Albertus Magnus


Happy Feast of the Dominican saint and Doctor of the Church, St. Albert the Great (d. 1280). He was the mentor of St. Thomas Aquinas, and is the patron of scientists. His biography, and list of astonishing accomplishments can be found here.

Check out Bro. Peter Martyr's post on our provincial website:


We also wish our brothers in the Central Province best wishes on this their patronal feast!





This statue of the saint is at the main entrance of the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum), the Dominican University in Rome.
