From Europe: the Catholic pilgrim...
Two pilgrims: Evan and Igor. Igor is a humble pilgrim from Slovakia who walked to Rome and Spain and Assisi and shows up in Rome now and then. He travels by foot and begs for offerings on the streets. Just last night in the pouring rain he was in front of Roma Termini asking for an "offerto" (offering). He speaks fine Italian and is very nice. Notice the burlap habit made of jute, hemp or flax!

An image from the days before christendom was destroyed.
I have a website that sells hemp necklaces. I love the habit in that pic!
Look at you Evan, leaving your mark on the Catholic blogosphere... You always end up in the darndest places!
I have seen this guy ( the one in jute habit) in Assisi when I went there in 2000.
