A homeless man (front) cries during a procession to mark the death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday during Holy Week inside the Se Cathedral at downtown Sao Paulo March 29, 2013. Pope Francis on Thursday urged Catholic priests to devote themselves to helping the poor and suffering. Francis' homily at his first Holy Thursday service as Roman Catholic leader was the latest sign since his surprise election two weeks ago of his determination that the 1.2 billion-member Church should be closer to the poor.
