Located on the Mount of Olives
When you descend the Mount of Olives in the direction of Jerusalem,
an incomparable tableau unfolds before your eyes. Now imagine, if
your view is so stupendous, what Jesus must have observed on his
last, fateful journey 2,000 years ago. At that time the Holy Temple
towered above the Kidron Valley - its marble columns and enormous
bronze doors a shimmering vision in the morning sun.
Located on the Mount of Olives and immediately facing the Old City's
magnificent panorama is a sanctuary called Dominus Flevit, which
literally means, in Latin, "the Lord wept" . To symbolize what
occurred on or near this site, the sanctuary was fashioned in what
the architect envisaged as a teardrop. Thus the building itself
serves as a poignant reminder of that New Testament scene.
One of the newest churches in Jerusalem, Dominus Flevit sits atop a
very ancient site.
While from the top of the mountain Dominus Flevit's intriguingly
abstract exterior appears to be the top of a large and impressive
edifice, the church is actually quite small.
The compact chapel's most remarkable feature is its arch-shaped
picture window, purposely situated behind the altar. A stupendous
view of the contemporary Old City includes a section of 400-year-old
Turkish-built walls, many of its buildings, and the Mosque of Omar's
glittering, golden dome.
Architect of this modern masterpiece was Antonio Barluzzi, who
designed several of Jerusalem's most delightful sanctuaries and the
monumental edifice which served at the beginning of the century as
the city's Italian Hospital.
