In the middle of the land of Egypt.. There shall be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt
The Monastery of Muharraq is considered one of the most important stations in which the Holy Family settled.
This monastery is called (Monastery of the Virgin Mary).
The Holy family spent there the longest period of time in this place 6 months and 10 days.
The cave inhabited by the Holy Family is the first church in Egypt and indeed in the whole world.
The altar of the ancient Virgin Mary Church is considered in the middle of the land of Egypt, and according to the word of God this alter literally applied to the words of Isaiah the Prophet:
“And on that day there shall be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt.” (Is 19:19)
In the same place, the angel of the Lord appeared to Saint Joseph in a dream
He commanded him to go back to the land of Israel (Matt 20: 2)
