Pope Francis saw a Jewish psychoanalyst to ‘clarify some things’

Pope Francis has revealed that when he was 42 he had sessions weekly with a psychoanalyst to “clarify some things.”
It wasn’t specified what the future pontiff wanted to explore. The revelation came in a dozen conversations Francis had with French sociologist Dominique Wolton, writing a soon-to-be-published book.

La Stampa, an Italian daily, quoting from some of the conversations on Friday, said Francis went to the analyst’s home. Francis was quoted as saying: “One day, when she was about to die, she called me. Not to receive the sacraments, since she was Jewish, but for a spiritual dialogue.”

“She was a good person. For six months she helped me a lot,” Francis said...

Isn't there a story that St. Basil the great saw a Jewish physician?  Where does that story come from?
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

The Vatican officially renounced them a century ago, so seeing a Jewish doctor is the least of its infractions.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Maybe something a little more modern, then I'll salute.

You should see a photo of the USS Iowa or another ship of her class firing a full broadside.  World War II of course did not include any incident where the Iowa and the Yamato exchanged fire at point-blank range, although at one point I believe there was some battleship vs. cruiser gun action at a distance using the mechanical firing computers near the Phillipines.
"It is logical that the actions of the human race over time will lead to its destruction.  I, Alpha 60, am merely the agent of this destruction."

- The computer Alpha 60, from Alphaville (1964) by Jean Luc Godard, the obvious inspiration for HAL-9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

not my style. This on the other hand...

Quote from: Nun M.
The dread Pantocrator...is also "Christouli mou", (my little Christ), who really listens when you run in to your neighborhood church on the way to work to cry and light a candle because your daughter is in trouble at school. The untouchable and all-holy Mother of God is also "Panayitsa mou", who really will take your part before the court of heaven because, just like your own mom, she’ll always stick up for her children, no matter how badly they’ve behaved.

I like Pope Francis.
Maybe it helps that I'm not Roman Catholic.
