Holy St. Isidore, ora pro nobis

St. Isidore: Patron of Farmers is, apparently, the guy you ask for rain.

View from the office window five minutes ago.

Just popped out to the shop to pick up a bottle of water and it really feels like it's aching to let loose out there. Temperature has dropped but there is a heavy feeling. Like anticipation.

O God, Source and Giver of all things, Who manifests Your infinite majesty, power and goodness in the earth about us, we give You honor and glory.

For the sun and rain, for the manifold fruits of our fields, for the increase of our herds and flocks we thank You. For the enrichment of our souls with divine grace, we are grateful.

Supreme Lord of the harvest, graciously accept us and the fruits of our toil, in union with Christ Your Son, as atonement for our sins, for the growth of Your Church, for peace and charity in our homes, for salvation to all. Amen.
