Garden of Gethsemene- Joint Issue Israel Vatican

Date of Issue : 15 November 2010

To commemorate Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the Holy Land in May 2009, a Israel-Vatican joint issue stamp was issued on 15 Nov 2010. It features some of the olive trees in the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem. The Church of All Nations appears in the background of the stamp and on the tab.

Gethsemane is a garden at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem most famous as the place where Jesus and his disciples prayed the night before Jesus' crucifixion.

A really very nice joint issue FDC from Israel. I very much like it. Thank you very much to my friend !
