I concur. I salute the preachers (and laymen) of any earthly Christian worship community who are willing to stick their spiritual necks out and admonish and appeal to dangerous practitioners of evil to come to the Lord and get right.

... and in this case, Roman Catholics are the Christian community closest to the situation. It’s happening in their back yard. If they wouldn’t step up to the plate then the Lord would raise another witness... fortunately Pope Francis seems to be taking this matter seriously in the Lord.

I concur in your prayers that these Mafioso will do so.
