Holy Thursday night
The agony in the garden is when Jesus shows how human He is; He is faced with the betrayal, abandonment, the suffering He knows will end with His death on the cross, yet He prays for the strength to go through with it to show His love until the end. He took His three closest friends with Him and asked them to watch and pray with Him, but they fell asleep. He is alone. This is why we have adoration on Holy Thursday night - we stay with Him in silent adoration.
