I'm asking this for my nephew in-law. His boss is a Catholic. She told him that a priest's power to heal is strongest during the first year after ordination. I've never heard of such a thing and I don't believe it's true. Supposedly the boss lady is a very intelligent woman, so I'm wondering if there is some fact or at least a pious tale behind her belief.

The power of the Sacraments don't change/diminish over time.

His non sacramental power does not reduce either.

Sounds weird. Never heard of it. It's wrong.

Sounds like someone's leg is being pulled.

I think it refers to the well known healing power of coffee...when new priests brew the parish coffee on Sunday morning, they always brew it really, really strong, so strong that when you pour yourself a cup of coffee the cup is at risk of walking away on its own, it is only after all the old fuddy duddies start to complain that they start to water the coffee down to the point where it is weaker than 3.2 beer the way everyone else in the parish does.

As good an explanation as any.

Yep. The coffee thing makes perfect sense.

Maybe she's confusing what she thinks it is with the plenary indulgence in attending a newly ordained priest's first public Mass.

Linsou, that's the only thing I've seen so far that could possibly be the "culprit". Thanks!
