A New Olive Tree at Gethsemane — From Pope Francis

The Pontiff will plant an olive tree in the Garden of Gethsemane as a symbolic gesture, a forerunner of peace and prosperity for the Holy Land. “This tree is a symbol of peace, and we all hope that the pontiff’s visit will bring forth the fruit of peace,” says Fr. José Benito Choque, the Argentinian Franciscan of the Custody of the Holy Land who is responsible for the sanctuary.
