Pope Francis has scored plenty of magazine covers but now he has got a magazine all to himself.

The Mondadori publishing house, which lists the popular celebrity gossip rag Chi among its titles, is launching a new magazine entirely devoted to the weekly doings, sayings, gestures and activities of the 265th Successor of Peter.

My Pope, at 50 cents (41p) a pop, will each Wednesday include a free pull-out poster with one of Francis' more memorable quotes from the previous seven days.

Editor Aldo Vitali said Pope Francis' election a year ago has generated new interest in the papacy, and moral and ethical themes that will be highlighted in the publication.

Mondadori is part of ex-Premier Silvio Berlusconi's media empire and is headed by his daughter, Marina Berlusconi.
