Jesus' Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane

1st Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary

Scriptural Rosary      

He then left to make his way as usual to the Mount of Olives, with the disciples following. When they reached the place he said to them, "Pray not to be put to the test."

Then he withdrew from them, about a stone's throw away, and knelt down and prayed. "Father," he said "if you are willing, take this cup away from me.  Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine." Then an angel appeared to him, coming from heaven to give him strength. In his anguish he prayed even more earnestly, and his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood.

When he rose from prayer he went to the disciples and found them sleeping for sheer grief. "Why are you asleep?" he said to them, "Get up and pray not to be put to the test." (Lk 22, 39-46)

Meditation: "Watch and pray." I gaze on you Jesus in your loneliness and anguish. I console you in your grief at the thought of so many souls who will reject salvation. I hear you cry and I cry out with you in my heart, "Father, not my will but yours be done."

Eternal Father, through the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we beg of you the conversion of poor sinners.
Mary, my Mother, may I always find the strength to say yes to the Father.

Our Father ... Hail Mary (x10) ... Glory be ... O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven especially those who have most need of thy mercy.

The Agony in the Garden - So we begin now to contemplate Our Lord's Passion; we do so with a mixture of sorrow but also with great gratitude for all that Jesus was prepared to undergo for love of each one of us. So let us open our hearts now to Jesus's love demonstrated so powerfully through his Passion. Let us pray for all his intentions for us and all his intentions for our parish.

And his sweat became as drops of blood running down upon the ground and rising from prayer he came to the disciples and found them sleeping.
