Francis answered, "Yes, I am afraid of interviews... you can see what I need to do."

On our first trip to Korea (2013) my husband had ear problems from the long flight so he went to a pharmacy in Seoul to buy some ear candles. The pharmacist said they don't sell them and he would need to go see a witch doctor. So what we call holistic medicine here in the West, they call witch or witch doctor.

@De Profundus, I guess attempted humor is his latest effort at the new evangelization?
