Meeting God Early

Wow, they're a tough crowd in Italy.

An 86 year old man suffered a fatal heart attack during an early-morning service at the Church of the White Madonna in Trento, and after calling an ambulance (and respectfully covering the body), the Father continued on with his service.

"What could I have done? The Holy Mass has to be celebrated. It is not right to make an exception for one individual" he later asked.

(It is against Italian law to move a body without the authorisation of a local magistrate.)
