Pope wants austerity, Pope Francis giving his clearest indication yet that he wants a more austere Catholic Church, said on Saturday that it should be poor and remember that its mission is to serve the poor.
The pope made his comments in an audience with journalists, explaining why he chose to take the name Francis, after St Francis of Assisi, a symbol of peace, austerity and poverty.
He called Francis "The man who gives us this spirit of peace, the poor man," and added "How I would like a poor Church, and for the poor".
Since his shock election on Wednesday, the pope has made clear he would be introducing a different style to the papacy after Benedict's resignation. On the night he was elected he shunned the papal limousine and travelled on a bus with other cardinals who had elected him. The next day he returned to the Church-run hotel where he had been staying before the conclave and insisted on paying the bill.
