A car accident happened in Missouri recently, and a pretty miraculous story has come from this tragic event. A head on collision occurred causing Katie Lentz to be crushed and trapped inside the vehicle. Katie was obviously distraught, but she managed to keep herself calm and asked her rescuers to pray aloud with her. Not long after this, a priest approached the rescuers and Katie at the scene. The priest prayed with them. Everyone felt a sense of calmness from the prayer and the priest’s presence.
Not long after the rescue team successfully freed Katie from the car. She has gone through several surgeries and is now on her way to recovery. She wanted to find the priest who came to the accident scene to thank him but no one knows him and did not know where to look for him. It was then that they realized that the priest might have been an angel in disguise, there to save her and guide her rescuers. Miracles happen all around us during life, sometimes we just aren’t paying attention.
“About an hour into the rescue, Katie asked rescue workers to pray out loud with her. That’s when a priest appeared out of nowhere.”He came up and approached the patient, and offered a prayer. It was a Catholic priest who had anointing oil with him. A sense of calmness came over her, and it did us as well. I can’t be for certain how it was said, but myself and another firefighter, we very plainly heard that we should remain calm, that our tools would now work and that we would get her out of that vehicle.Where did this guy come from? We’re looking for the priest and so far, no one has seen him. Whether it was a priest as an angel or an actual angel, he was an angel to all those and to Katie. We would like to find this gentleman and be able to thank him,” “
