This Sunday at Sacred Heart church in McCartyville I believe it was said best when during petitions we prayed for patience for farmers.
The bulletin also include a special prayer for farmers I wanted to share-
O glorious St. Joseph foster father of Jesus you did provide for the holy family.
We commit to your protection all our crops and farm industries.
Deign, we beseech you, to intercede in our behalf with Almighty God, who rules the seasons , so that our fields being safe from pests and favored the weather may yield abundant crops that will allow us to supply the wants of life.
Thus freed from earthly worries may we after your example apply all our thoughts to eternal life. We beseech you to instill a love of the land into the hearts of our youth for their own salvation and that of Christian unity so that we may all share hereafter in the same blissful life you enjoy in the heaven.
St. Isidore is actually the patron saint of farmers, so an extra prayer to him certainly couldn’t hurt. I will continue to pray for your safety during this planting season.
