THURSDAY
Jesus’s disciples got ready for the Passover meal, often referred to as the Last Supper. He shares His love for them, through both His words and His actions. During the meal, Jesus told the disciples that one of them would betray Him. Then, to help them remember Him, He gave them the sacrament for the first time. Then together they depart to a quiet garden called Gethsemane. But what happens next, Jesus must endure alone. Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane to suffer for our sins and to pray to God. He prays and is overcome with unfathomable agony. This is the beginning of the culmination of Jesus Christ’s sacred mission. He takes upon Himself the sins of the world. Even though He lived a perfect life, Jesus Christ paid the price for all our sins. It was a sacrifice only He could make, and He did so willingly – for you, for all of us. People then came with swords and arrested Him. The disciples ran away in fear.*
