Biography of St. Isidor:
St Isidor was born into a poor family and worked as a farmer for all his life. He worked the fields and thanks to his efforts, these gave much fruit. The fact that he sacrified his free time to God, became for envious colleagues of Isidor, a pretext to accuse him of absenteeism. With his wife Maria, St. Isidor shared the same ideals: those of the generosity, hard work and dedication to God.
