HWP: St. Isidore

After missing a couple of weeks of the HWP and not preaching this past weekend (thus, no homily post), it's about time to get back to the blog and start posting things again! Today is the feast of St. Isidore the Farmer, so I figure today we could post a couple of prayers for him. One is more for farmers and the other is for humility after the example of St. Isidore himself. Enjoy!

Prayers to St. Isidore the Farmer

Dear St. Isidore, you know how normal it is to cultivate the land for you were employed as a farm laborer most of your life. Although you received God's help materially through the angels in the field, all farmers are aided spiritually to see the wonders God has strewn on this earth. Encourage all farmers in their labors and help them to feed many people. Amen.

and this one....

God, through the intercession of St. Isidore, the holy farmer, grant that we may overcome all feelings of pride. May we always serve You with that humility which pleases You, through his merits and example. Amen.
