Pope Francis celebrated the first-ever airborne papal wedding on Thursday, marrying two flight attendants from Chile's @latamairlines at 36,000 feet during a flight from #Santiago to #Iquique.
.
Bride Paula Podest, 39, and groom Carlos Ciuffardi, 41, said "I do" after telling #PopeFrancis that they had been married in a civil service in 2010 but had been unable to follow up with a church ceremony because of the Feb. 27, 2010, earthquake that rocked #Chile.
.
"This is the sacrament that is missing in the world, the sacrament of marriage. May this motivate others to get the sacrament of marriage. I'll do it for this reason," the pope said according to Ciuffardi, who recounted the story to the journalists on the plane.

Ash plumes rise from a #🌋 on Kadovar Island in Papua New Guinea on Tuesday. Seismic activity beneath the #volcano could mean that a major eruption is imminent. Thousands of people have been evacuated from the surrounding islands off the South Pacific nation's north coast since it began erupting on Jan. 5.

"When ignorance and bigotry is allied with power, it is a dangerous force in our country. Your silence and your amnesia is complicity," said Senator @corybooker as he criticized the Homeland Security secretary for saying she can't recall President Donald #Trump using a certain vulgarity to describe African countries.
.
DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that she couldn't remember the president using the word ascribed to him.
.
#CoryBooker said the words attributed to Trump cast a shadow over millions of Americans from those countries. He said the president's language can fester and give license to bigotry and hate in the country.

A man is arrested during a protest against Pope Francis in #Santiago, #Chile, on Tuesday. The pontiff is on a three-day visit to the country, where the Vatican's handling of sex abuse cases has fueled bitter criticism.
.
#PopeFrancis begged for forgiveness Tuesday for the "irreparable damage" done to children who were raped and molested by priests, opening his visit by diving head-first into a scandal that has greatly hurt the Catholic Church's credibility here and cast a cloud over his visit.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction." — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
.
Born on Jan. 15, 1929, King's message of #nonviolence still resonates and inspires.
.
During the #civilrights movement, King directly confronted and exposed the ills of #racism, and led a movement that pressured the American government to end legalized #segregation. He spent the last year of his life condemning what he called the "triple evils" of racism, poverty and war.
.
King was assassinated April 4, 1968.

The death toll at the scene of devastating #mudslides in a Southern #California community rose to 20 Sunday as the list of those still missing shrunk to four.

Recovery crews continue to slowly make progress digging away masses of mud, boulders and toppled trees in coastal Montecito. Officials said they've removed enough debris from creek canals to prevent another potential disaster when the next rainstorm hits.
