A Great Earthquake took place in Cairo and Most of the Egyptian Cities
On this day also a great earthquake took place in Cairo and most of the Egyptian cities at
9: 00a.m. On this day, a church named after Michael the Archangel, at El-Gazyra in Cairo, was destroyed, among many other places. It was said that certain ungodly people had asked the Christians for a bribe, but they did not yield; and when it was evening these men came and destroyed the church completely. This was in the ninth year of the Papacy of Abba Macarius in the year 828of the Holy Martyrs ( 1112A. D.).
Their intercession be with us all, and Glory be to our God forever. Amen.
