Opus Dei priest blessed dying policeman

Father Fausto Bailo
The policeman recently killed by a stolen snowplow in Toronto received a conditional absolution by a passing Opus Dei priest who didn't realize the man he was blessing was a fallen police officer.

Only later did Father Fausto Bailo learn the man was Sergeant Ryan Russell and that he had died.

  1. As a wife of a police officer I pray that if my husband ever dies while on the job my husband will be given the immense blessing of having a priest come upon him and confer upon him the Holy Sacraments of our faith before his death. Our church so desperately needs more holy men to become priests!
