'Angel' priest appears at accident scene

A mysterious priest that turned up at the scene of an accident in Missouri is being hailed as an 'angel'.

The accident involved a collision between two cars, one of which being driven by student Katie Lentz. Her car was partially crushed and emergency workers had been struggling to cut through the twisted wreck to free her when a black-garbed priest appeared on the scene and said he would pray for her. Nobody seemed to know who the priest was nor where he had come from, he wasn't from any of the local churches.

Shortly afterwards everything seemed to start going right - emergency workers succeeded in rescuing Lentz from the wreck and she was rushed to hospital. Turning to thank the priest for his support, rescue team members discovered that he had completely disappeared, never to be seen again. Even stranger was the fact that despite dozens of photographs being taken at the scene covering all aspects of the rescue, the mysterious priest did not appear in a single one of them.

"Emergency workers and community members in eastern Missouri are not sure what to make of a mystery priest who showed up at a critical accident scene Sunday morning and whose prayer seemed to change life-threatening events for the positive."

From the link: I wonder what Father dowling means by "that did not come from my lips, though two people heard it"? Is he saying that they are lying, or what?

Once again, another lesson is deliverd in how first hand accounts and eyewitnesses are completelly unreliable. "The road was closed for miles" "There's no way he could not appear in the photos" "He disappeared" yada yada Your Tuesday morning "Occam Check" - I should trademark that.

Give the priest some credit for coming forward.

Exactly - just like the ancient astronauts, reverse engineered ET tech, etc. arguments - give human beings actual credit for doing something.

That is an interesting point. No, I don't think he's saying in anyway they are lying. I remember what they heard being among the statements. However, I did notice even then that they seemed to qualify their statements with something like, they weren't sure where the words came from at the time. If you want go back and take a look at what they said. Even when I first read it I had the opinion they were saying that they were not sure if they had physically heard the words or mentally heard them but they both felt they "heard" exactly the same words at exactly the same tim...

Beautiful story. But no angel, I'm afraid. Just a caring human being who stopped by the roadside to help a young woman in serious trouble.
