Spiritual Resources

This section offers prayers and resources for those close to the land.

As shown in the MENU at right, we provide here some of our resources for rural devotion:
Rural Life Prayerbook is a pocket-size book published in 1955, but still containing

much for family farmers -- and anyone who feels a closeness to rural life. We provide some of the prayers and blessings from this prayerbook, but we also offer copies of this handy prayerbook through our online Store.

Catholic Rural Ethic is our rendition of Catholic social teaching in the context of rural life and agricultural production. When we advocate for a certain stance or position on farming, the environment or other rural issues, we turn first to Catholic social teaching to inform our rural ethic.
Isidore and Maria are our patron saints. Here we offer their prayer cards and other resources that remind us to stay humble and pious in rural work and care of God's creation.
Prayers for Rural Families are a few examples of prayers taken from our Rural Life Prayerbook and other resources. We welcome more prayers and will add what we can to this web section.
Seasonal Prayers are also taken from the Rural Life Prayerbook, but include other prayers and blessings that pertain to the natural seasons throughout the liturgical year.
