21st April 2014 | 0 Comments

In the garden the night before his crucifixion, Jesus was so overwhelmed with the grief and pain of what he was experiencing and what was to come that he left the disciples and moved away from them to seek solace in His Father’s presence. The tears he wept, he wept alone, and when he came […]
