Pope Francis excommunicates mafioso

Well this is something…

Pope Francis had strong words for the mafia during his visit to the southern Italian region of Calabria on Saturday.  In his homily for the feast of Corpus Domini, he accused the mafioso of “adoration of evil and contempt for the common good.”

“Those who in their lives have taken this evil road,” the Pope said,

“…this road of evil, such as the mobsters, they are not in communion with God, they are excommunicated.”
