Egyptian Apparitions

Q: Were Marian apparitions reported in Egypt recently?

A: Since 1968, two series of Marian apparitions reportedly took place in the suburbs of Cairo. The first series occurred in Zeitun from April 2, 1968 until September 1970. The second occurred in Shoubra on an ongoing basis from 1983 until, at least, 1990. These apparitions have certain characteristics in common:

1) They were both recognized by Shenouda III, Pope of the Coptic Church separated from Rome but currently engaged in positive dialogue with Rome.

2) Muslims also have seen the apparitions.

3) The apparition allowed itself to be photographed.
