Jan 14 On entering the house and seeing the child with Mary, they bowed down and worshipped him. Opening their treasures, they gave him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Being warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their country by another way.

2.5 After their departure, an angel of the Lord told Joseph in another dream, saying, “Rise up, flee to Egypt with the child and Mary, till I further direct. Herod will seek the child to kill him.” Rising, Joseph took them by night, left for Egypt and stayed there until Herods death - thus fulfilling what the Lord said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt, I called My Son.”
