OF THE FLIGHT TO EGYPT
St. Matthew writes in the second Chapter [13-16].
First Point. First: Herod wanted to kill the Child Jesus, and so killed the Innocents, and before their death the Angel warned Joseph to fly into Egypt: “`Arise and take the Child and His Mother, and fly to Egypt.'”
Second Point. Second: He departed for Egypt. “Who arising by night departed to Egypt.”
Third Point. Third: He was there until the death of Herod.
