Snowing on the Feast of St. Isidore the Farmer
We beg you for your intercession in this season of the year when we wish to plant
and our lettuce
and our radishes
and our onions
and our carrots...
And in this season of the year, when we wish to put away
and our boots
and our gloves
and our scarves
And hang our clothes out on the line
And send our children out to
and generally get 'the stink blown off of them.'
Please ask for God's mercy on us --
that the snow might cease --
that the weather will be henceforth warm and pleasant
and that the moisture might fall down in soft gentle rains --
that it might really be spring.
As God wills it. In the holy name of Jesus. Amen.
