However, the ecclesiastical authorities raised the real possibility of canonizing Isidro Labrador because King Felipe II, like many other members of the Spanish Royal Family, repeatedly resorted to the waters of the Madrilenian saint who, it was said, could help in curing diseases.

Finally, Isidro was beatified by Paul V on June 14, 1619 and canonized on March 12, 1622 by Gregory XV and declared patron of Spanish farmers by John XXIII in a bull in 1960.

In the santera religion, San Isidro syncretizes with Orisha oko, the deity of the Yoruba pantheon representative of the savannas, lands and cultivated fields, to whom we pray for the prosperity of the crops and for luck in all the work in the countryside.

Orisha Oko represents the land itself and the life of agricultural work and crops. Its messengers are bees and it symbolizes prosperity and fertility.

This African deity forms an important trilogy with the Orishas Oke and oggue, responsible for the crops, the rains, the internal fire and the animals.
