UPDATE: Mystery priest comes forward. Nope, he’s not an “angel” after all.
At the scene of a horrible car accident on a blocked off road, a woman asked for someone to pray with her — and then, all of a sudden, a mysterious man dressed in priest attire stepped forward out of nowhere and said, “I will.” The priest used Holy anointing oil on three people as they prayed together and then vanished.
USA Today writes:
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.
Even odder, the black-garbed priest does not appear in any of the nearly 70 photos of the scene of the accident in which a 19-year-old girl almost died. No one knows the priest and he vanished without a word, said Raymond Reed, fire chief of New London, Mo.
