Today we read in the Gospel of the Holy Family's flight into Egypt. An angel appears to Joseph, rousing him from sleep and telling him,

"Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him." (Matthew 2:13)

It is curious that the angel would say to Joseph to take them into Egypt. There were surely many other places that they could have fled to for safety that were out of Herod's reach. Why should they go all the way into Egypt?
