Meet Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane
The harder it is to carry a cross, the more we need to know how to turn them into resurrections. But even the easiest of crosses can be used to draw us closer to Christ. Come and meet him in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Next: Part 2 >>
The crosses we’re carrying include unhealthy relationships, broken marriages, disunity in the family, the greed and narcissism and moral relativism around us, standing up for the truth, being misunderstood and misjudged, being falsely accused, abuses by an ex-spouse, and the unjustified anger of a son or daughter.
Many of our crosses are concerns about others: adult children who have separated themselves from the Church and even from Christ, grandchildren who are being raised without the Faith, trials our loved ones are sufferings, and a son’s or daughter’s temptations into same-sex attraction.
There are personal crosses, too: disease, the search for love, the pain of grief and loss, unforgiveness, healing from past hardships, caregiving, bad job situations, uncertainty about God’s will for important life decisions, lack of self confidence, low self esteem and being unable to appreciate one’s own value, as well as trying to overcome stubborn sins such as lust, gossiping, judging others, pride, selfishness.
