Saint November 15 : St. Albert the Great : Patron of #Sciences; #Philosophers; #Scientists; Students

“It is by the path of love, which is charity, that God draws near to man, and man to God. But where charity is not found, God cannot dwell. If, then, we possess charity, we possess God, for ‘God is Charity.’”
Today, November 15, we celebrate the feast day of Saint Albert the Great (1206-1280), Doctor of the Church, bishop, teacher, theologian, and one of the Church’s greatest intellects. Widely admired for his wisdom and learning, he was known as “Albertus Magnus” to his contemporaries (“Albert the Great”), and by those who came after him as “Doctor universalis” (“Teacher of all that there is to know”). Saint Albert is the patron saint of scientists. His works constantly remind us of the importance of both faith and reason, and that there can be no separation between these—in fact, faith and reason reinforce and sustain each other.
 Albert was born the son of a military Lord in service to Emperor Frederick II. The family lived in Lauingen on the Danube, near Ulm, Germany. His parents were wealthy, which afforded him the finest education. Also quite pious, they instructed him in the ways of the faith. As a child, he was drawn to scientific pursuits, and demonstrated an unexpected aptitude for reasoning given his age. So advanced was his thinking, he began studying humanities and natural sciences at the university of Bologna at just 15. The university, closely associated with the Dominican Order, drew Albert closer to his commitment to serving the Lord. This was further fired by the arrival of Blessed Reginald of Orleans, a Dominican preacher and former professor in Paris, who arrived at the college to preach.
Not long after, a second Dominican, Blessed Jordan of Saxony, arrived in Padua. An eloquent preacher, he drew many—including young Albert—toward religious life. Albert’s family was opposed to his entering the Order, given his youth and exceptional scientific prowess, but Albert was torn. One night, in his dreams, he saw himself entering the order, only to depart soon afterwards. The very next day, he heard Blessed Jordan preach, specifically about how the Devil turns those who would enter religious orders away from their calling through dreams and false promises. After Mass, Albert found Blessed Jordan, inquiring: “Master, who revealed my heart to you?” He subsequently entered the Order that summer, at the age of 16.
As a Dominican, Albert continued his studies, earning a Doctorate in theology. He obediently taught, wherever he was sent, traveling to Cologne, Padua, Bologna, Saxony, Fribourg, Ratisbonne, and Strasbourg. In each of these places he attracted numerous disciples, some of them destined for illustrious careers. However, Albert himself remained humble and focused only o the Lord.
When Blessed Jordan died in 1237, Albert assumed his duties as General until his successor was elected. At that point, he returned to Cologne, where he was to meet his most illustrious disciple, Saint Thomas Aquinas. While his classmates saw Thomas as a mute and unlearned man, Albert recognized in him the grace and glory of the Lord. Together, they traveled to the University of Paris, where Saint Albert’s theology and philosophy blossomed and changed the manner in which the world thought. While he wrote many scientific works, he was, first and foremost, a Catholic. Gifted with encyclopedic knowledge, he used this gift in service to the Church. He used his reason and thinking diligently. He was a brilliant scholar, student and seeker for truth. His writings fill thirty-eight volumes. His explanations on vast subjects took twenty years to complete. Albert possessed boundless writing energies and wrote exclusively on natural science, logic, rhetoric, mathematics, astronomy, ethics, economics, politics, metaphysics, physics, mineralogy, chemistry, biology, botany and human/animal physiology.
While Saint Albert would have been quite content to remain in Paris, writing and teaching, obedience to his Order bade him travel back to Germany when he was elected Provincial. He thereafter served his community, traveling to all the monasteries in his jurisdiction by foot, without any money, across long distances—Austria, Bavaria, Saxony, and Holland. In 1260, he was appointed bishop of Regensberg. After three years, he was permitted to resign, but was subsequently called to be an adviser to the pope and was sent on several diplomatic missions. Amid his journeys and works of zeal, Saint Albert found the time to write his thirty-eight volumes on the natural sciences, philosophy and theology.
Saint Albert died, apparently of fatigue, at the age of seventy-three. His body was buried at the Dominican Church, Saint Andrea’s, in Cologne. Three years after his death, his body was in a state of perfect preservation and his body exuded the delightful fragrance or sanctity recorded at the graves of many saints. Miraculous healings were reported at his tomb side. Others received visions that were recorded due to Albert's intercession. His relics continue to be venerated there today.
It is often said of Saint Albert the Great: "He was great in science, greater in philosophy, greatest in theology." He discovered a science above all other sciences—the knowledge that only God can impart, a heavenly wisdom that comes when reason and faith are joined together in charity towards others in prayer and action. Saint Albert reminds us not to rely on anything or trust anyone more than God. In this trust, faith and reason unite, leading us toward a greater knowledge of eternity.
Marian Prayer of Saint Albert the Great:
“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.” For note, Mary, for you have found grace, not taken it as Lucifer tried to so. You have found grace, not lost it as Adam did. You have found favor with God because you desired and sought it. You have found uncreated Grace, that is, God himself became your Son, and with the Grace you have found and obtained every uncreated good.”
Selected Quotation from Saint Albert the Great:
"There are some people who attribute all these things to divine order and say that we must not consider in them any other cause but the will of God. This in part we can agree to. Yet we do not say that he does this because of a natural cause of which he is the first mover, since he is the cause of all movement; for we are not seeking a reason or explanation of the divine will but rather investigating natural causes which are as instruments through which God's will is manifested. It is not sufficient to know these things in a general sort of way; what we are looking for is the cause of each individual thing according to the nature belonging to it. This is the best and most perfect kind of knowledge."
God Our Father,
you endowed St. Albert with the talent of combining human wisdom with divine faith. Keep us true to his teachings that the advance of human knowledge may deepen our knowledge and love of you. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Catechesis on the Commandments, 13: "Do not say false testimony"

