Pope Francis: Ban on women becoming priests will never be changed

00:35

In response to a question from a reporter, Pope Francis said that he believes that the Roman Catholic Church’s ban on women from becoming priests will never be changed. He referenced a letter written by Pope John Paul II in 1994 saying ordaining women was not possible because Jesus chose only men as his apostles.
