Pope Francis called the bishops of Chile to the Vatican to "examine the causes and consequences" of the clerical sexual abuse scandal and acknowledge personal responsibility and "the mechanisms that in some cases led to a cover up and serious omissions regarding the victims", the Vatican said.

Francis was reflecting on a biblical passage of St. Paul discerning when it was time to leave his flock in the care of others, a decision Francis said all bishops must make at some point.

Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI "opened a door" to future popes by resigning.

The Vatican said the meetings would take place in a side room off the Vatican's audience hall, not in the grandeur of the Apostolic Palace or in the intimacy of the Santa Marta hotel where Francis lives. That (expression) compelled by the Holy Spirit.

The pontiff said the apostle's great love "is Jesus Christ".

Retracing the biblical account of how Paul summoned the presbyters of the Church at Ephesus to take his leave of them, Pope Francis noted how the Apostle made an examination of his conscience, telling the Elders what he had done for the community and leaving them to judge his work.

"When I read this, I think about myself...because I am a bishop and I must take my leave and step down", Francis said.

Changing the way parishes - and their priests and involved laity - operate will not be easy, the pope said, but members of the diocese must set out to follow the Lord more closely, deal with the reality in their neighborhoods and learn how to show everyone living within the parish boundaries that they are recognized and loved.

Alfredo Mantovano and Alessandro Monteduro, president and director of ACN (Italy), said in a statement: "We have thanked the Holy Father and assured him that we will use his gift well - by bringing thousands more Christians back to Nineveh".

Asked about how he copes with his popularity, he said: "I try to think of my sins, my mistakes, so as not to think that I am somebody important".

He also revealed that he would consider retiring if he felt he could no longer perform his duties.
