St Isidore T-Shirt | The Laborer 🐂
Saint Isidore, the patron saint of farmers and laborers, is a role model to live a simple, faithful life.
This shirt design is inspired by the Miracle of the Angels plowing the field.
Each morning, before starting work, Isidore would take time to attend Mass. Therefore, he started work later than his fellow servant workers. The other workers complained to the landowner that Saint Isidore was not doing his fair share of work. When the landowner investigated the worker’s complaints, he witnessed a miracle.
Alongside Saint Isidore, he saw two angels guiding an additional team of white oxen, plowing next to Isidore. Isidore was getting twice the work done as his fellow companions with the angel's help!
When the landowner asked Isidore about this, Isidore responded, “I assure you before God, who I serve as best as I can, that I have not called upon anyone to help me with my work, except God, who I invoke constantly and who is always my help and my fortress.”

The design is the white Oxen, seen plowing next to Isidore, and the sliver Sickle that is often pictured with the Saint. El Trabajador is Spanish, meaning the Laborer.
