Staying Awake Revisited

I’ve been thinking a lot about the our Lord’s Agony in the Garden.  Specifically, I’ve been thinking about “staying awake” for our Lord.

In fact, my plan for this article was to write about how we need to “stay awake” and not be so critical of the disciples who fell asleep since, you know, we’re far from perfect ourselves!

As I prepared to formulate my first sentence (the hardest sentence by the way) I stopped and asked myself, “Wait, have I already written about this?”  I honestly couldn’t remember so I decided to do a search at the top of our site.

Bam.  There it was. Stay Awake!  I wrote this article 2 years ago during Lent.  It was pretty cool to read it and realize that while I’d like to think I’ve grown spiritually since then I am still, very much, a work in process.  And I still contemplate the same thoughts.

So, if you haven’t read this Stay Awake article feel free to check it out.

Until next time… be holy, eat clean, and do more push-ups!
