View looking south at Dominus Flevit.

This church was designed by Antonio Barluzzi and was constructed in the 1950's.  The roof of the church is designed to resemble a "tear drop" — as the church commemorates Jesus weeping over the city of Jerusalem (Luke 19:41–44).  On each of the four corners of the church are large representations of small glass vessels which were used to catch the tears of mourners in the first century A.D.
