Flight into Egypt

Here is a picture of a lovely poster in the Chapel depicting the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph travelling from Bethlehem to Egypt. King Herod was wanting to kill Jesus, so they had to make a quick escape.
What a tough life the Holy Family were having! They had to travel from their home town of Nazareth to Bethlehem in order to be enrolled for tax purposes, and now they are becoming refugees in a foreign country.
Many people in the world today have similar stories to tell.
In the poster I like Jesus - the Light of the World - shining out from within Our Lady's coat! Jesus still shines in the darkest places of the world today - it is only our sins which try to cover up his light.
