Scenes from the day Pope Francis married 20 couples

Read about this historic event:

I didn’t see the whole ceremony, but I did witness some of the vows from the square outside. I also got a few pictures from the behind-the-scenes, as we were standing behind the church after the Mass.

Have a beautiful Thursday! I’m so excited for the long weekend.

The brides and grooms boarded these buses after the ceremony, in the shadow of the Virgin Mary.

The pope’s crest rendered in flowers. I loved seeing this because it reminded me of seeing Pope Benedict’s crest being weeded out before the conclave!
