SANTIAGO, Chile - Pope Francis accused victims of Chile's most notorious pedophile of slander Thursday, an astonishing end to a visit meant to help heal the wounds of a sex abuse scandal that has cost the Catholic Church its credibility in the country.

In trying to reconcile his church with its followers over decades of sexual abuse, the pope has embraced a "zero tolerance" policy.

Bride Paula Podest, 39, and groom Carlos Ciuffardi, 41, said "I do" after telling Francis 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 February 27, 2010, natural disaster that rocked Chile.

He asked the couple: "Do you want me to marry you?"

Francis said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up Karadima's crimes, accusations of complicity by the victims of against Barros are "all calumny". Then the pope said, "Are YOU sure?' I told him, 'Yes!"

Speaking with reporters, Ciufardi, the groom, said, "He held our hands, blessed the rings, and he married us in the name of God".

Pope Francis has been busy on his first official visit to Chile.

House passes spending bill to keep government open. Senate to vote soon
Trump weighed in earlier in the day from Pennsylvania, where he flew to help a GOP candidate in a special congressional election. President Donald Trump says a children's health insurance program shouldn't be part of a short-term budget deal.

"The day they bring me proof against Bishop Barros, then I will speak", the pope said in response to a journalist's question about the 61-year-old. "Hopefully, this will motivate couples around the world to get married.'" . "I'll do it for this reason".

Podest and Ciuffardi, who have two children, 6-year-old Rafaela and 3-year-old Isabela, said they plan to take a "mini-honeymoon" and return to Santiago on Friday.

According to Catholic News Service, the Pope asked the couple if they were willing to get married on the plane and they answered yes.

In the northern border region of Iquique - which he said was "the land of dreams" for so many - the pope hit out at human traffickers and others who seek to take advantage of helpless immigrants. "That is not an easy thing to do, so it is historic", said Jose Trinidad, 69, who travelled from Lima, the Peruvian capital.

"And that's why the marriage works", Ciuffardi said.

Ahead of the pope's visit, the US-based NGO Bishop Accountability said nearly 80 members of the Roman Catholic clergy had been accused of sexually abusing children in Chile since 2000.

Patricio Navia, political science professor at Diego Portales University in Santiago, said the comment will likely erase any good will the pope had won over the issue.
