I knew the day that Fr. Tozzi was being filmed, but was not planning on being a part of it, after all I had some work to do.
Towards the end of the day, my cell phone rings by Michael Walsh, who filmed and produced the videos for us: "You didn't warn me about this!"
That was a real episode. Michael was interviewing Fr. Tozzi when the call came in that a priest was needed to anoint someone who was in the active stages of dieing. Oils in the car, off they went.
Not wanting to intrude with a camera into a very private moment in life, the question was asked, the point explained: 'This is for a video for the priesthood, but only with your expressed permission.'
They were very generous in response: 'If mom knew that her last act on earth would be used to promote the priesthood, she would be so very pleased.'
With that, they gave the permission and the camera stayed back, but rolled.
My sincere thanks to the family, my prayers for Mrs. Conte's soul, that she may be rewarded for allowing this to happen.
