The Church of All Nations, also known as the Basilica of the Agony, is a Franciscan Catholic church in the Garden of Gethsemane, built on the site where, according to tradition, Jesus Christ performed the "prayer of the cup", the last night before His arrest.
The Church of All Nations
The church is consecrated in honor of the Passion (suffering) of the Lord. It was built in 1924, designed by the Italian architect Antonio Barluzzi. In front of the main altar lies a large flat uneven stone surrounded by a cast iron crown of thorns. Near it, according to tradition, the betrayal of Judas and the arrest of Jesus took place.
The construction of the church was financed by Catholic communities from many European countries, as well as from Canada, after which it is named.
