by St Austin, Bishop [of Hippo.] (Chaps, xxv., xxvi., xxvii., torn. 3.) T^HE Lord threatened man with the punishment of death, in case he sinned. Thus did He gift him with free will, while He yet kept His lord ship over him, and helped him with the dread of destruction. And so He put him in that happy garden, under the . very shadow of the tree of life, in that good place from whence, had he kept his righteousness, he might have passed to a better. But the first man sinned, and was banished from Eden, and infected all his descendants with the disease of sin, poisoning their very root, and bringing upon all that sen tence of death and damnation, which he had earned for himself. So that all that descend by fleshly generation from Adam, and from the guilty woman, who was the cause of his sin and the partaker of his punishment, derive from them original sin ; where by they are drawn through a way of divers sins and sorrows, towards that final ruin which they shall share with the rebel angels who are at once their corrupters, their lords, and their comrades.

The Lord prayed and besought, but not for Himself for what had the Innocent One to ask for for Himself?

There is not one Will of the Father, and another Will of the Son. There is but one Will, where there is but one God.  Learn, nevertheless, from the ensample of Christ, to be resigned to God's Will, and not to choose that which best pleaseth thyself, but that which thou knowest will best please God.
  
The wills of men are temporal, but the Will of God is eternal. There is not one Will of the Father, and another Will of the Son. There is but one Will, where there is but one God.

&quot;THEN He saith : &quot; I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.&quot; (Matth. xxvi. 31.) He was sorrowful because He was leaving us orphans.  But how resolutely He was giving Himself up to die is sufficiently clear by what followed, when He went to meet those that sought Him, when He calmed the agitated, when He nerved the timid, when He received the traitor himself with the condescension of a kiss. Neither is it other than the truth to say that He was sorrowful for their sakes who were hunting Him down, since He knew what a punish ment they were to undergo for that unutterable crime. And because of all these things He said : &quot; Let this cup pass from Me ! &quot; It was not that the Divine Son of the Divine Being was afraid to die, but He would not that even wicked men should perish on His account.
