Church parade past Mafia home a challenge to pope

Is there something about the mafia that non-Italians don’t know about?

I’m wondering if some of the people who took part didn’t know the route was changed and just followed along in good faith.


I spend a lot of time in Italy and in that part of the country, I’m fairly sure that everyone taking part in the procession would have been local.


We are to visit those in prison and to pray for all sinners. Our Lord is merciful.


The article I read said there were only about a “dozen or so people in the parade.”
