In the life of the contemporary Church, there is a lack of visible miracles, bodily healings and liberations from the power of demons. In the pursuit of miracles and healings, people travel hundreds of kilometers and overcome all kinds of difficulties. Too few among them are those who can perform miracles in the name of Jesus Christ, resurrect, heal and liberate. There are those who are able to do this with the power of the evil spirit, but in the hour of truth they will hear: Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and cast out demons in Your name, and perform many miracles in Your name? And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’(Mt 7, 22-23).
Through the gift of the sacrament of Holy Baptism, each faithful receives graces from God, through which he can become an instrument for performing miracles, healings, resurrections and liberations through the action of God in him. The Holy Spirit gives these graces to the baptized faithful, to whom He wants and whichever He wants. The faithful can ask for these graces, but they cannot demand them. All the baptized cannot receive these graces, for we would not needed each other.
In the gift of the sacrament of priesthood, the graces of performing miracles, healings and liberations are given to the priests. These are mainly gifts given to the priests, who receive them by virtue of the special election of God and His grace. In the soul of the priest is reflected the image of God, precisely this anointing to a Son of God, a one of a kind resemblance, which unites the Son with the Father.
