Notes & Transcripts

When a priest mysteriously showed up at an accident scene in Missouri, his prayers seemed to change life-threatening events, many people thought the mystery man might have been an angel. Emergency workers were not able to find the priest in any of the pictures taken at the accident scene. Later the priest saw a newspaper article and acknowledged that he was the man who prayed with 19-year-old Katie Lentz at the scene. Father Patrick Dowling offered a humble assessment of the situation, explaining that he saw many people praying for Katie. He thought he might have been an answer to some of those prayers, when he stopped by the scene, but refused to take much credit for anything else. He said he anointed the young woman and prayed that her leg would not hurt. Even though the mystery was solved, New London Missouri Fire chief Raymond reed said he thought it was still a miracle. Reed said, “I would say whether it was an angel that was sent to us in the form of a priest or a priest that became our angel, I don’t know. Either way, I’m good with it.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
