By Philip Pullella and Yury Garcia GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador (Reuters) - Pope Francis used his first Mass in Ecuador on Monday to ask for support in his efforts to reach out to Catholics who feel shunned by the Church when the world's bishops gather at the Vatican in October. Speaking to 800,000 people on the first leg of his "homecoming" tour of South America, the 78-year-old pope weaved his homily around the theme of the family, which will be the subject of the month-long synod at the Vatican. The meeting is expected to discuss ways to reach out to Catholics who have divorced and remarried outside the Church.
