The Pope’s Great Psychology Adventure By Peter Ewer
Hey buddy, can you lend me a dime? What’s a dime? Never mind, did you hear this one?
“Pope Francis once underwent psychoanalysis with a Jewish analyst, according to a new book-length interview of the pontiff conducted by a French academic.
Francis said that he saw the psychoanalyst weekly for about six months when he was 42 years old.
It’s unclear why the pope specified the analyst’s religion. The full English-language text of the anecdote is not yet available.
Francis went to see the psychoanalyst “to clarify certain things,” he said. Francis said that analyst was “a very good person who helped me very much.”
Ok, back to the footie. Meat pies with dead horse really go down well in the cold.
