Francis Interview No. 8
“Violence in the Name of God does not correspond to our Time”; “Very concerned about Unemployment Rate of Young People”; “My Prayer is Jewish [first], then I take the Eucharist, which is Christian”
After a 2-month hiatus, “Pope” Francis has returned with yet another interview. According to our reckoning, it is the eighth of its kind since the Argentinian layman Jorge Bergoglio usurped the papal office on March 13, 2013.
Speaking to Enrique Simmerman of the Spanish daily La Vanguardia, Francis answered sundry questions posed to him about war, the economy, society, fundamentalism, his relations with the Jews, Pius XII, Benedict XVI’s resignation, and more.
