“I give you a new commandment: love one another.
As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.
This is how all will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.”
May 15: Feast of St. Isidore, Farmer
May 15 is the feast of St. Isidore, the farmer. St. Isidore was a simple farmworker, born in Madrid, who spent his life working in the service of the same wealthy landowner. He attended Mass daily and prayer continuously as he worked the fields. His faith was attended by visible signs and wonders. It was reported, for example, that angels were seen assisting him as he plowed.
O God, you have commanded us to work the land and cultivate it. We ask your blessing as we prepare to place these seeds and seedlings in the earth.
May the care we show these seeds and seedlings remind us of your tender love for your people. In your goodness protect our lands from wind and hail and let a rich crop grow from the seed we plant. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
