The Garden of Gethsemane

After celebrating the first Eucharist with his disciples, Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. The disciples were not much use! Even the inner circle of Peter, James, and John could not keep awake for one hour to pray with him. Jesus felt all alone.

At times we feel all alone when we pray - we feel down. But it is when we are down that God can raise us up - just as he raised Jesus to glory. The Garden of Gethsemane leads us through the cross to the Easter Garden.
