A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! The mystery priest who blessed and prayed with Katie Lentz has stepped forward.
This is a follow on to my earlier post concerning Katie Lentz, a 19-year old Missouri girl who barely survived a horrific car crash last Sunday morning. The media has been reporting that a mysterious priest approached the scene and asked to bless and pray with Katie during which time another crew with badly needed equipment arrived and she was freed. The priest’s identity is a mystery, and nobody knows where he came from or where he disappeared to. Some people are calling him an angel because of the calm he brought to everyone and how sure he sounded that Katie she would be saved. Katie did indeed survive, but she is now in serious condition in a nearby hospital with a large number of broken bones, a lacerated liver, and a ruptured spleen. Her legs are reported to be severely injured, and she underwent a 6-1/2 hour surgery to repair them. Doctors are telling her mother she should make a full recovery, but it will take time and she is still in need of everyone’s prayers.
Below is an interview with the policeman who responded to the call and was the first responder on the scene. He calls the accident that severely injured Katie the most horrific he has ever seen in 27-years of police work in which a person survived. He also spoke and shook hands with the priest who he described as about 60-years old with an olive complexion, and speaking in a heavy accent.
Some people are saying the unknown priest resembles the late American actor Walter Matthau, but others also see a resemblance to the late Italian priest Padre Pio who died 45-years ago, and has since been declared a saint in the Roman Catholic church. The most interesting things about him are differing descriptions from multiple witnesses who saw the same priest, and his absence from the dozens of accident scene photos taken that morning.
