......are seemingly in a rush toward cloning, embryonic stem cell research and the like, it might not be a bad thing to say a few prayers to St. Albert the Great, whose feast day is today!
Here's one from Catholic Forum:
Prayer to Saint Albertus Magnus
Dear Scientist and Doctor of the Church, natural science always led you to the higher science of God. Though you had an encyclopedic knowledge, it never made you proud, for you regarded it as a gift of God. Inspire scientists to use their gifts well in studying the wonders of creation, thus bettering the lot of the human race and rendering greater glory to God. Amen.
