While holding out his rosary, Rev. Desmond Ohankwere credits “divine intervention” for saving his life after four men assaulted him at gunpoint outside his home near St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church in Houston.
The Associated Press reported that the four men involved first stole an SUV from a gas station while the owner filled it with fuel. They then encountered the priest walking and praying the rosary in a nearby Catholic Church parking lot after the SUV ran out of gas.
