CHARTING NEW TERRITORY: THE CHURCH GETTING HER NOSE OUT OF PEOPLE'S SEX LIVES
In a new book on Pope Francis soon to be released, the pope offers a kind of doctrine and then a personal opinion:
He repeats his opposition to gay marriage but accepts the civil union of people of the same sex.
(This is my comments:) How about Holy Communion for those in any kind of human relationship configurations?
Personally, I am not a control freak and I do have a live and let live perspective on life. I also believe that anyone at their death and personal judgment have to answer for themselves.
Does the pope need psychoanalysis to clarify his thinking in general and the implications of his acceptance of same sex civil unions and the reception of Holy Communion? Evidently Pope Francis says YES!
In a new book, Pope Francis reveals that he consulted a Jewish psychoanalyst once a week for six months when he was 42 years old and that it “helped me a lot at a moment in my life…when I needed to clarify things.” He disclosed this very personal detail of his life for the first time in a book-length interview with a French intellectual, Dominique Wolton, that will be published on Sept. 6, the day the pope travels to Colombia.
