We can never sufficiently thank Him for so completely showing us in the Garden that He was a man by praying to escape the storm.
COMMENT: Jesus showed us His humanity on many different occasions, but nowhere more movingly than during the Agony in the Garden. As Fr Doyle tells us in today’s quote, there is nothing wrong with asking God to relieve our sufferings and to spare us particular trials, so long as we are also ultimately resigned to God’s holy will.
Let us pray for God’s protection in all of our difficulties, and in particular for those who suffer from worry about the future. The uncertain times we live in are a great source of anxiety for many, especially due to the rise of terrorism and violence. Let us look to our Master, and confide whatever worries us to Him.
