ST. ISIDORE the FARMER – Patron of Agricultural Workers
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.
