Mystery priest from accident revealed

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 eight days ago.

Turns out, it was a Father Dowling mystery. 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.

    I'm missing the ghost. I should be home on Thursday or Friday. Once we cross the border and we are back in the states my cell phone should work again.
