The new pontiff has reportedly called his local Argentine newspaper seller to tell him he would not need his papers delivered anymore.
The Most Rev Justin Welby warned of the dangers of abandoning more than 1,000 years of Christianity during his first sermon as Archbishop.
Pope Francis has promised to bring his followers hope by service at his inauguration in front of a crowd of 150,000 in Rome.
Pope Francis has warned that the Church's moral structure could "fall like a house of cards" unless it changed.
The Pope - who was elected as the 266th Pontiff in March - said the Church had become engulfed in "small-minded rules", insisting the church needed to find a new balance to "heal wounds" of its faithful.
"We have to find a new balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel," he said in his first major interview of his papacy.
Pope Francis has said the Catholic Church is too focused on preaching about abortion, gay people and contraception, in the first major interview of his papacy.
Speaking to Jesuit magazine, Pope Francis said: "We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible.
"The teaching of the Church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the Church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.''
In July, the Pope told reporters he would not judge priests for their sexual orientation in a move away from the views traditionally held by the Roman Catholic Church.
Channel 4 will broadcast the Muslim call to prayer every morning during Ramadan - the religious festival which sees millions of worshippers around the world fast for a month.
The channel's head of factual programming Ralph Lee said it had previously been nearly invisible on mainstream TV.
Writing in the Radio Times, he said that many non-Muslims saw Ramadan in terms of "the physical hardship of fasting and control" rather than as a "time of reformation and reflection".
The channel will broadcast the traditional call to prayer, delivered by muezzin Hassen Rasool, at the same time it is played in mosques around London.
Pope Francis spoke about shared hopes for social justice as he welcomed the Archbishop of Canterbury the Most Rev Justin Welby to the Vatican for the first time.
Mr Welby was enthroned as Archbishop of Canterbury, head of the Church of England, and leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion, in March, days after the inauguration of Pope Francis.
The Pope said the closeness of their inaugurations meant that they always had a "particular reason to support one another in prayer".
He added: "Among our tasks as witnesses to the love of Christ is that of giving a voice to the cry of the poor, so that they are not abandoned to the laws of an economy that seems at times to treat people as mere consumers."
Mr Welby has spoken of the inspiration he draws from Catholic social teaching.
The Archbishop said in an address after their meeting: "We must love those who seek to oppose us, and love above all those tossed aside - even whole nations - by the present crises around the world."
Mr Welby was accompanied on his visit to the Vatican by the Most Rev Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster and leader of Roman Catholics in England and Wales.
Earlier, Mr Welby, who was visiting Rome with his wife Caroline, visited the excavations beneath St Peter's Basilica to pray at the tomb of St Peter.
He also prayed before the tomb of the late Pope, Blessed John Paul II, who died in 2005.
Pope Francis praised worshippers for turning out to greet him at the Vatican in heavy rain after receiving a soaking himself.
The 76-year-old zipped around St. Peter's Square in his open-air jeep through a sea of brightly coloured umbrellas.
Looking damp and slightly weather-beaten, the pontiff told followers: "Congratulations for your courage under this rain."
The Archbishop of Westminster will bless more than 600 married couples today to celebrate marriage as "an exclusive commitment and a life-long partnership between a man and a woman".
The couples - who have almost 20,000 years of marriage between them - are all celebrating their 10th, 25th, 40th, 50th or 60th+ wedding anniversaries this year.
In his homily, Archbishop Vincent Nichols will say that marriage between man and woman is "sorely needed today" and serves society during the "hardship and deprivation today".
He will tell the couples that marriage "fulfils husband and wife and is itself fulfilled in the life of the family".
ITV News has obtained evidence that the Church of England is privately acknowledging same-sex partnerships, by conducting blessings for gay couples.
Officially the Church is against the government's gay marriage plans.
A Church report today said vicars should offer support to gay couples but not blessings.
ITV News Social Afffairs Editor Penny Marshall, reports:
In 1998 all the Bishops of the Anglican Communion agreed that we needed to listen to the experience of gay people. And over the last 15 years the Church of England has done that.
And it’s come to a view that civil partnerships are a just response to the needs of the gay community. But the question the church now has to answer is how can it then withhold the blessing of God from that which it believes to be just.
– Bishop of Liverpool James Jones
That’s a question the Church is wrestling with at the moment. The Church believes there is a difference between marriage and civil partnership, between heterosexual union and same gender intimacy.
While maintaining that difference I personally hope that the Church will find a way to offering the blessing of God on the love of gay people in a civil partnership and in a committed stable relationship.

James Jones, Bishop of Liverpool, told ITV News that he would like to see the ban on same-sex blessings overturned.
He told Social Affairs Editor Penny Marshall: "We’ve come to a time now that if we believe that civil partnerships are just then we can’t withhold the blessing of God from that which we believe to be just”.

Pope Francis was formally installed as the Bishop of Rome today in a ceremony, in which he used his arrival at St John in Lateran Basilica to honour a past pope who still remains popular in Rome.
Francis arrived a half-hour early to bless a plaque renaming a corner of the piazza outside the church after Pope John Paul II, who died in 2005.
"It is with joy that I am celebrating the Eucharist for the first time in this Lateran Basilica, the Cathedral of the Bishop of Rome. I greet all of you with great affection," Francis said in his homily.
