Angels Among Us

My brother sent me a link this morning about a mysterious priest who appeared, seemingly out of nowhere. You can read the story here:

It reminded me of an event that happened to my husband when he was twenty. He was driving through downtown Opp, Alabama when a man stepped in front of him. The man fell on the hood of the car and then rolled to the pavement. By the time Carl reached the man, he was face down in a pool of blood as if dead. A crowd gathered and paramedics arrived. Carl moved back and watched helplessly.

A middle-aged lady with black hair walked up to my shaking husband and wrapped an arm around him. “He’s all right,” she said. A peace descended and later Carl searched in vain for the woman to thank her for her comforting words and presence. When he asked around, no one in this small town recognized the description. No one had seen her, or anyone else, talking to Carl. All agreed that Carl had been standing alone.

Later, a trip to the hospital revealed the man had torn ligaments in his hand but otherwise was fine. The blood had come from hitting his nose on the pavement, and the blow had also temporarily knocked him out.

So, who was the priest in the article? Who was the woman? What do you believe?

Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? ~Hebrews 1:14

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Tommie. True...lots of unexplained things.

  2. As an update:

    Still, a good story--at the time she asked for prayer, the priest appears. Good timing!
