“Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not undergo the test.” This disappointing scene and the others that follow portray human failures to look first to God and not to ourselves. The passion and death of Jesus show humanity reaching rock bottom. We need to remember our own rock bottom in our prayer. Otherwise, we will not appreciate Easter Sunday when the Risen Christ Jesus raises us up as well.
This Holy Week, what do you need to recall in prayer about your part in the Crucifixion?
