Pope Francis offered a special Valentine's Day seminar for 25,000 engaged people at St. Peter’s Square today, delivering both love tips and bad jokes. The magic words in a relationship, he said, are "Please, thanks, and sorry."
"Never finish the day without making peace!" he added, according to an AP translation. "Because if you end the day without making peace, what you have inside becomes hard and cold and it becomes harder to make peace the following day."
And while urging young people to commit, he warned, "The perfect family doesn't exist, nor the perfect husband nor wife. Let's not even talk about the perfect mother-in-law!" This guy.
Dear young people, don’t be afraid to marry. A faithful and fruitful marriage will bring you happiness.— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) February 14, 2014
