St. Isidore of Seville (560?-636)
The 76 years of Isidore's life were a time of conflict and growth for the
Church in Spain. The Visigoths had invaded the land a century and a half
earlier and shortly before Isidore's birth they set up their own capital.
They were Arians-Christians who said Christ was not God. Thus Spain was
split in two: One people (Catholic Romans) struggled with another (Arian
Goths). Isidore reunited Spain, making it a center of culture and learning,
a teacher and guide for other European countries whose culture was also
threatened by barbarian invaders. Born in Cartagena of a family that
included three other saints, he was educated (severely) by his elder
brother, whom he succeeded as bishop of Seville.

Life has overcome death. Light has overcome the darkness.  Jesus Christ is
Risen. The hopes of so many have been fulfilled. And we are given the gift
of a life that will never end, of forgiveness of our sins and the promise of
the Holy Spirit to help us follow God's call every day of our lives!
