During the 1968 The New York Times published a few articles about apparitions in Cairo.

Twelve bearded, black-robed clergymen of the Coptic Orthodox Church, seated beneath a large photograph of President Gamal Abdel Nasser at the patriarchal palace here, affirmed today their acceptance of reported miraculous appearances of the Virgin Mary in Cairo.

THE NEW YORK TIMES, Sunday, May 5, 1968.

Moslems and Christians alike, they have shuffled through the sandy yard of Zeitoun's Church of Saint Mary for three months, since the Virgin was first said to have appeared miraculously floating over the church's dome.

Since then, countless Egyptians have reported seeing her above the church, sometimes as a glowing light and sometimes as an articulated figure, occasionally bearing an olive branch.
