Pope Francis on Saturday called for "a poor Church for the poor", saying he chose his papal name because St Francis of Assisi was "a man of poverty and a man of peace".

"How I would like a poor Church for the poor!" he said at a meeting with hundreds of journalists from around the world in the Vatican.
