Miracle in Missouri: Mysterious Priest Appears at Accident Scene, Prays for Healing and Disappears Comments

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 ...

    The miracle, is that maybe some people might begin to think, that there really is an after-life, and maybe turn their lives around. Then, it could be that it helps someone like me, to see that my Catholic faith is important, and helps secure the return to the church. I had been questioning my Catholic faith..this has helped me greatly. I hope and pray that Katie is OK.

    I definitely believe in miracles. Couldn't be a Christian if I didn't. There are stories out of WWII about soldiers separated from their units, trapped behind enemy lines who were guided back by another soldier, who, it turned out, had lost his life in combat. There is also a story or two out of Vietnam that are quite similar. A Jesuit priest once a story of what happened to him in Montreal. He was at home when a stranger came to the door and said his friend was dying and needed a priest to hear his confession and give him the last rites. The priest went with him to the dying man's apartment; heard his confesion, performed the last rites, and then called the police. He told them the circumstances of his presence and described the stranger who had brought him there. The police told him this guy had been dead for over six months. Miracles are by definition things that cannot be explained. There's also the saying that a coincidence is a miracle where God decides to remain anonymous. Great story. Praise the Lord.

    They say he had glasses, I think he looks a little like Blessed Father Seelos.

    I'd like us to focus on Katie's request for prayer. Clearly, she had faith and used it. It's like the author Arlene McGannon, DMin, says - we have a role in the making of a miracle. In the Gospel's miracle stories, the person receiving the miracle stepped out in faith in some way. Katie did, too. God bless her and everyone involved! . ,

    This mysterious priest is most likely Blessed Bernhard Lichtenberg who died on his way to Dachau concentration camp and who was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1996. The sketch shown in the ABC News video matches his picture: eyes, bushy eyebrows, nose, mouth, lips, ears, and receding hairline. News reports indicate that this mysterious priest also wore glasses.

    The priest in question, miraculous or not, does nothing on his own. He simply conveys the truth, order and beauty of God. Miracle? I cannot say yay or nay to that. The beautiful thing is people trusting in our Lord to see them through. A Miracle happens every day at every mass, one that we see with our own eyes and must accept with faith. What a beautiful story! Well written article. Keep up the good work, Catholic.org!
