Pope's quotes: Defending marriage

A quote from Pope Francis:

"Today there is a world war to destroy marriage. Today there are ideological colonisations which destroy, not with weapons, but with ideas. Therefore, there is a need to defend ourselves from ideological colonisations. If there are problems, make peace as soon as possible, before the day ends, and don't forget the three words: 'may I', 'thank you', 'forgive me'."
