Pope Francis presided over a ceremony to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the prayer for peace in the Holy Land. It was on June 8, 2014 when the presidents of Israel and Palestine traveled to the Vatican.

A decade later, the prayer ceremony took place in the same place in the Vatican Gardens where the leaders planted olive trees. Representatives of the Muslim and Jewish communities were present at the event as well as ambassadors and some 20 cardinals.
