|† The Agony in the Garden. †|
|The sequence of meditations begins with Gethsemane, where Christ experiences a moment of great anguish before the will of the Father, against which the weakness of the flesh would be tempted to rebel.
There Jesus encounters all the temptations and confronts all the sins of humanity, in order to say to the Father: “Not my will but yours be done”.
Our Father, who art in heaven hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
1. Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. (Matt 26:36-37)
2. Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” (Matt 26:38)
3. Then he withdrew from them and knelt down and prayed. (Luke 22:41)
4. He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” (Luke 22:42)
5. Then an angel appeared to him, coming from heaven to give him strength. (Luke 22:43)
6. In his of our death. Amen the hour anguish he prayed more earnestly; (Luke 22:44a)
7. “..and his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood.” (Luke 22:44b)
8. Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. (Luke 22:45)
9. Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation: the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. (Matt 26:41)
10. Rise, let us go! Here comes my betrayer! (Luke 22:46)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
O my Jesus, forgive us of our sins.
Come, Holy Spirit, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your well-beloved Spouse.
O Sacrament, Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, All praise and all thanksgiving, be every moment Thine.
