St. Isidore The Farmer

Isidore the Farmer (Isidore the Laborer) was born in Madrid in 1070. He was from a poor family and he became a hired hand for the wealthy Juan de Vergas on an estate near Madrid. Isidore was a very devoted Christian, attending Mass every morning and sharing what little he had with those poorer than himself. His wife, Maria Torribia shared his devotion and is honored as a saint with the name Santa Maria della Cabeza. During his life Isidore worked many miracles; when their son fell in a well, the water level miraculously rose at the prayers of Isidore and Maria so that the boy floated safely to the top. Isidore died May 15, 1130. He was canonized in 1622 and his feast is May 15.Saint Isidore the Farmer would spend his days praying and churchgoing. His employer questioned how Isidore finished his work if he only ever prayed. The master went to the fields and found him praying near the trees while angels completed the farm duties.
