This couple traveled from El Salvador to greet the Pope. They got married on March 14, 2020 and wanted to receive the Pope's blessing, but the pandemic had prevented them.
After two years, their wish has finally come true.
Well, the truth is that we had never had the opportunity to see the Holy Father, to be able to touch him and thank him for everything and also ask him to pray for our families and for our country, El Salvador.
It was a spectacular way to start our marriage, well, two years of marriage, but we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be here.
They are currently on their honeymoon because the pandemic caused them to postpone their travels. One of their stops is Rome.
They got the tickets to greet the Pope last week and are overwhelmed that they were lucky enough to receive his blessing.
He smiled at us and gave us the blessing, which is really something special for us.
They really enjoy listening to the Pope's catechesis and how he talks about the value of the elderly.
We one hundred percent agree. We still have our grandparents, even my great-grandmother who is still alive at 104 years old. It is something that we keep very much in mind, to be able to take care of them and be together with them.
Our grandparents are very special to us, so the Pope's message resonated a lot with us.
They leave Rome happy and with a memory they will never forget.
