"It is tempting to imagine that life was easy for Jesus: that so sure was he about who he was and who he was called to be that he faced suffering and death with calm and equanimity." Paula Gooder reflects on the first Station of the Cross, Jesus in agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, with readings and prayers from Stephen Cottrell. Today's reading is Mark 14.32-36.
