Spanish bishop promotes St. Isidore as co-patron of Europe

.- Bishop Julian Lopez of Leon in Spain said last week he hopes to see St. Isidore of Seville declared co-patron of Europe, underscoring the “Doctor of Spain’s” theological and intellectual richness.

Bishop Lopez said St. Isidore’s theological and intellectual richness “is one of the foundations for the unity of this country, and we should seriously consider requesting that he be named co-patron of Europe.” He made his comments during the recent re-opening of the Basilica of St. Isidore, which was closed for several months of restoration.

During the Mass, Bishop Lopez noted the legacy of the saint in building the Christian identity of Western Civilization.

If the bishop’s wish is granted, St. Isidore would share the title of patron of Europe with St. Benedict of Nursia (480-547).
