Church of All Nations renovation very close to completion

(terrasanctablog)  From our partners at Franciscan Media Center: “The Church of Gethsemane can once again be seen in all its splendor”

After 18 months of works the Church of Gethsemane has recovered its former glory: the restoration of the precious mosaics has been completed, and the 5,000 pilgrims who each day visit the Church of the Agony in Jerusalem will once more be able to linger in the Church’s ancient aisles, immersed in a nocturnal setting intensified by these mosaics in which, against a dark blue background framed by olive branches, the starry sky lights up.
