Church of the Pater Noster

The Church of the Pater Noster (Église du Pater Noster) is a roman catholic church located on the mount of olives in Jerusalem , also known as the Sanctuary of the Eleona ( Domaine de l'Eleona). The Church of the Pater Noster stands right next to the ruins of the 4th-century Byzantine Church of Eleona. The ruins of the Eleona were rediscovered in the 20th century and its walls were partially rebuilt. For the first time, the church was built by Helena, the mother of Constantine . Constantine's biographer wrote that Helena was responsible for building the church, which was called the Elona = Olives.

Two traditions were associated with the place:

Study of the end of days

Studying the prayer

Study of the end of days

I have a good time

The Gospels were written in the 80s AD, when the apostles were persecuted. Jesus teaches what will happen in the world that will mark the end of days - this is the essence of the vision in three stages:

Disasters, troubles, wars will come

His electors will be gathered from the four wings of the country

The end of days will come

The ambition is to return to heaven, to be close to God. Life here is on the way to redemption. Jesus gives hints when redemption will come.

The event was in the last week of Jesus' life, when Jesus was in Jerusalem, before the fifth day.

“The Messiah' and many will be deceived. 6 And you are going to hear wars and rumors of war. Pay attention, don't panic; Because this thing had to be, and the end of all this has not yet come. 7 Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there will be famine and earthquakes in many places, 8 but all these are the beginning of trouble. 9 Then they will hand you over to the persecutors and kill you and you will be hated by all the nations because of my name. 10 Many will fail at that time and will betray each other and hate each other. 11 False prophets will arise and many will go astray, 12 and after the promiscuity has multiplied, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who holds fast to the end will be saved. 14 And this good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world for a witness to all the Gentiles, and after that the end will come." (Matthew 24).”

A tradition from the Crusader period - Jesus also taught the disciples how to pray: "The Lord's Prayer".

(Matthew 6:5-15).

“When you pray, don't be like hypocrites, who love to pray standing in synagogues and on street corners so that they will be afraid of people. Verily I say unto you, that you are hired. 6 And you, when you pray, go into your room, close the door behind you, and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secrets will reward you. 7 When you pray, refrain from muttering words like heathens, the thinkers will be heard in most of their speech. 8 Do not be like them, because your Father knows your needs before you ask Him. 9 That is why you prayed: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, may your will be done as in heaven so on earth. 11 Give us the bread of our judgment today, 12 and forgive us our sins as we also forgive those who sin against us. 13 And do not bring us into the hands of temptation, because we have delivered ourselves from evil.' [For thine is the kingdom and the might and glory for ever and ever. Amen.] 14 For if you forgive the sons of men for their sins, your Father in heaven will also forgive you. 15 And if you do not forgive the children of men, neither will your father forgive you for your sins”
