CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis visited two Sicilian dioceses on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the martyrdom of Blessed Pino Puglisi (1937-1993). During his visit, the Pope urged the Church to heal society’s wounds with a new evangelization, preached that “God and the Mafia are not compatible,” encouraged priests and religious to bear witness to Christ with deeds, and told youth not to give up hope.
