Saint Isidore of Madrid - Confessor (1170).
Saint Isidore was born near Madrid of very poor but very Christian parents, who early inspired in him love for God and horror of sin. Saint Isidore, though poor, shared all he had with the poor. He has protected the city of Seville and the kings of Spain themselves urged his canonization, which was carried out in 1622 by Pope Gregory XV.
