A one-pointer

Jesus healsHere’s a one-point homily on the Gospel reading from today’s Divine Liturgy:

Jesus said, “This kind does not come out but by prayer and fasting.” Then he performed the miracle without going away to pray and fast. Because that’s what he did regularly anyhow; prayer and fasting were his normal routine. If power and purity elude us, then we should be doing likewise.
