Sacred Ground

Israel DE-3355174 received 08-08-2014

Sent by: wolf753

Notes: The Church of All Nations, also known as the Church of the Agony, is located on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Israel.  It is a Roman Catholic church, and was completed in 1924, using funds from many different countries (hence the name). The area in front of the church in this photo is the Garden of Gethsemane.  If you are familiar with the Bible, you may recognize that name as the location where Jesus prayed before he was arrested and crucified.  Wolfgang was on vacation in Israel when he sent this card to me.  He took part in an archaeological excavation at Tel Hazor while he was there.
