Saint Isidore of Seville

Saint Isidore of Seville was born circa 560 in Cartagena, Spain. Coming from a family that had converted the Visigoths, it was no surprise that Isidore, along with his three siblings, is recognized as a saint. Around 600, when his older brother Leander died, Isidore succeeded him as the See of Seville. Isidore used his power to reform education throughout the area. The most notable influence being the creation of the Etymologiae, an encyclopedia used for some 900 years. Saint Isisdore is considered a patron saint of the Internet. His feast day is celebrated on April 4.

If he were alive today Saint Isidore might be working for Wikipedia.

Young Adult Ministry Program Idea: Ask young adults to make a list of their questions about faith and the church. Plan a gathering with a priest, deacon, or other minister at your parish and ask them to answer and discuss some of these questions with you.
