Blessed Nicolas Steno gets Google Doodle

Blessed Nicolas Steno (1638 AD -1686 AD), bishop and scientist, has today received the rare distinction of a Google doodle, shown above.   Blessed Nicolas, a convert from Lutheranism, was a leader in the Catholic Reformation and a man of great personal holiness who devoted himself to a life of severe penance.  However, it was for his achievements in science, including pioneering work in geology and anatomy, that Blessed Nicolas was accorded the Google doodle.

Blessed Nicolas Steno, pray for us.
