And going out, he went, according to his custom, to the Mount of Olives. And his disciples also followed him. And when he was come to the place, he said to them: Pray, lest ye enter into temptation. And he was withdrawn away from them a stone’s cast. And kneeling down, he prayed. Saying: Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from me; but yet not my will, but thine be done. And there appeared to him an angel from Heaven, strengthening him. And being in agony, he prayed the longer. And his sweat became as drops of blood, trickling down upon the ground.
Luke 22: 39-44
This rosary is dedicated to The Agony in the Garden and to all who are suffering their own personal agonies.
The cold of the stone under His knees, as He knelt in prayer, is represented by the faux stone Czech glass Aves. Unpolished black onyx Paters symbolize both, the darkness of the night and the darkness which was to come. Red accents recall the blood He shed as He prayed that night and the blood He was about to shed for us.
Completed with a copper Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) center and crucifix, this solemn limited edition rosary measures 21”.
Your Agony in the Garden Rosary will be shipped in a fabric purse and gift box.

"He did not say: You will not be assailed, you will not be belabored, you will not be disquieted, but he said: You will not be overcome."

In writing about her ways of praying, Saint Teresa of Avila wrote that she found comfort in envisioning Jesus in His Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane. There, He was alone and afflicted and she strove to be His companion. There, He was a person so in need that He had to accept her. She thought of the sweat and agony and desired “to wipe away the sweat He so painfully experienced.”
