By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Pope Francis has launched a fresh onslaught on the mafia.
The pontiff on Sunday, Italy’s day of remembrance for victims of the mob, described the Italian mob as “organisations of sin” who have exploited the coronavirus pandemic.
“Mafias are present in various parts of the world and, exploiting the pandemic, have enriched themselves through corruption,” the pontiff said after his weekly Sunday Angelus address.
“These organisations of sin, mafia structures, exchange faith for idolatry, contrary to the Gospel of Christ. Today we remember all the victims and renew our commitment against mafias.”
