Pope Francis has celebrated Mass in one of Mexico’s poorest and most dangerous cities: Ecatepec where murders, kidnappings and extortion are rife.

Francis had a clear message: “With the devil, there is no dialogue.”

The pontiff denounced deep inequality and decried the country’s rich and corrupt elite.

“That wealth which tastes of pain, bitterness and suffering,” said Pope Francis. “This is the bread that a corrupt family or society gives its own children.”

The pontiff earlier flew over the pyramids of the ancient city of Teotihuacan.

For the remainder of his five-day trip to Mexico, Francis planned to visit some of the poorest and most violent corners of the country.
