Once, a Christian lady wanted to meet Elder Cleopa, as she had never seen him. Upon passing by his cell, she bowed and said in her mind: “I kiss your hand, Father”. Right then she heard in her mind the Elder’s voice, saying: “May God’s peace be with you, my daughter”. Then, with a heart filled with peace and joy, she walked on.
