St. Albert the Great was born in 1206 and died on November 15, 1280. He was canonized in 1931 by Pope Pius XI. His feast day is celebrated on November 15. Albert means “noble and brilliant.” He is known as Albertus Magnus, Doctor Expertus, and Doctor Universalis. St. Albert taught at both Cologne and Paris. He was a teacher of St. Thomas Aquinas. He was known for his wide interest in botany, biology, and processes of observable animal life. He wrote and illustrated on many biologically diverse subjects.

 

He is the patron saint of teachers, medical technicians and technologists, students, theologians, scientists, biologists, philosophers, schoolchildren, students of theology, and World Youth Day.

 

St. Albert commented on the words of institution, “Do this in remembrance of Me” and commented, “Two things should be noted. The first thing is the command that we should us this sacrament, which is shown when Christ says, “Do this.” The second thing is that this sacrament commemorates that the Lord is going to death for our sake.”
