"There is always enough food for the poor of Jesus." Saint Isidore the Farmer

Isidore was born in 1070, in Madrid, Spain. His parents were deeply religious. They named their son after the great St. Isidore, archbishop of Seville, Spain. His parents wanted to offer their son a first-rate education, but they could not afford it. They were tenant farmers. Their son would spend his life working behind a plough in the fields.

St. Isidore began each day at Mass. Then he would go to his job. He tried to work hard even if he didn't feel like it. He plowed and planted and prayed. He called on Mary, the saints and his guardian angel. When he had a day off, Isidore made it a point to spend extra time adoring Christ in various churches around Madrid.

Once, the parish had a dinner. Isidore arrived early and went into the church to pray. He arrived in the parish hall late. He didn't come in alone. He brought a group of beggars, too. The parishioners were upset. What if there wasn't enough food for all those beggars? But the more they filled up their plates, the more there was for everybody else. St. Isidore said kindly, "There is always enough for the poor of Jesus."
