Jesus Prays in the Garden of Gethsemane
Throughout the world, many are celebrating Mardi Gras . . . while we observe a special Passionist memorial in our Liturgy--Jesus at Prayer in Gethsemane. Gethsemane . . . the curtain which opens the beginning of Christ's Hour of Suffering. So . . . we seek to pray beside Him, in spirit, and with the Angel, offer Him our presence of love and compassion.
"My Heart is
nearly broken with sorrow . . ."
In prayer, I seem to see
the Lord Jesus
on the ground before me.
. . . "Stay here and
keep watch with Me."
Though centuries have past . . .
His request has
touched my heart,
So I choose to remain
To bring comfort
to His Broken Heart
and compassion to His Pain
