The Agony in the Garden

From The Revelations of Saint Bridget, on the Life and Passion of Our Lord, and the Life of His Blessed Mother, Chapter XV by Saint Bridget of Sweden (1303-1373)

Jesus speaks:

I had three things in my death.

First, FAITH, when I bent my knees and prayed, knowing that the Father could deliver me from my Passion.

Second, HOPE, when I waited so constantly, and said: Not as I will.

Third, CHARITY, when I said: Thy will be done.
I had, too, anguish of body and the natural fear of my Passion, when the blood issued from my body.

Let not my friends then tremble as if abandoned, when tribulation comes upon them; I showed them in myself that weak flesh always shrinks from trouble.

But you may ask, How did a bloody sweat issue from my body?

As the blood of the sick man is dried and consumed in all his members, so my blood was consumed by the natural fear of death.

Finally, my Father, wishing to show the way by which Heaven should be opened and the excluded man allowed to enter in, He, out of love delivered me up to the Passion that, by accomplishing it, my body might be glorified.

For in justice, my humanity could not enter glory without my Passion, although I might have done so by the power of my Divinity.

How then do they deserve to enter into my glory, who have little faith, vain hope, and no charity?

If, indeed, they had the faith of eternal joy and horrible punishment, they would desire naught but me.

Did they believe that I know and see all things, and am powerful over all things, and seek judgment of all? The earth would grow vile to them, and they would be more afraid to sin before me for my fear, than before men.

Had they firm hope, then their whole mind and thought would be to me.

Had they divine charity, they would at least think in mind what I did for them; how great was my labor in preaching, my pain in my Passion, my charity in death, because I preferred death to abandoning them.

But their faith is weak, tottering as it were, to fall; because they believe, when the assult of temptation is absent: they distrust, when any thing contrary comes upon them.

Their hope is vain; they hope that sin will be forgiving without justice and truth of judgment.

They trust to obtain the Kingdom of Heaven gratis; they desire to obtain mercy untempered by justice.

Their love towards me is all cold, because they are never inflamed to seek me unless compelled by tribulation.

How can I be warmed with such, who have neither right faith, firm hope, nor fervent love for me?

So when they cry out to me and say: "Have mercy on me, O God," they do not deserve to be heard, nor to enter into my glory.

As they will not follow their Lord to His Passion, they shall not follow Him to His glory.

For no soldier can please his Lord and, after falling, be restored to favor, unless he first humbles himself to expose his contemptuousness.

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.

Let us pray:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all
the faithful, we beseech Thee to grant
to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

Padre Nuestro,

Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros
perdonamos a los que nos ofenden,
No nos dejes caer en la tentación,

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

Desde lo hondo a Ti grito, Señor; Señor,
escucha mi voz;
Estén Tus oidos atentos
a la voz de mi súplica.

Si llevas cuenta de los delitos, Señor,
¿quién podrá resistir?
Pero de ti procede el perdón,
y así infundes respeto.
Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;
mi alma aguarda al Señor,
más que el centinela la aurora.
Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.
la redención copiosa;
y Él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
Espíritu Santo,
como es desde el principio,
es ahora y será por los siglos de los siglos.
