Meant to be or just luck? Couple gets married in Rome after 'coin promise'

2014-05-18

This couple decided to head out to the Vatican the day after their wedding. Katherine and Andrew are from Ireland, but they got married in Rome, because it's here that their love story began six years ago

"I was here in 1998 with a group. I came as part of World Missionary Conference. I left a coin, I planted a coin here and I said this is for when I return.” 

Just like in the movies, she came back to the Eternal City and what happened next, forever changed her life. 

"I was hoping to meet someone then. For many many years I prayed and prayed and three years ago I met Andrew. And we do believe it was God who to put us together.” 

Katherine met Andrew at a conference on a book on John Paul II. Interestingly, the topic of the book was marriage

To be so close to the Pope the day after their wedding, is something they'll never forget. 

"I didn't know I'll be returning in 2014 and that I would be married. So God was planning it all along the time. It was a lovely journey.”

So, the newlyweds have decided to stay in Rome a bit longer to enjoy the Eternal City before heading back home. As part of their visit, they're going to look for the coin that in a way, started their whole love story.
