Pope Francis meets with thousands of engaged couples on Valentine's Day

2014-02-14

It's the first meeting of its kind: Pope Francis met with more than 10,000 engaged couples out in St. Peter's Square. 

Under the theme, 'Yes is Forever,' the Pope emphasized that engaged couples need to fully prepare for marriage. It's a commitment he said, that shouldn't be taken lightly. 

POPE FRANCIS
"So what's love really about? Is it just a feeling or something psycho physical? Of course this is part of it, but that's not enough to build something solid.” 

Engaged couples asked the Pope some questions, including how they should face the fear of making a life long commitment. From marriage to a family. 

POPE FRANCIS
"You can't base your marriage on feelings that come and go. It has to be firm and strong, like a rock-just like God's love. Through this love, a family is born.” 

The event included music, entertainment and plenty of excitement. Couples even got ring pillows for their big day. 

Faith makes a marriage stronger, said the Pope. But being married in the Church, is not just about having a long marriage, but a quality marriage.  Part of that means respecting one another and making decisions together. 

POPE FRANCIS
"You have to learn to ask. Do you agree with this? Or Do you think we should do this? Should we plan something out? How should we educate our children? Would you like to go out tonight? So, by asking questions, you become part of each others life with courtesy.” 

But part of marriage, he explained is forgiveness. One person needs to be willing to ask pardon and the other to forgive. It's not always simple, but prayer, he said, makes it a lot easier.
