FAMOUS VIRGIN MARY
For more than a year, starting on the eve
of Tuesday, April 2, 1968, the Blessed Holy Virgin Saint Mary,
Mother of God, appeared in different forms over the domes of the
Coptic Orthodox Church named after Her at Zeitoun, Cairo, Egypt.
The late Rev. Father Constantine Moussa was the church priest at
the time of these apparitions. The apparitions lasted from only
a few minutes up to several hours and were sometimes accompanied
by luminous heavenly bodies shaped like doves and moving at high
The apparitions were seen by millions of Egyptians and
foreigners. Among the witnesses were
Orthodox, Catholics, Protestants, Moslems, Jews and
non-religious people from all walks of life. The sick were cured
and blind persons received their sight.
