Pope says children are a blessing, not having children is 'selfish'

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Pope Francis says having children is a blessing, not a burden.

He told parishioners at his weekly audience today that it's wrong to look at having children as a burden.

The Pope said families wanting multiple children should not be seen as being irresponsible and warned that not having children was a "selfish" choice.

The pope also urged children to honor their parents and help make the world a better place.