Dear brothers and sisters, good morning!

In today's catechesis we will address the Eighth Word of the Decalogue: "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor".

This commandment - says the Catechism - "forbids falsifying the truth in relations with others" (No. 2464). Living in non-authentic communications is serious because it prevents relationships and therefore prevents love. Where there is lie there is no love, there can not be love. And when we talk about communication between people we mean not only words, but also gestures, attitudes, even silences and absences. A person speaks with everything he is and what he does. We are all in communication, always. We all live by communicating and we are constantly poised between truth and falsehood.

But what does it mean to tell the truth? Does it mean being honest? Or exactly? In reality, this is not enough, because one can be sincerely mistaken, or one can be precise in detail but not grasp the meaning of the whole. Sometimes we justify ourselves by saying, "But I said what I felt!" Yes, but you have absolutized your point of view. Or: "I only told the truth!". Maybe, but you've revealed some personal or confidential facts. How much chatter destroys the communion for inappropriateness or lack of delicacy! On the contrary, chatter kills, and this was said by the apostle James in his Letter. The talker, the chatter are people who kill: kill others, because the tongue kills like a knife. Be careful! A talker or a talker is a terrorist, because with his tongue he throws the bomb and goes quiet, but the thing that says that bomb thrown destroys the fame of others. Do not forget: to chat is to kill.

But then: what is the truth? This is the question asked by Pilate, just as Jesus, in front of him, fulfilled the eighth commandment (cf. Jn 18,38). In fact, the words "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor" belong to the forensic language. The Gospels culminate in the account of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus; and this is the story of a trial, of the execution of the sentence and of an unheard-of consequence.

When asked by Pilate, Jesus says: "This is why I was born and for this I came into the world to bear witness to the truth" (Jn 18:37). And this "testimony" Jesus gives it with his passion, with his death. The evangelist Mark narrates that "the centurion, who stood before him, having seen him breathe in that way, said: Truly this man was the Son of God!" (15.39). Yes, because it was consistent, it was consistent: with that way of dying, Jesus manifests the Father, his merciful and faithful love.

Truth finds its full realization in the very person of Jesus (cf. Jn 14: 6), in his way of living and dying, fruit of his relationship with the Father. This existence as children of God, He, risen, also gives it to us by sending the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of truth, who attests to our hearts that God is our Father (cf. Rom 8:16).

