The Cathedral

We stayed at the former Catholic Cathedral, which has now become the Orthodox Cathedral. All foreigners left Port Said in the 60s leaving behind their buildings. 
We had a very late lunch at the Bishop's residence and after lunch he showed us the picture of the Virgin Mary which produces oil and perfume with healing powers. The picture has been doing this for 25 years now. 

You can see the bag under the picture to catch the oil and perfume. It takes about a month to fill the bag.
