Italy’s Most Handsome Man Quits Modeling to Become a Preist

Italy is renowned for various aspects, with its unwavering commitment to the Catholic Church and striking good looks standing out prominently.

It's quite fitting that a man who was once crowned the most handsome in Italy would forsake his burgeoning modeling career to wholeheartedly devote himself to God, taking on the noble calling of priesthood.

From Daily Mail UK:

Edoardo Santini, 21, was voted Italy's most beautiful man in 2019, when he was 17, in a pageant organised by ABE, a fashion group.

But after a lifetime of studying drama and dance to achieve his dream of becoming a star, he said on social media Saturday he would renounce his career for his faith.

'At 21 years of age I find myself on the path towards becoming a priest, God willing,' Edoardo said, claiming to have joined a seminary near Florence. 

'I've decided to give up modelling work, acting and dance, but I won't abandon all my passions, I'll just live them differently, offering them up to God,' said the Castel Fiorentino native.

Well, amen to that! It's heartening  to witness a young man cast aside vanity and embrace a cause far greater than himself.
