it was amazing

A beautiful reflection of Jesus' time in the Garden of Gethsemene on the first Holy Thursday by St. Thomas while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. A wonderful exegesis, primarily spiritual, in which Sir Thomas was quite reflecting on his own predicament in light of how the Lord handled His impending death.

Several "appendixes" have Thomas's Scriptural quotes and reflections, imploring divine help through the Psalms, how to treat those who wrong us, and more including concluding with "A Prayer before Dying."

Very rich and moving. I used it for Holy Week reading. But it is particularly valuable for anyone going through a very difficult time, especially a terminal illness.
