CWN Editor's Note: “We thank God that the fire was quickly extinguished and we value the efforts of the youth of Jerusalem who were able to stop the assailant without him causing more damage to the church,” the Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land said following the December 4 fire. “It is worth noting that the Basilica of All Nations was built on the rock on which Lord Jesus Christ prayed prior to his arrest and crucifixion.”
