Truth is upon the lips of a dying man – Part 4

In Part 4 of Approaching the cross we enter the garden of Gethsamane where Jesus experiences his agony of mental torture This garden is where olives  grew and the words Gethsamane literally “ Oil press” where the olives were crushed three times to extract the oil. We read that in his anguish Jesus prayed 3 times with each prayer ending with “Not my will but your will be done”

Hope you manage to draw aside this coming Holy Week to meditate on Approaching the cross.
