The agony of Jesus in the garden from La Vie et la passion de Jesus Christ (Passion and Death of Christ) (1903), the first movie to ever have colorized sequences and generally regarded to be the first ever feature length film, though it runs only a scant 45 minutes. You can watch the whole movie on YouTube or The Internet Archive, where you can also download it legally for free. However, if you do decide to give the movie a look-see this evening, do keep in mind the film’s short running time. Remember, Jesus asked us if we could sit with him for an hour, so you’ll still owe Jesus 15 minutes. Don’t short change God.

Peace be with you and your spirit during this holy time. See you after Easter.
