Priest from Missouri accident revealed

By Steve Almasy, CNN

(CNN) – Katie Lentz finally knows the identity of the Catholic priest who came to her side during a life-threatening accident on a two-lane Missouri highway this month.

Turns out, it was a Father Dowling mystery. The Rev. Patrick Dowling, that is.

Dowling, a priest since 1982, revealed in a comment on a story posted on the National Catholic Register that he was the man who prayed over Lentz, 19, while emergency workers treated her for injuries after an August 4 accident.

Dowling wrote in the comment, which has since been deleted: "I absolved and anointed Katie, and, at her request, prayed that her leg would not hurt. Then I stepped aside to where some rescue personnel and the pilot were waiting, and prayed the rosary silently."

    our father
    who art in heaven
    hallowed be thy name
    thy kingdom come
    thy will be done
    on earth as it is in heaven
    give us this day our daily bread
    and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us
    and don't let us be drawn into temptation
    because yours is the KINGDOM, POWER AND GLORY 4EVER AND EVER
    AMEN

    VAIN ATTEMPTS TO DISCREDIT GOD'S WORD ABOUT SALVATION

    Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (NKJV)

    Critics claim that since Jesus did not say he who is not baptized will be condemned; therefore water baptism is not essential to be saved. If a heart surgeon told you that if you have a heart transplant you will live; he would not have to explain to you that if you refuse the heart transplant you will die. Negatives are understood. If the electric power company informs you if you pay your bill the power will be turned back on; you do not have to be informed that if you do not pay your overdue bill the power will not be restored. Negatives are understood.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

    The apostle Peter did not have to say unless you repent and are baptized your sins will not be forgiven. Negatives are understood.
