I went to see the Church of Saint Anne and the pools this week and was a bit disappointed. I visited the church regularly 40 years ago, and to my astonishment I did not see any improvement/upgrade in these years. Only noticeable difference was that they now ask for entrance fee, and not only donations as the majority of other Christian sites in Jerusalem. I hope we he make the experienxe more up to date.

The Church of St Anne is in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem next to the Pools of Bethesda. Bethesda is where the maternal grandparents of Jesus (Anne and Joachim) lived and where Mary, the mother of Jesus, was born. The Church, which is dedicated to Anne and Joachim, which was built around 1140 was erected near the remains of a Byzantine basilica built over the site of a grotto believed by the Crusaders to be the childhood home of the Virgin Mary. The French Government owns the compound containing the Church and the Pools of Bethesda (the site of one of Jesus' miracles) and it is administered by Les Peres Blancs (The White Fathers)
