Patron Saints

Another thing this blog needs is a patron Saint or two!
Here is one I like:

Saint Isidore of Seville:
Isidore was born around the year 560 AD in Cartagena, Spain. His two brothers Leander and Fulgentius, were bishops who became saints! His sister Florentina, a nun also became a saint! (That is my dream for my sisters...)
Leander became bishop of Seville and when he died around the year 600, Isidore took his place. Isidore was bishop of Seville for 37 years.
Isidore died on April 4th, 636. He was canonized in 1598 (962 years wait...) and declared a Doctor of the Church in 1722 by Pope Innocent XIII.
