Brushing aside worries about his health and safety, Pope Francis traveled to the heart of mob territory Saturday to comfort the family of a 3-year-old boy gunned down in a January shootout and declared that all mobsters are automatically excommunicated from the Catholic Church. During his homily at an outdoor Mass, Francis denounced the `Ndrangheta for what he called its `’adoration of evil and contempt for the common good. The pope warned “Those who go down the evil path, as the Mafiosi do, are not in communion with God. They are excommunicated.”
