The Monastery of saint "Samaan"

Egypt on the walls of the monasteries

"From Egypt, I invited my son with this verse in the Bible of Matthew in which egypt was mentioned , to emphasize that Egypt has always been a safe haven". On the walls of the monastery of saint Samaan, this text was accompanied by a painting of "Jesus Christ" embraced by his mother " Mary", riding their donkey and Joseph the carpenter taking them back to Egypt escaping from Herod's threat.
