Not really Oriental (non-Chalcedonian) POV

This is based on a vision and writings by Popes Theophilus (23rd) and Cyril (24th) of Alexandria, both are pre-Chalcedon/schism popes of Alexandria. Other sources besides Church tradition include material by 2nd and 3rd century Greek and Jewish writers/philosophers/historians.

Witness of miracles

In one very small street in el-Matarya district of today's Cairo, all kinds of bread and bakery cannot be leavened up to this day (2005) since the Virgin Mary visited that place with the Holy Family 2000 years ago and they were refused bread and cast away. This is an ongoing miracle that anyone can witness till this very day. Bread leavens normally in all surroundind streets.
