(REUTERS) — Pope Francis said on Saturday it pained him to see priests driving flashy cars, and told them to pick something more “humble.”

As part of his drive to make the Catholic Church more austere and focus on the poor, Francis told young and trainee priests and nuns from around the world that having the latest smartphone or fashion accessory was not the route to happiness.

“It hurts me when I see a priest or a nun with the latest model car, you can’t do this,” he said.
