    On November 1, 2020, after the Holy Father recited the Angelus, he continued his address, bringing up Blessed Michael McGivney’s beatification ceremony the day before:

    Dear brothers and sisters, yesterday, in Hartford, in the United States of America, Michael McGivney, diocesan priest, founder of the Knights of Columbus, was declared Blessed. Dedicated to evangelization, he did everything possible to provide for the needs of the needy, promoting mutual aid. May his example be an impetus for us to witness ever more to the Gospel of charity. Let us give a round of applause to this new Blessed!