In every one of his actions man, people affirm or deny this truth. From small everyday situations to the most demanding choices. But it is the same logic, always: what parents and grandparents teach us when they tell us not to lie.
Let us ask ourselves: what truth do the works of us Christians attest, our words, our choices? Everyone can ask themselves: am I a witness to the truth, or am more or less a liar disguised as a man? Everyone is asked. Christians are not exceptional men and women. But we are children of the heavenly Father, who is good and does not disappoint us, and puts love for our brothers in their hearts. This truth is not said so much with discourses, it is a way of existing, a way of life and is seen in every single act (cf. Gc 2:18). This man is a real man, that woman is a real woman: you see. But why, if you do not open your mouth? But it behaves as true, as true. He says the truth, he acts with the truth. A nice way to live for us.

Truth is the marvelous revelation of God, of his Father's face, is his boundless love. This truth corresponds to human reason but overcomes it infinitely, because it is a gift descended on earth and incarnated in Christ crucified and risen; it is made visible by those who belong to it and shows its own attitudes.

Not to say false testimony means to live as a child of God, who never, never denies himself, never tells lies; to live as children of God, letting the great truth emerge in every act: that God is Father and we can trust Him. I trust God: this is the great truth. From our trust in God, who is a Father and loves me, loves us, my truth is born and to be truthful and not a liar.

Pozdrawiam serdecznie pielgrzymów polskich. Katechizm Kościoła Katolickiego przypomina nam, że „prawda lub prawdomówność jest cnotą, która polega na tym, by się okazywać prawdziwym w swoich czynach i mówić to, co prawdziwe w swoich słowach, wystrzegając się dwulicowości, udawania i obłudy” (nr 2505). Niech to pomaga nam wzrastać w bratniej miłości, sprawiedliwości i w odważnym wyznawaniu wiary. Nich będzie pochwalony Jezus Chrystus.

#Breaking Valid Reasoning for Postponing US Vote against Abuse by Cardinal and Vatican Insider


Postponement of the vote on anti-abuse regulations in the US was sent to the Episcopal Conference in a letter that Cardinal Marc Ouellet, Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, sent on Sunday to Cardinal DiNardo by the apostolic nuncio Christophe Pierre.
It was due to the fact that the text arrived in the Vatican too late to be studied and discussed. Thus, there are problems with the canonical norms, as some of the “standards”.

In a Nov. 13 interview with host Msgr. Jim Vlaun during "Conversation with Cardinal Dolan" on SiriusXM's Catholic Channel, Cardinal Dolan explained, "However, I think the bishops quickly took a deep breath and said, 'Wait a minute, that's still doesn't keep us from talking about it."   "That still doesn't keep us from giving Cardinal DiNardo a sound sense of direction as to where we should go and almost to deputize him to bring that to Rome at the February meeting."
"I think we bishops in the United States keep reminding ourselves, 'Whoa, wait a minute, we are Catholic. We are members of the church universal and we are a small segment of the church universal,'" clarified the Cardinal. "We know here in the United States, this is not just a Catholic problem. We're talking about the sexual abuse of minors. It is a problem in every religion, every organization, every family, every institution, every school."
"It is not just a Catholic problem. ... Nor is it just an American problem. Now, we know that it's throughout the world," Cardinal Dolan said. "So I think what the Holy Father is saying, 'Wait a minute, we don't want you to get too far ahead here. We appreciate what you're doing in the United States, but we want you to be part of the universal discussion.'"
Vatican reporter,  Andrea Tornielli,  wrote Nov. 13 in Vatican Insider that "a Vatican source involved in the matter" told him: 
"It is wrong to think the Holy See does not share the objective of the U.S. bishops to have effective instruments for combating the phenomenon of the abuse of minors and to establish firm points regarding the responsibility of bishops themselves. The motive for asking for a postponement (of the vote) should not be considered putting on the brakes, but an invitation to better evaluate the proposed texts, including in view of the meeting in February of all the presidents of the bishops' conferences of the world with the pope dedicated to the struggle against abuse."

They went on to explain that problems have arisen with some inconsistencies found between the contents of the document concerning the national commission on the responsibility of bishops and the Code of Canon Law. 
The Apostolic Nuncio Pierre during the opening of the Assembly quoted Georges Bernanos: "those who claim to reform the Church with the same means used to reform temporal societies will not only fail but will put themselves infallibly outside the Church. The Church can be reformed only through suffering, we can’t reform the visible Church unless we suffer for the invisible Church. The vices of the Church cannot be reformed unless we boast example of her most heroic virtues"
 The nuncio explained “one must not renounce the responsibility of reforming oneself first of all, nor can one "transfer the deposit of trust to other institutions. Regaining trust is not enough. When it comes to the responsibility we have for children and vulnerable adults, we must show that we can solve problems, instead of delegating them to others".

