The beautiful stained glass window of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane can be seen inside Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church. I photographed the window on October 7, 2009 while visiting and praying at the church, which is located in Boonton, NJ, USA.

The photograph is remarkable, because if you examine the image closely, sunlight is creating an extraordinary silhouette of Jesus on the right side of the window. Truly awe-inspiring and a rarity in photography to capture such detail. Without hesitation, it was a blessed moment! God's timing always seems to be perfect, especially when it's unexpected.

Scripture - Luke 22:39-46

Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane


Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation." He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done." An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
