Pope performs first marriage on flight

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE: At 36,000 feet, it was a marriage almost made in heaven. In the first such ceremony on a papal flight, Pope Francis performed a wedding for a steward and stewardess while flying between two Chilean cities on Thursday.
Paula Podest Ruiz, 39, and Carlos Ciuffardi Elorriga, 41, who had a civil union eight years ago, told the pope that a religious ceremony that was to follow was cancelled after their parish church in Santiago was heavily damaged.
