Dominus Flevit, Jerusalem

4.6
Shaped as a teardrop, Dominus Flevit marks the spot where Christ wept over the fate of Jerusalem after he triumphantly entered the city on the first Palm Sunday. Commissioned by the Franciscans, the mid 20th-century church features a design by Italian architect Antonio Barluzzi, and occupies the site of an ancient burial ground and the ruins of an early Byzantine church. Near the entrance, you can see the floor mosaics from the earlier church, featuring floral and geometrical motifs. The window behind the altar offers scenic views of the city and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

  • This is where Jesus taught his disciples. Behind the chair of the church, a white cross carpet lays in the place where Jesus saw the future of Jerusalem and cried. In front of the temple, because it is the church where Jesus wept, there are tears in the four corners of the church. On the podium of the church, there is a mosaic of scriptures that I would have tried to gather your children some how many times, as the chickens (hens and chicks) Bible, Matthew 23:37, gather their chicks under their wings.

  • Another place of recollection and prayer for Christians all over the world. Essential to visit these places with the Bible or better as we did with a Christian guide.
