Easter Season: Time for renewal and reflection


The Easter Season blends so well with the renewal of the earth: the new buds, the spring blossoms, the leafing out of trees, and seedlings emerging from our gardens. For farmers, the Easter season coincides with planting time and a welcomed return to the fields.




I like to think that many farmers still take a moment to express thanks for their vocation. By this I mean their call to produce the food and fiber we all need as people. Although agriculture has become very much a business, the seasonal return to the field causes a farmer to pause and reflect on their life’s work.



As many of our Catholic Rural Life members know, we look to the farmer as a steward of the land: a devoted caretaker of God’s creation, or at least a part of it. We do this in grateful respect to St. Isidore the Farmer whose feast day falls on May 15.
