8 Dominus Flevit Church on Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Israel

The next stop on your tour of Mount of Olives is the Church of Dominus Flevit. The name means the Lord wept. This is a reference to the first Palm Sunday when Jesus predicted Jerusalem’s destruction. His prophecy came true in 70 AD. During the almost five-month Siege of Jerusalem, Romans sacked the city and killed an estimated one million people and enslaved 100,000 others. Architect Antonio Barluzzi designed the 1955 Catholic church in the shape of a teardrop.
