Imitating St. Francis

(Via Konkani Catholics)
Two years ago, when Reagan D'Souza resigned his lucrative software job to work in a Catholic center for destitutes, his friends and relatives were surprised.

The 25-year-old Indian Catholic youth still springs surprises as he tries to imitate his role model, Saint Francis of Assisi. Four months ago, he donned a long jute garment, which he wears even during hot summer days. He keeps only one change of clothing and goes around barefoot.

He was born in 1981 and his parents named him Reagan....

I think I see the beginning of his pathology.

LOL ... though, somehow, Reagan and St. Francis don't quite go together in the same breath ... :)
