Power of Prayer and Fasting:

"Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, 'Why could we not drive it out?  And He said to them, 'Because of the littleness of your faith... But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting."
- Matthew 17:19-20a, 21

The Mount 27 is a pretty cool opportunity. Not many people have the chance or find the time to read the whole New Testament straight through; usually we only hear bits and pieces of it during the Liturgy of the Word. It is definitely cool to read it continuously and see the natural flow that St. Paul and the Gospel writers intended for. Now if only I could keep up with the readings so as not to fall behind!
