Jesus in Gethsemane

“Let this cup pass from me, nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt.” (Luke 22:42)


The top symbol is the Crown of thorns, a passion symbol of our Lord. The Roman soldiers plaited a crown of thorns and mockingly placed it on His head. The lower symbol, the Latin or Passion cross, is the most popular form of all crosses. This is the form on which it is said the Lord was crucified. This cross, without the body of Christ, represents the risen and living Christ. Many symbols are shown in this window; grapes and vines, water, angel, roses, fir tree, chalice and twelve-pointed star. Christ prays in the garden on the eve of His crucifixion. Peter, James and John are sleeping nearby.
