Panama City, Panama, Jan 26, 2019 / 15:12 pm America/Denver (CNA).
At World Youth Day, there are tens of thousands of pilgrims, thousands of priests and religious sisters, and hundreds of bishops. But there are very few honeymooners. Nadia Giudice and Alberto Celi might, in fact, be the only ones.
The pair got married Dec. 8, 2018, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, and knew immediately they would go World Youth Day Panama 2019 for their honeymoon.
The couple are part of an Argentine delegation to the event. Along with about 2,500 pilgrims from Argentina, they participated in a Mass celebrated Jan. 23 at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Panama City.
She's 25 and he's 26, and they met, unsurprisingly, at Church- an event sponsored by the Legion of Mary, in the Santa Fe province of Argentina.
“We got to know each other, became friends and later got engaged. We were married December 8, Our Lady's feast day, and this is our honeymoon,” Nadia told ACI Prensa, CNA's Spanish language sister agency.
