Before his ascension to heaven, Jesus sends his disciples with a precise order: to proclaim the gospel. Recipients are all people saround the world. Jesus gives his disciples the power to heal the sick and cast out demons. Many prodigious signs would accompany and confirm the work of Jesus' followers. The early Church (read Acts of the Apostles) witnessed the truth of this promise: "The Lord confirmed what they said about God's grace, allowing signs and wonders to be made through them" (Acts 14,3). This current of preachers is the Apostle Paul, through which God performed extraordinary miracles (cf. Acts 19:11).
