Albert the Great

Today the Church remembers St Albert the Great.  Back in March, Pope Benedict devoted one of his General Audience teachings to St Albert.  Albert was extremely gifted intellectually, and did not allow his gifts to go to waste.

Prior to his detailed account of St Albert’s life, our Holy Father highlighted some reasons why Albert was able to achieve excellence in the different areas of his life:

God often speaks to us in the years of our youth and points out to us the project of our life. As it was for Albert, so also for all of us, personal prayer, nourished by the Lord’s word, frequent reception of the Sacraments and the spiritual guidance of enlightened people are the means to discover and follow God’s voice.
