Description: Slide 24: one of a collection of lantern slides shown at Clondalkin branch library c 1910. Description given in booklet: Soon after beginning the ascent of Olivet we come to an enclosure about 80 yards square. Knocking at a low door we are admitted by an aged monk, the guardian of the place, and find ourselves in a trim garden. A number of olive trees stand about the flower-beds, some of them hollow, gnarled, and apparently extremely old. On this spot there happened the most solemn and pathetic event in the life even of the Man of Sorrows. Under the shade of these gray olives He endured His bitter agony, and here, deserted and forsaken by all, He meekly surrendered Himself to His murderers. Callous must that heart be, which, on such a spot as this, does not breathe the prayer-" By Thine agony and bloody sweat: by Thy cross and passion: by Thy precious death and burial, good Lord, deliver us."
