Saint Isidore of Seville
Saint Isidore was born in Spain. Two of his brothers and one of his sisters are also Saints!
One day, when Saint Isidore was a little boy, he saw water dripping onto a rock. The water was gentle, but Saint Isidore could see that over time, the water had created a hole in the rock. Saint Isidore realized that if he kept studying, little by little he would reach his goals, just as the water eventually made a hole in the rock. Because of his patience, he became a very smart man, and he even wrote a dictionary and an encyclopedia.
Saint Isidore served as the Archbishop of Seville for more than 30 years. There were many problems in Spain during his life. However, through his kindness and patience, Saint Isidore brought some peace to the Spanish people. We can learn from Saint Isidore that it is important to have patience with ourselves and with people around us.
