Paul VI will be beatified on 19 October in the Vatican at the end of the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod dedicated to the family.

Four other decrees were also promulgated at the audience: the beatification of Venetian priest Luigi Caburlotto (1817-1897) and the heroic virtues of three Servants of God, Giacomo Abbondo (1720-1788), Jacinto Alegre Pujals (1874-1930) and Caroline Barbe Colchen Carré de Malberg (1829-1891).
