Saint Albert the Great

It is by the path of love, which is charity, that God draws near to man, and man to God. But where charity is not found, God cannot dwell. If, then, we possess charity, we possess God, for “God is Charity” (1 John 4:8)

Saint Albert the Great


Dear Saint Albert,
professed as most learned and noble,
yet still humble in your relationship with both God and man.
Help us to find the grace of charity in our hearts,
given so generously by the Holy Spirit.
With the assistance of your intercession
may we join in your learned nature
to incline ourselves truly to learn the love and charity of
Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
