Reflecting some of the weight, grief, and sadness placed on Him at Gethsemane, which means the "place of pressing," a haunting image of the Savior confronts the viewer. "In spite of the darkness of the hour and the heaviness of the load," Muldowney writes, "what happened in Gethsemane is the source of infinite light and peace for us all because He was willing to shoulder the price of all our sins."

"We read, ‘I, God, have suffered these things for all (Doctrine and Covenants 19:16),’ and this reminder helps us in times of division."
