Prayer for the Conversion of Peart

Prayer to Saint Albert the Great

God of Truth

you endowed our brother Albert
with the gift of combining human wisdom with divine faith.
May the pursuit of all human knowledge
lead to a greater knowledge and love of you.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, you Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever.

Amen.

+ I've picked this prayer for the conversion of Neil Peart because St. Albert's life and works stand in stark contrast to Peart's imagined view of the "Dark Ages", because St. Albert was a relentless pursuer of the truth, and as patron of St. Thomas Aquinas, in life brought the talents of others to the service of that truth. +
