Pope Francis on marriage
"On this journey [of marriage] prayer is important, it is necessary, always: he for her, she for him and both together. Ask Jesus to multiply your love. In the prayer of the Our Father we say: 'Give us this day our daily bread.' Spouses can also learn to pray like this: 'Lord, give us this day our daily love,' for the daily love of spouses is bread, the true bread of the soul, what sustains them in going forward. … This is the prayer for engaged couples and spouses. Teach us to love one another, to will good to the other! The more you trust in him, the more your love will be 'forever', able to be renewed, and it will conquer every difficulty."

— Pope Francis, from an address on St. Valentine's Day, 2014; Pope Francis holds a rose and chocolates thrown by a person in the crowd as he arrives for an audience for engaged couples in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican.
