According to biblical legend, when the Last Supper ended, Jesus, along with his disciples, went to the Garden of Gethsemane. This garden was very beautiful and had a great view of Jerusalem. The Lord loved to spend time there, and Judas knew about it. Therefore, he brought the guards exactly there to arrest Christ.
Jesus knew about his future fate, so he decided to pray for the salvation of his soul and his offenders. In prayer He said, "Let this Chalice pass from me." His plea was so fervent that bloody sweat rolled down his face. Prayer before this image is able to overcome various despair, which is sometimes present in the life of any person.
