Thought of the Day March 21, 2024 Lent: prayer in moments of darkness

By 11:05 AM

 The passion of Christ continued through the night of his arrest. After condemning him, he was thrown into a cell hole for the rest of the night. No food, no water, no place to rest. Only silence and darkness. What did Jesus do during those hours of imprisonment? I think he continued his prayer started in the Garden. He prayed for strength to endure what was ahead of him, death by crucifixion.  He didn't have to endure any of this. He chose to be mistreated and judged, though innocent, for our sake, because of his great love. Can we choose to spend some time with Jesus in silence to comfort him, not focusing on ourselves but on him? Lord, thank you for your love.
