This was a May 10th news story from Catholic News Service:
This is an excerpt of that above longer news article:
Pope Francis, during a 2014 visit to Calabria, said members of the Mafia
“are not in communion with God; they are excommunicated.”
Vittorio V. Alberti, who is coordinating the working group on behalf of the dicastery, said that while the pope has said mafiosi are excommunicated and many bishops in Italy and other countries have denied public funerals to notorious members of organized crime syndicates, “we became aware that in the social teaching of church, in canon law and in the catechism there is no mention of the excommunication of mafiosi,” so the dicastery wanted to establish a group to help bishops around the world apply the teaching of the popes.
The group also will promote initiatives to help all Catholics understand that there can never be “any possible compromise” between the church and organized crime, Alberti told Vatican News.
My Comments: The last sentence above applies, I would suggest, to Catholic elected governmental official who promote crimes against humanity in the form of abortion and infanticide.
Thus, at least a censure and ideally an excommunication against Catholic governmental leaders who promote civil and religious crimes should take place and all of this codified in canon law so there is no question how individual bishops should proceed!
