Pope Francis urged people to have greater empathy towards family and friends with problems in his Christmas Eve mass, saying the world "needs tenderness" and warmth.

The short address laden with Gospel references was a far cry from his barbed Christmas speech to cardinals, bishops and priests.

In an unprecedented outburst, the 78-year old lambasted the Vatican's bureaucracy, listing 15 "ailments" within the Church, including lust for power and "spiritual Alzheimer's", which he hoped to see cured in the new year.
