Christ's Entry into Jerusalem (Hippolyte Flandrin, 1842, Church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris)
Mt 23:37-39

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how many times I yearned to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her young under her wings, but you were unwilling! Behold, your house will be abandoned, desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'".
