Saint of the Day

St. Isidore the Farmer (1070-1130)
When their son died, Isidore, and his wife St. Mary de la Cabeza, made vows to live celibately together. They attended Mass together everyday. Once, when he was accused of neglecting his work to attend Mass, angels were found plowing the fields in his place.

Reflections from the Saints

Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin. All hope consists in confession. In confession there is a chance for mercy. Believe it firmly. Do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God. Hope and have confidence in confession.
– St. Isidore of Seville
