this church is located on top of the Mount of Olives, and is one of the first to be visited before the walking descent to the Garden of Gethsemane. It is under french flag, so it is important to visit if you can.

Building of the second Church started in 1920. After raising walls, there was no money left to continue.Bad Luck. But they didn't remove walls. (Why?) Later, they decorated them with plaques that bear the 'Lord's Prayer' in over 100 different languages. Why? What for? To fill up the space? To make the walls more attractive? To me, this is an...

This is very interesting to see where it is said that Jesus taught it's disciples about prayer! For some it's to be thankful, for others it is to praise and yet for others to give thanks. To me we pray for all three! They have the "Our father" prayer in more than 30 languages! #planforamiracle

The site is very pretty. Aside from the Lord's prayer is different languages covering almost every wall, the is the tomb of a French woman who was involvved in founding the place, with her beautiful statue lying on top of it.

The church of the pater noster is built on the remains of the 4th century church of eleona, which can still be seen in the crypt. The current modern church erected by a French carmelite in 1870 provides displays with the Pater Noster prayer in many languages, including three varieties of Dutch: Afrikaans, Flemish (Flamand) and Nederlands! The church is... More

My second visit here was more fabulous because I discovered so much more this time round. The large garden is wonderful for fellowship with Jesus by prayer. Seeing Lord's Prayer in so many languages was surprising. It's a quiet place unlike the Old City so just take in the special atmosphere there is in the highest point overlooking Jerusalem.

The Church of Pater Noster displays the Lord's prayer in several languages! I am so glad that the Philippines has 4 Filipino translations of the “Our Father” at the Pater Noster church in Tagalog, Pampango, Cebuano and Ilonggo.

We went for a visit with our kids (14, 9). As you can imagine they're not particularly into churches and related visits. But they loved this one, and so did we, by heir parents. It's a beautiful building with great arch galleries and a very nice garden. The number of languages in which the Pater Noster is displayed is very... More

This place is a jewel. Beautifully kept rose gardens, a stunning olive tree field, silence and contemplation all around. Few benches and no cafe, otherwise I would have stayed hours.

I have been to the Mount of Olives a few times and did not realize that the site where Jesus taught the Our Father was right around the corner. The prayer is now on display in 171 different languages. The garden of olive trees outside of this partially reconstructed Roman Catholic church is peaceful and meditative. There is a lovely...
