Pope visits home of his namesake

Assisi, Italy -- Pope Francis is visiting the home of the saint who inspired his papal name.

More than 100,000 people were expected to join him on his journey to the small hillside town of Assisi, where St. Francis lived. The Pope says he wants the modern Catholic church to more closely resemble Saint Francis church of the poor.

He added that the church should think of the people first, and the church second.
