«WATCH AND PRAY»

Spirituality, mysticism and prayer in times of political unrest

"Watch and pray" (Mk 14:38). This is what Jesus asks of his disciples and yet, they're sleeping. In the garden of Gethsemane Jesus watches and prays and struggles with God. He speaks the words he taught his disciples just before: "Not what I want, but what you want! (Mk 14:35). What does Jesus' prayer mean for our prayer today? We follow its depth and ask about the substance of Christian spirituality, mysticism and prayer for our time.
