Jesus and the Angel in Gethsemane

Jesus and the Angel in Gethsemane

When we believe that we are alone with our suffering, we need only remember the presence of God’s angels about us. When we search for images of angels on the internet we are met with a wide range. Today as we choose those that speak to us and read about Jesus in Gethsemane we remember . . . we are never alone.

We might choose another versions of this part of Jesus’ story. Mark 14:32-42 and Matthew 26:36-46.

This week we pause to read scripture and to pray and reflect at noon, keeping those in The Noontime Circle in mid-day prayer.

Wishing you grace and love and peace in Christ Jesus.
