Site of Last Supper remains focus of Vatican-Israel dispute for control


The Vatican and the state of Israel continue to dispute ownership of a revered site in Jerusalem which is said to be both the burial place of King David and the site of the Last Supper.

The building, which has been destroyed and reconstructed several times over the centuries, was also apparently used as a mosque at one time, so Muslim leaders also seek access to the site.

The Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land, which held the building for centuries, seeks to have ownership returned to the Catholic Church. The state of Israel took control after the 1967 war, and limits access to Christian pilgrims.

  1. Let the dead bury the dead,God is at hand wherever one is.

  2. Good morning!

  3. We shouldn’t be worshiping a supposed site of the Last Supper, so Rome should let Israel have it. After all, it is in their country!!!

  4. These are all money-minting sites , religion or devotion is absolutely not the criteria.ECONOMICAL RACKET is the word………….but starts from politics.
    Let us be steadfast on living CHRIST.
