OLIME, Slovenia – "Money has a great influence on health," Pater Earnest declares, as we examine frescoes in the Minoritski Samostan, Europe's third oldest religious pharmacy.

"Too little and you can't pay the bills, so you worry and get sick. Too much and you go crazy," he twinkles.

"Women should always carry money in their handbags, men in a wallet behind their bodies. But no one should ever carry money over their heart – or it will beat too much and have an attack."

The pater has a point, I muse, laughing: not so much about pockets, as about perspective.
