Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way!
"Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine."
"My prayer is not for the world, but for those you have given me, because they belong to you.
When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they divided his clothes among the four of them. They also took his robe, but it was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.
