VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis has asked reporters who don't pray to at least send him "good vibrations".

The pope always asks people to pray for him but he put a new twist on the request as he was leaving a meeting with Argentine President Cristina Fernandez on Sunday.

He turned to reporters and joked in Spanish: "Pray for me, and if some of you can't pray because you are not believers, send me good vibrations".
