Fr. David Lynch _ HOLY WEEK 2017
A message from Fr. David 

"What does it mean that the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak?"

Just before His arrest, Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane, and He said to His disciples, "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak" (Matthew 26:41). The command came after Jesus had been praying to the Father and had found the disciples sleeping instead of praying (verses 38-40). He had admonished them to stay awake and pray with Him, but "their eyes were heavy" (verse 43), and they kept falling asleep. They slept right up until the time the armed mob came to take Jesus away (verses 45-47).
