Pope Francis to marry 20 couples at the Vatican

2014-09-12

On September 14th, Pope Francis will marry 20 couples from the diocese of Rome. It is a rare occasion at the Vatican. The last time that a wedding ceremony like this was celebrated was with John Paul II. 

The future newlyweds will respond to several questions that will be asked during the rite. Shortly after, each couple will be married one by one by the Pope, who has had no shortage of advice for newly married couples. 

POPE FRANCIS
October 4, 2013
"I always give this advice to newlyweds: argue about anything you want, if the plates fly, they fly. But never let the day end without making peace. Never!”

He also never forgets to give advice to newlyweds during his Wednesday General Audiences

"Communication is the most important thing."

"Always forgive each other, trust, have patience."

"What touched me the most about the audience was that the Pope said that we all sin and that we should also forgive."


The family is one of the central themes for the Pope. The ceremony falls three weeks before the start of the Extraordinary Synod of Bishops. It is the first synod convoked by Pope Francis and will reflect on the challenges of the family in the 21st century.
