2016-05-15

Lorena Munguia is 27 and Rogelio Aragon, 30. They come from Sonora, in northern Mexico and got married on April 30. When preparing their wedding, they clearly knew one thing: Their honeymoon would have to be in Rome to receive the blessing of Pope Francis.

ROGELIO ARAGON AND LORENA MUNGUÍA
"She planned it like this to be here in the audience." 
"Yes, to give us the blessing and start an even more blessed marriage."

They listened attentively to the Pope's teaching on the parable of the prodigal son. They say his message about love and the unconditional forgiveness of the Father will be very useful when they have their own children.

Then came the most exciting moment, when they greeted Pope Francis, although, they were unable to take a picture with him.

LORENA MUNGUÍA
"I was shaking, my heart pounding. His presence is very impressive, it gives great peace. And I'm very happy to be here."

They have planned a honeymoon halfway across the world. Dubai and Paris are also on their agenda, but Rome was the first destination on their list.

They have seen the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and they will take the memory of this rosary with a crucifix bought in the Vatican and blessed by the Pope. It will serve as a reminder to never forget this experience as they take the first steps along their path together.
