The images I share here come from my heart. They are not to be reproduced without my express written permission.

The Church of All Nations

The Church of All Nations, also known as the Church or Basilica of the Agony, is a Roman Catholic church located on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. It is located next to the Garden of Gethsemane. It is at this location that Jesus prayed before his arrest. (Mark 14:32-42)





The Rock of Agony, where Jesus “threw himself on the ground” (Matthew 26:39) and in his anguish “his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down on the ground” (Luke 22:44).
