The global leader of the Roman Catholic church, Pope Francis, has requested that Catholic priests be given the right to get married.

Pope Francis has requested that Roman Catholic priests be given the right to get married, Yahoo News UK reports.

The request applies to priests in Brazil, and is on the agenda for an upcoming synod (church council) in the Amazon region.

The controversial move would address the critical shortage of men joining the priesthood – but is likely to drive divisions through the church by enraging conservative factions.

A small number of married Roman Catholic priests already exist, including previously married Anglican vicars who have joined the church.
