Forgiveness and Death
When his passing was near, two missionary priests did come to him and gave him the last sacraments. Isidore told the two fathers that he had forgiven all those who had treated him so badly and that, Lord willing, he would continue to pray for them in Heaven. Having received the full cup of his suffering, Isidore died on August 15, 1909 with a Rosary in his hand and wearing his beloved brown scapular.
