or­di­nary ge­nius and ex­ten­sive knowl­edge in sa­cred and sec­u­lar sciences, St. Al­bert once served as the provin­cial su­pe­rior of the Do­mini­can Order. He also served as bishop of Ratis­bon in his na­tive Ger­many. Considered as the great­est Ger­man philoso­pher and the­olo­gian of the Mid­dle Ages, St. Al­bert ad­vo­cated for the peace­ful co-ex­is­tence of sci­ence and re­li­gion. (Christina I. Her­moso)
