Pope Francis visits namesake's shrine at Assisi

4 October 2013 Last updated at 16:52 BST

Pope Francis visited the Umbrian hillside town of Assisi on Friday to pray at the shrine of the 13th-Century saint whose name he adopted when elected earlier this year.

During his day-long "pilgrimage" to Assisi, the Pope also met groups of poor, sick and disabled people who are cared for by Catholic orders and charities.
