                        Isidore became a hired hand in the service of the wealthy landowner     
                          Juan de Vargas on a farm in the vicinity of Madrid.   
                           He shared what he had, even his meals, with the poor.

Isidore had deep religious instincts. He rose early in the morning to go to church.   
He spent many a holiday devoutly visiting the churches of Madrid and surrounding areas.
