Description

Pope Francis recounts his early life, including his relationship with his mother and his grandmothers, former girlfriends and childhood sweethearts, as well as the psychoanalysis he underwent aged 42. Dominique Wolton asks Pope Francis about his decision not to live at the grand Apostolic Palace, about his views on the future of Europe, all within the context of politics, society, and the role of the Church. No subject is taboo, with paedophile priests, divorce, and the role of women in the church all coming into the discussion.Dominique Wolton, French sociology and politics specialist, reveals the fascinating inner thoughts of His Holiness, including personal truths and stories from his early life never before made public. Recorded over the course of a year, these warm and human encounters freely address the major issues of our time: peace and war, politics and religion, globalization and cultural diversity, fundamentalism and secularism, Europe and migrants, ecology, inequalities in the world, ecumenism and inter-religious dialogue, the individual, family, time, trust and joy.
