Relevance of St. Albert the Great
St. Albert the Great remains relevant even in today's
busy world. His quest for knowledge and inspirational
teachings has encouraged Christians to continue with
their higher education.
St. Albert the Great believed that all creation was
proof of God's existence and that the all scientific
knowledge revealed something about Him. Not only has
God given mankind the Bible but He has given the world
the book of creation just waiting to reveal God's wisdom
and power. St. Albert saw the hand of God in the scientific
knowledge of the world.
St. Albert is a great inspiration to all people who
seek to find enlightenment through knowledge. Pursuing
further education is a goal for most people, giving
them the hope for a good life and stronger faith in
Christ. Wearing a St. Albert charm or St. Albert
medallion is a wonderful way to gain inspiration to
continue pursuing knowledge and through knowledge, discover
the power of God.
