A picture of late magistrate Rosario Livatino is displayed during a beatification ceremony at the cathedral of Agrigento, southern Italy, Sunday, May 9, 2021. A magistrate slain by mobsters in Sicily and praised by two popes has been beatified by the Roman Catholic church on May 9 in the last formal step before possible sainthood. Rosario Livatino was gunned down on a Sicilian highway outside Agrigento as he drove to work in 1990. Three years later, during a pilgrimage to Sicily, Pope John Paul II hailed him a “martyr of justice and, indirectly, of the Christian faith.” (Fabio Peonia/LaPresse via AP)
