Catholic Prayer: Prayer in Honor of Saint Isidore the Farmer
Prayer from the 1956 Rural Life Prayerbook published by National Catholic Rural Life Conference (and recently reprinted by TAN Books). St. Isidore is the patron of the NCRLC, and his feast is May 15 in the United States.
O God, who taught Adam the simple art of tilling the soil, and who through Jesus Christ, the true vine, revealed yourself the husbandman of our souls, deign, we pray, through the merits of blessed Isidore, to instill into our hearts a horror of sin and a love of prayer, so that, working the soil in the sweat of our brow, we may enjoy eternal happiness in heaven, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.Prayer Source: Rural Life Prayerbook by Alban J. Dachauer, S.J., National Catholic Rural Life Conference, 4625 Beaver Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa 50310 ncrlc.com, 1956
