A recent conference in Rome took a closer look at the Holy family’s journey to Egypt. The event was organized by the Pontifical Oriental Institute. One speaker noted that Egypt continues to welcome migrants, just as the Holy family is believed to have fled there from Bethlehem to escape King Herod. Now, the trans-continental country is also becoming popular as a Christian pilgrimage destination. Member of the Karol Wojtyla International Association, Professor Paolo Branca, joins to tell us more about this conference and the value of Egypt as a place of refuge. During the conference, he moderated the discussion about the presence of the Holy family and Jesus in Egypt. He shares more about that. The conference also focused on spiritual tourism in Egypt and new projects. Professor Branca discusses more on this.
