(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 31 – Pope Francis has blasted mafiosi as
the “Herods of our time” in the preface to a new book about
Rosario Angelo Livatino, a young judge who was slain by the
Stidda.mafia in 1990 and will be beatified in Agrigento on May
9.
    The Argentine pontiff said mobsters “do not look innocence in
the face and even enlist adolescents to make them ruthless
killers on missions of death”.
    He also said mafiosi deny the Gospel while at the same “flaunting” their faith. (ANSA).
