Pope Paul VI Beatified

 The tapestry of the newly-beatified Pope Paul VI is hanged on a balcony of St. Peter's basilica during the mass held by Pope Francis on the occasion of the end of the extraordinary synod of the family and the beatification of Paul VI in St Peter's Square, Vatican City, 19 October 2014. Paul VI, who was pope from 1963 until his death in 1978, got the go-ahead for beatification in May when the Vatican's Congregation for the Causes of Saints said that he performed a miracle by intervening in the inexplicable healing of an unborn child.
