Custos of the Holy Land
“We know from Matthew’s Gospel that an angel appears to Joseph in a dream and tells him to take Mary and the child with him and to flee to Egypt because Herod wants to kill them. According to a very ancient tradition, this is one of the places where Mary stopped to take care of the child, to rest and also to nurse him”.
