It happened on January 18th. Pope Francis was flying on a civilian airliner from Santiago, Chile, to the northern coastal town of Iquiqe to celebrate an open-air mass. He was introduced to other passengers on the plane, including Carlos Cluffardi Elorriga, 41, and his wife Paula Podest Ruiz, 39, who both are flight attendants for Latam, the Latin American airline based in Chile.

They asked if the Pope would bless their marriage. Instead, he offered to perform their religious marriage and they agreed immediately. The couple told journalists on the plane, "It was very moving. We can't believe the Pope married us. Marriage works!"
