October Virtue of the Month: STUDIOUSNESS
(seeking knowledge to grow closer to Truth)
Saint of the Month: ST. ALBERT the GREAT
Saint Albert joined the Order of Preachers (the Dominicans) and became a great teacher. But even before he was a teacher, he was always a great student! Saint Albert loved to learn about the world God created. Knowing more about creation helped him grow in loving what was real - the Truth. And loving the Truth means loving God. Because of his study of nature, St. Albert was also one of the first people to be called a scientist!
Saint Albert the Great Feast Day: November 11th
PRAYER: Saint Albert, your study of creation helped you see God's greatness. Help me to also study well, so that the more I know, the more I will love God. Amen.
Saint Albert, pray for us.
