Our pilgrimage walked from the Mount of Olives to the Garden of Gethsemane and stopped here for a few minutes while our guide chatted. We were not able to enter. However, this is a peaceful site and a respite from the crowds above and below. For the amateur photographer, it was disappointing that we could not go inside. Regarding the exterior, it has nice lines. Contrast is an issue. My suggestion is to travel with minimal gear as the walk is steep and strenuous either up or down. One thing you will not see in Jerusalem much are plants. There are some here, and that is a good subject.

The Dominus Flevit - "The Lord Wept" is at the spot on the slopes of the Mount of Olives where Jesus Christ wept over the City of Jerusalem as he overlooked Jerusalem just across the Kidron Valley from the Mount of Olives. The site of Dominus Flevit still has a well landscaped and maintained viewpoint with a panoramic view of the whole city across the valley. A Chapel located on the site has a very picturesque window behind the altar with a metalwork cross conveniently positioned like a cross-hair right across the valley and centered on the Temple Dome. Almost a symbolic suggestion of Christianity conquering Islam.

Most breathtaking mass we ever attended just outside Dominus Flevit with views of the Old City of Jerusalem with the iconic Dome of the Rock. Also one of the most emotional experiences and of course lots and lots of photos after the mass.

I visited the church on 26-20-2020 Approx at 15.45 or 16 o'clock, there were 2 young men in the entrance the two have a beard one is about 1.72 ( 27 - 30 Years old and dark blonde ) the other about 1.75 or 1.77 tall ( 30 - 34 Years old ) at the entrance to the church the guy with sunglasses stood by the car (about 1.75 or 1.77 tall) asks me if I like to eat banana, I said no but why do you ask me? I just ignored him and kept walking. he called the other one and told him in Arabic look he is gay or in palestinian language ( beynam ala batno ), the other followed me and asked me where I came from, I told him Im from Germany, called another friend by phone and give it to me and he told him in Arabic (he is gay speak with him) i take the phone and speak with the guy because i dont know what they want exactly from me, in 1 min i give him the phone back and i told him in Arabic ( why you do that, you think it´s funny to do that, first im not Gay and seconde i speak arabic better then you and it deosn´t mean because i come from Germany i don´t speak arabic ) he was shocked. i was so angry and i didn´t enjoy the visit of the church i was approx 3 min inside, and i leave. i was feel so baaaad to see them how they treat the tourism, they don`t stop insult the people auf arabic because they think no one understand them. i just told them ( shame of you ) PLEASE DONT GO THERE ALONE.

The Catholic Church of the Dominus Flevit is the creation of Antonio Barluzzi, the Italian regarded as the ‘architect of the Holy Land’. The church was completed in 1955 and is managed by the Franciscans. Dominus Flevit is Latin for ‘The Lord Wept’. According to Luke’s Gospel, Jesus stopped here on the Mount of Olives during His triumphant ride toward Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday. Jesus was overcome by the beauty of the Second Temple and He openly wept when He prophesized about its future destruction. The teardrop-shaped church, symbolizing the tears of Christ, was built on the foundation of an earlier Byzantine church. Inside, do not miss the Byzantine-era floor mosaics that include a large cross. A modern mosaic at the foot of the altar depicts a hen gathering her chicks, symbolic of Jesus’ yearning for the people to recognize and follow Him. A stunning arc-shaped picture window behind the altar overlooks the city, as Jesus did that day. The Dome of the Rock now stands where the Second Temple once did, but that is not the focus of the window. Instead, the cross and chalice point the way to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection.
