St ISIDORE-OF-MADRID

Christian Saint

Patron Saint of Madrid, Farmers and Rural Farming Villages

Humble plowman (or ploughman if you prefer) and Patron of Madrid.

He got up early for mass — he plowed — he shared his plowman’s lunch with the poor — he plowed — he married — he plowed — he had a son — he plowed — his son died — he plowed.

After the loss of his son, he and his wife devoted themselves to holy things. In between, he plowed.

Then she died — he plowed and carried on praying.

Eventually he died too, probably from plowing-related exhaustion. Since then there seems to have been a bountiful reaping of posthumous miracles.
