“They went then to a place named Gethsemani.  ‘Sit down here while I pray,’ he said to his disciples; at the same time he took along with him Peter, James, and John.  Then he began to be filled with fear and distress.  He said to them, ‘My heart is filled with sorrow to the point of death.  Remain here and stay awake.’” Mark 14:32-34

I had been going to Perpetual Adoration every Monday for several years after hearing the pleas of a traveling priest to answer Jesus’ call to the apostles.  The priest had assured us that the adorers and the church would receive many blessings.  I had indeed received many blessings, but did not truly experience God in the Exposition until I learned of my father’s terminal cancer.

I could find no peace anywhere and cried anxiously until I arrived at my Monday morning Adoration.  When I knelt before the Blessed Sacrament, a wave of peace flooded over me.  I felt that if a bomb were to explode outside, I would be safe there with the Lord.  Jesus’ words rang in my ears, “I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20).  I realized that although I had to go through the pain of my father’s upcoming death, I would not be alone.  Jesus would be with me all the way.
