Happy feast of St. Albert, patron saint of scientists and philosophers

We honor St. Albert, born 1200, by with this poem from another scientist and philosopher, St. Hildegard of Bingen, born 1098. As a woman, Hildegard was denied higher education, but she learned about the earth and its healing powers and about God from the nuns of Bingen. Both saints taught us that creation is our first intimation of the beauty and graciousness of God. Find a friend and take turns with the calls to God and the Alleluias. Happy feast day!
