Pino Puglisi Beatified

Yesterday, at a ceremony in Palermo attended by 80 thousand people, a priest murdered by the Mafia twenty years ago was beatified as a martyr.

Our article about Fr Pino Puglisi talks about his life, and the activities that made him a Mafia target.

Incredible as it may seem, there are still many people, including those who head certain "ethnic" Italian organizations outside Italy, who would have you believe that the Mafia doesn't really exist.  That's ridiculous.

The Catholic Church now recognizes the existence of this criminal organization, and Fr. Puglisi is on the path to sainthood.
