Imagine being on the plane with the pope then BOOM 💥 you set to marry and he conducts your nuptials for you. Well, for this couple they didn’t have to imagine it. It actually happened on the flight they worked on as flight attendants. Paula Podest Ruiz 39 and Carlos Elorriga 41 were working on a aircraft that was transporting Pope Francis from Santiago to Iquique during his three day visit to Chile.
The couple intially had a civil ceremony eight years ago and planned to have a religious ceremony at their parish in Santiago, but unfortunately for them their parish was destroyed in an earthquake that also triggered a tsunami, which killed about 500 people.
Seeing as the Pope was on the flight with them, the couple asked him to officiate the wedding and he said yes. Everything happens for a reason and there is a time and season for everything.
