I have a girlfriend who really likes her priest. She goes as far to say that he is the holiest priest that she knows thus she believes that if she receives communion directly from him instead of a layperson or another priest that she will receive the most grace.
She also says that she really feels God’s presense around him.
She also says that the blessing he gives out are the most potent because he is the holiest.
I would have to admit, he runs a beautiful traditional ceremony and his homilys are well written and get right to the point.
But I am currently going thru the RCIA program and I guess her opinion somewhat troubles me. Is there anything to what she is saying?
I would like to think that it’s God performing these miracles through the priest no matter who he is or whether I happen to like him personally or not. Thanks for your answer.
