Why Hate Egypt?

Email Print

When the politician Herod sought to murder the baby Jesus, and did murder all the little boys up to the age of two, an Angel warned the Holy Family to flee to Egypt, where they would be safe. So shouldn’t we venerate Egypt? That doesn’t mean liking the Muslim Brotherhood, anymore than venerating the Holy Land means liking Likud. It does mean appreciating a place where the Son of God, His Mother, and St. Joseph found sanctuary, at the direction of God the Father.
