A wonderful commemorative plaque celebrating Pope Francis as the Catholic Church's 266th pontiff,
Pope Francis has said he wants "a poor church for the poor" in his first remarks to the media since he was elected leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics.
Wearing simple white robes and plain black shoes, he explained how he decided to name himself after St. Francis of Assisi: When he reached two-thirds of the vote in the conclave, a fellow cardinal embraced him and said, "Don't forget the poor."
"That's when I thought of Francis of Assisi," he said. "And that is how the name came to me: Francis of Assisi, the man of poverty, of peace."
