The Pope went on to explain the beauty of the family unit, by describing it as a community of love that's open to life and based on marriage.

In addition to choirs from different countries, a group of Colombian soldiers and police officers were also in attendance. Years ago, they were kidnapped by the country's FARC rebels. They were invited to attend the general audience, since they wanted to thank the Pope for his constant prayers.
