A press photo with caption that reads:”Holy Refuge, Mataria, Egypt. The Virgin Tree is proving a Mecca for holy year pilgrims reaching Rome by way of Egypt. The 300-year old tree, tradition holds, is on the site of a tree in which the Virgin Mary hid herself and the infant Jesus to escape King Herod’s death-dealing soldiers.” Circa February 9 1950
