Saint Isidore’s Feast Day is April 4
Born into a family that included three other saints, Saint Isidore, who served 35 years as the Bishop of Seville, was born in 560 in Cartegena, Spain. His two brothers were eventually canonized as Saint Leander and Saint Fulgentius and his sister was Saint Florentina.  A devoted student of his brother, Leander, Isidore worked with him to convert the royal Visigoth Arians to Catholicism in a time when culture and aristocracy was crumbling. He showed an astute ability to learn and a strong work ethic.

Leander was known as a stern and punishing teacher, and Isidore developed in spite of what might be called abuse today. He proved to possess great intelligence and wisdom, and has been called by 19th century historian Montelembert “the last scholar of the ancient world.” Isidore showed great forgiveness for his brother and continued to work with him after his studies had concluded, finishing some important projects begun by Leander after his brother’s death, including the creation of a missal and breviary. He eventually was named Bishop of Seville and served in that capacity until his death at the age of 80 on April 4, 636. His life is celebrated in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches each year on that date.
