New pope calls on clergy to 'reach out to those in need'

Vatican City, March 14 - Newly elected Pope Francis has asked clergy members to "reach out to those in need and take the Gospel to the outskirts," Cardinal Fernando Filoni said on Thursday. "Even though we may be tired at times, we are called to evangelize, especially with zeal, which means with love," Filoni said. The Argentine pontiff, who was elected the first South American pope on Wednesday, chose the name Francis in honour of Francis of Assisi, caretaker of the poor and humble.
