First Sorrowful Mystery

First Sorrowful Mystery: The Agony in the Garden

Spiritual Fruit: God’s Will be done

3 fruits I see: Patience, Strength, Trust

  1. Patience with His disciples who could not stay awake
  2. Strength as He fully knew what lied ahead but had the strength and courage to face it.
  3. Trust in the Father’s will.

Then going out [Jesus] went, as was his custom, to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed him.
Luke 22:39

Our Father…

When he arrived at the place he said to them, “Pray that you may not undergo the test.”
Luke 22:40

Hail Mary …

After withdrawing about a stone’s throw from them and kneeling, he prayed, saying, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me; still, not my will but yours be done.”
Luke 22:41-42

Hail Mary …

And to strengthen him an angel from heaven appeared to him.
Luke 22:43

Hail Mary …

He was in such agony and he prayed so fervently that his sweat became like drops of blood falling on the ground.
Luke 22:44

Hail Mary …

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Matthew 26:41b

Hail Mary …

I cry aloud to God,
cry to God to hear me.
Psalm 77:2

Hail Mary …

On the day of my distress I seek the Lord;
by night my hands are raised unceasingly;
I refuse to be consoled.
Psalm 77:3

Hail Mary …

My eyes cannot close in sleep;
I am troubled and cannot speak.
Psalm 77:5

Hail Mary …

In the night I meditate in my heart;
I ponder and my spirit broods:
Psalm 77:7bc

Hail Mary …

Has God’s love ceased forever?
Has the promise failed for all ages?
Psalm 77:9

Hail Mary …

Has God forgotten mercy,
in anger withheld compassion?
Psalm 77:10

Glory Be…
