O Divine Creator,
Saint Albert was a bishop
who introduced Greek and Arabic science to medieval Europe,
raising understanding of botany,
biology, physics, and other studies of nature.
A scientist himself,
he wrote many books on these subjects.
I ask him to pray for all scientists today,
for their talents to be used
to promote life rather than to destroy it,
for elusive cures to be found,
and for the moral use of the discoveries
that they have already made.
O Lord, fill them with Your Holy Spirit
to guide them into understanding
and respecting that You are the Author
and Master of all creation.
pray for us.
