All ministers, priests or religious have healing powers. Most don’t have the faith that is needed to use it. There are two provisos: our saintly priest or religious must be born again and he must be following Jesus’ Great Commission: (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world … In My name they will drive out demons; … they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” Mark 16:15,17,18
“As you sent Me into the world, I have sent them into the world.” John 17:18
“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:27
Each part of the body performs it own distinct function, which makes it indispensable and wholly dependent on every other part. In the same way, the whole ministry of the Church is only the sum total of all its members. The clergy have a special role of leadership, but other believers are equally joined in the Church. This interdependence means that we need to be sensitive to part which each one of us has to play. That means that you will not be only doing your own thing.
“All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and He distributes them to each one, just as He determines.” 1 Corinthians 12:11
Healing was essential to the ministry of Jesus because healing offered indisputable evidence that He is the Christ of God: ”Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples … these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” John 21:30-31
