The intercession of Sts. Isidore and Maria is no small blessing! Many have prayed and experienced real help through their intercession. St. Isidore was canonized in March 1622 and, although several miracles took place during his lifetime, 438 are attributed to his intercession! In February 1947, St. Isidore was constituted as the special protector of American farmers and of Catholic Rural Life.
Catholic Rural Life houses relics of Sts. Isidore and Maria at our national office.
For the feast of St. Isidore on May 15, we asked the CRL community for support in helping to repair the reliquaries, which house the relics of these two great saints. We are very grateful for the kindness and generosity of all those who gave! We look forward to many new stories and miracles resulting from the intercession of Sts. Isidore and Maria and our ability to share these more broadly.
We are pleased to share below the before and after photos of the reliquaries!
Sts. Isidore and Maria, pray for us!
