Orlando & Angelica might not have come together if not for the fortuitous intervention of family and friends.
It was Orlando’s sister who encouraged him to join CatholicMatch. He was living in Atlanta at the time and liked what he saw in Colombian native Angelica. A friend of hers worked as a bridge in making the communication work and just a month later, he was on the plane to Bogota.
To Orlando the resulting journey could have been scripted in Hollywood—“I see that that all is like a movie film, full of stories, happiness…” The couple has not forgotten the source of all that happiness and gives credit to God, and to the Blessed Virgin for her intervention.
11 months after they first met, Orlando and Angelica were married in Bogota, and they honeymooned in Mexico, where they paid a visit to the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe to devote their marriage to her.
Orlando only met one person in his time in online dating, but he hit the jackpot with the one.
