Pope Francis has condemned crime and social inequality in Mexico in his homilies and talks with political leaders. On Sunday, the head of the Roman Catholic Church celebrated Mass in the crime-ridden suburb of Ecatepec, infamous for violence against women. During the rest of his five-day visit, the pope will also visit Mexico's impoverished indigenous communities in the State of Ciapas and places that struggle against drug cartels.
