Pondering the Agony in the Garden

Let’s go deeper in pondering Jesus’ Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane. What mental and emotional struggle might Jesus have been suffering? Why was it important to His mission?

Luke 2:19 tells us “And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.” Some Bible versions say, “She pondered.” The original Greek word for ponder is sumballo which means to “throw together.” Think of these meditations as a throwing together of thoughts, ideas, and reflections related to a particular topic. They are not meant to be teachings, but rather invitations and perhaps helps to reflecting more deeply in your own heart. We are delighted that you have chosen to join us today!

This podcast is provided for you by Magnificat, A Ministry to Catholic Women.We pray that today may be a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this podcast.

Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this sharing will help us better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness.

Join with us as welcome together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me. Holy is His Name!
