Patron Saint of Computers day

In 1997 Pope John Paul II made Saint Isidore of Seville the patron saint of computers, computer programming, and the internet, and today is his feast day.

Saint Isidore was a sixth century scholar famed for his wisdom and writings at a critical time for the Catholic Church in Spain. He was bishop of Seville for 32 years, which this is used as part of his name to distinguish him from Saint Isidore the Farmer.
