Pope Francis' hosts perform rituals for his protection

Pope Francis' hosts perform rituals for his protection

In conversation with the couple, he learned that they were married in a civil ceremony, but their plans for a church service in 2010 were disrupted because of an quake.

The Latam plane carrying Pope Francis has just landed at Callao's Air Group N°8 for a 4-day visit to Peru.

According to journalists traveling with the Pope, the couple - Paula Podest and Carlos Ciuffardi - went to the Pope during the January 18 flight to ask for his blessing. The pair had planned to Wednesday in a lavish church ceremony on February 27, 2010, but, as CBS explained, a massive natural disaster struck the region and their church collapsed on their wedding day.

Pope Francis has performed his first ever airborne wedding after two flight attendants tied the knot while aboard a domestic flight in Chile.

The pope also gave the couple an impromptu wedding gift: a white rosary for the bride and a black one for the groom. Francis motioned for them to sit next to him for the photo and asked if they had been married in the church.

'Are you sure you want to marry us?'

She said she and Ciuffardi also told the pope that when they first started dating, she was his boss at LATAM.

Referring to the rings, Francis jested that they shouldn't be too tight, because "they would be a torture", nor too loose, or else they might risk misplacing them.

To continue this joyful atmosphere, we can take a lesson from the actions of Mary at the wedding feast, he said.

Earlier this week Francis met and wept with survivors of abuse and asked Chileans for forgiveness for the actions of some priests.

Tens of thousands of people were waiting for the pope in Iquique, where he was scheduled to celebrate an open-air Mass on the shores of the Pacific. "It's Chile that has to respond, especially politicians".

The incident comes hours before Francis is set to arrive in Peru later Thursday from neighbouring Chile.

"The pope could speak, could mediate in Araucania region about the situation of the Mapuche who are being incarcerated", Linconao told The Associated Press.
