His Word Today: Saint Isadore

Good morning everyone,

Today, the Church remembers and prays with Saint Isadore of Seville (circa 560-4 April 636), a scholar who served as Archbishop of Seville (Spain) for more than thirty years.  He was instrumental in orchestrating the conversion of Visigothic kings (of Middle-aged East Germanic tribes) to Catholicism.

Through his continuing efforts he was successful in encouraging many to come to believe Jesus' words: whoever believes in me believes not only in me but also in the one who sent me (Jn 12:44).  The truth of these words are just as relevant today as they were when Jesus first uttered them.  We too are invited to believe.

Today, we are thankful to Saint Isadore for his constant and unfailing faith.  Let us ask him to intercede for us, so that we too might come to believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and that God, who sent Jesus into the world is our loving Father.  When this truth is well-founded and rooted in our hearts, we can joyfully share the good news with others too.

Have a great day.
