Jesus... The Agony in the Garden

I was given a prayer card by our Parish Priest some years ago which, to my shame, I have no recollection of ever having read even though I saw it often, due to my using it as a book mark in my Divine Office. This Lent I did read it possibly for the first time and as requested by Our Lord to St. Pio, added the devotion to my daily prayers (though my prayers sadly aren’t always daily). I wanted to share this with you during this troubled time and it seemed most appropriate to do so on this Holy Night. The night Jesus began his most terrible and brutal suffering for our salvation. A revelation of Love Incomprehensible, a baptism of fire that also His Precious Bride, longs for and is surely destined to endure.

I have placed it on the front page temporarily only for this weekend in the hope it helps us all just take a breath for a moment. I do wish you a holy, prayerful and peaceful Easter. And may we each, by God’s abundant Grace, experience the supreme joy of Our Lords Victory over sin and rejoice at His Resurrection.

THE PRAYERS:

O Jesus, through the abundance of Your love, and in order to overcome our hardheartedness, You pour out torrents of Your Graces over those who reflect on Your most Sacred Sorrow in the Garden of Gethsemane, and who spread devotion to it. I pray to You, move my soul and my heart to think often, at least once a day, of Your most bitter Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, in order to communicate with You and to be united to You as closely as possible.

O blessed Jesus, You who carried the immense burden of our sins that night, and atoned for them fully; grant me the most perfect gift of complete repentant love over my numerous sins, for which You did sweat blood.

O blessed Jesus, for the sake of Your most bitter struggle in the Garden of Gethsemane, grant me final victory over all temptations, especially over those to which I am most subjected.

O suffering Jesus, for the sake of Your inscrutable and indescribable agonies, during that night of betrayal, and of Your bitterest anguish of mind, enlighten me, so that I may recognize and fulfill Your will; grant that I may ponder continually on Your heart-wrenching struggle and on how You did emerge victoriously, in order to fulfill not Your will, but the will of Your Father.

Be Thou blessed, O Jesus, for all Your sighs on that Holy night; and for the tears which You did shed for us.

Be Thou blessed, O Jesus, for Your sweat of Blood and the terrible agony, which You did suffer lovingly in coldest abandonment and in inscrutable loneliness.

Be Thou blessed, O sweetest Jesus, filled with immeasurable bitterness, for the prayer which flowed in trembling agony from Your Heart, so truly human and divine.

Eternal Father, I offer Thee all the past, present, and future Masses together with the Blood of Christ shed in agony in the Garden of Sorrow at Gethsemane.

Most Holy Trinity, grant that the knowledge, and thereby the love, of the agony of Jesus on the Mount of Olives will spread throughout the whole world.

Grant, O Jesus, that all who look lovingly at You on the Cross, will also remember Your immense Suffering on the Mount of Olives that they will follow Your example, learn to pray devoutly and fight victoriously, so that, one day, they may be able to Glorify You eternally in Heaven. Amen.

PROMISES TO DEVOTEES OF THE AGONY OF JESUS ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES…AS GIVEN TO ST. PIO FROM OUR LORD JESUS.

JESUS SPEAKS

Again and again calls of My Love flow from My Heart. They fill the souls in which the fire of love lights up and sometimes even sets ablaze the heart. It is this, the Voice of My Heart, which travels and also reaches those who do not want to hear Me, and who, themselves, do not notice Me. However, inside of them I speak to all, and My Voice will speak to all, because i love them all.

He, who knows the Commandment of Love, is not surprised that I cannot help knocking at the door of those who resist Me, and who force Me, so to speak, by their rejection, to repeat My loving invitation to them.

Why, what else can My calls be, full of glowing love, than the Will of love of a loving God. Who wants to save His creatures? However, I know very well, that not many wish to follow My generous invitation, and that even the few who do accept, must strive hard to receive Me.

Well then! I shall show ever more generosity { as if I had not been generous enough up to now }, and I shall do this by giving all of you a precious Gem of My Love, I have decided to open a dam, in order to let flow the torrent of My Graces, which My Heart can no longer hold back.

JESUS SPEAKS

LOOK WHAT I HAVE TO OFFER YOU IN RETURN FOR A LITTLE LOVE FROM YOU.

  1. To all those who remember My Agony, with love and devotion, at least once a day; forgiveness of all sins and the certainty of salvation for their souls in the hour of their death.
  2. Total and everlasting repentance to those who will have a Mass celebrated in honor of My Agonizing Suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane.
  3. Success in spiritual matters to all those, who impress on others, love and devotion to My Agonies on the Mount of Olives.
  4. Finally, and in order to prove to you that I want to break open a dam of My Heart so as to let flow a flood of My graces, I promise those who spread this devotion to My Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, the following 3 graces:

a. total and final victory over the worst temptation to which they are subjected.
b. direct power to save poor souls from purgatory.
c. great enlightenment and strength to fulfill My Will.

All of these, My precious gifts, I will definitely give to those who carry out what I have said, and who, therefore, remember and venerate with love and sympathy, My great, incomprehensible Agony on the Mount of Olives.”

God Bless

Pete.
