Pope Francis’s life is in danger from ‘ndrangheta, Italy’s most feared crime group, a leading anti-mafia judge has said.
Nicola Gratteri, a magistrate in the southern city of Reggio Calabria, near ‘ndrangheta’s heartland, has said that Pope Francis’s crackdown on financial corruption in the Vatican, has angered bosses in the notorious crime squad.
Gratteri said: “I don’t know if organised crime is in the position to do something, but it’s certainly thinking about it. It could be dangerous.”
He said Francis was “on the right path” in attempting to clean out the stables at the Vatican.
But Mr Gratteri, who has written a book on the Church’s links to ‘ndrangheta, said the mob “that has until now profited from the power and riches derived directly from the church is nervous, agitated.”
Speaking to Il Fatto Quotidiano newspaper, he added: “Pope Bergoglio is dismantling centres of economic power in the Vatican. If the bosses can stop him they won’t hesitate.”
The Vatican spokesman was not available to comment.

The Pope should not be surprised, that the mob do not want a clean man on the top. Simply because the Vatican is built on flimsy ground. The mob has been on of loyal sponsors of the Papacy, and will not accept to be thrown out of the power circles.
[ True and false prophets ] ‘Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
Do never forget, that the Vatican statehood was gifted the Papacy by Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini in 1929. The Fascists funded the Church, by transferring black money and profits of crimes, to a new statehood. In return to the Popes blessing.
There are amplified monetary scandals linked to the Vatican state. It is a law by its self, with the not punishable Pope on top. Criminal priest are taken away from national persecution, simply by hiding them inside this mini-statehood in Rome. Rapists and pedophile men escape imprisonment, because they are ordained by Roman Catholic bishops.
Shame, shame and eternal condemnations awaits them. If they do not repent.
‘All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’
Most likely, this bunch of hypocritical criminals will not repent. Simply because Jesus the Messiah do not desire to reveal to them who the Father is, lead them into repentance.
If the Pope is executed by the mob, it will not be because of the Pope’s good deeds. But as a penalty for the unlimited crimes of the Vatican. You can simply not reform a religious movement that is built on evil.
Some Roman Catholics might be able to understand, and leave these blind guides alone.
Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.’