#BreakingNews Asia Bibi still in Pakistan as Negotiations for Asylum Stalled - Please Pray


Asia Bibi case: asylum talks stalled
The Christian woman acquitted of blasphemy still cannot leave the country. Canada has officially offered asylum, whilst the United Kingdom has refused fearing attacks against its embassies. Amid all this there is some joy as Asia Bibi’s husband finally embraced her again.
Islamabad (AsiaNews) - In Pakistan, negotiations have stalled over Asia Bibi's asylum. The Christian woman acquitted on blasphemy charges was freed but not allowed to leave the country after Islamic radicals who forced the government the review her sentence.
"We have no news,” Joseph Nadeem, executive director of the Renaissance Education Foundation, told AsiaNews. “We are unaware of any contacts between the government and foreign countries. Newspapers report many stories, but not all of them are true."
For now, the Christian woman is "hiding in a secret location” but "the good news is that she was able to meet her husband after ten years,” the activist said.
Asia Bibi was arrested in 2009 and sentenced to death in 2010 on the false charges of insulting the Prophet Muhammad. Her case has attracted the attention of several countries around the world.
Some, like Canada, have officially announced that they are involved in confidential negotiations with the Pakistani government. Yesterday Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in France for the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, said that his government was “in discussions with the Pakistani government” about offering asylum to Asia Bibi. "There is a delicate domestic context that we respect which is why I don't want to say any more about that, but I will remind people Canada is a welcoming country," he told AFP. Other countries, such as the United Kingdom, have categorically excluded providing protection and asylum.
Fear of unrest on British territory and the risk of attacks by Islamic radicals against its embassies around the world are given as reasons.
Recently, Asia’s husband Ashiq Masih appealed to the United Kingdom, later to the US, Canada and Italy.
According to Abraham Mathai, president of Indian Christian Voice, the position of British Prime Minister Theresa May is "deplorable and shocking".
It is “an embarrassment” that shows the country "Succumbing to extremist pressure”. For him, “denying asylum to Asia Bibi” is a sign that the “extreme radicalisation of the UK is now complete".
Meanwhile, Asia Bibi’s family continues to "pray for the good resolution” of the situation, and is “grateful to the Lord for her release,” said Joseph Nadeem.
"The Christian mother is under a special security regime,” he explained. “We are waiting for better times. All of them hope to finally lead a free life, safe and far from Pakistan."

Lectionary: 493

Reading 1TI 3:1-7

Beloved:
Remind them to be under the control of magistrates and authorities,
to be obedient, to be open to every good enterprise.
They are to slander no one, to be peaceable, considerate,
exercising all graciousness toward everyone.
For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, deluded,
slaves to various desires and pleasures,
living in malice and envy,
hateful ourselves and hating one another.

But when the kindness and generous love
of God our savior appeared,
not because of any righteous deeds we had done
but because of his mercy,
he saved us through the bath of rebirth
and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
whom he richly poured out on us
through Jesus Christ our savior,
so that we might be justified by his grace
and become heirs in hope of eternal life.

Responsorial PsalmPS 23:1B-3A, 3BC-4, 5, 6

R. (1) The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In verdant pastures he gives me repose;
Beside restful waters he leads me;
he refreshes my soul.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
He guides me in right paths
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side
With your rod and your staff
that give me courage.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
Only goodness and kindness follow me
all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
for years to come.
R. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.

GospelLK 17:11-19

As Jesus continued his journey to Jerusalem,
he traveled through Samaria and Galilee.
As he was entering a village, ten lepers met him.
They stood at a distance from him and raised their voice, saying,
"Jesus, Master! Have pity on us!"
And when he saw them, he said,
"Go show yourselves to the priests."
As they were going they were cleansed.
And one of them, realizing he had been healed,
returned, glorifying God in a loud voice;
and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked him.
He was a Samaritan.
Jesus said in reply,
"Ten were cleansed, were they not?
Where are the other nine?
Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?"
Then he said to him, "Stand up and go;
your faith has saved you."
