prayer diary Friday 23 Jan 2015 (Day of Discipline and Self-denial)

And he appointed twelve, whom he also named apostles, to be with him, and to be sent out to proclaim the message,and to have authority to cast out demons. 
Mark 3. 14

The authority Jesus gave the apostles they passed on to their successors, as we see by the appointment of Matthias to replace Judas in Acts. This is why we can believe, as it says in the Creeds, that the Church is 'Apostolic;' and trust in the truth she proclaims on behalf of the one who established her, our Lord Jesus Christ.
