He summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal [the sick].” – Luke 9:1-2

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is common for a bishop during liturgies to wear the “miter,” or ceremonial headdress. The miter is a symbol of authority. It is important to note that this authority does not mean, “I am your boss, and you do what I say.” It is a much better authority than that. This is the authority that Jesus gave the apostles and the Church (that is us!) to act in his name.
