Commemorated on October 19
Cleopatra came from the village of Edra near Mount Tabor in Palestine. She
was a contemporary of the holy Martyr Uaros and beheld his voluntary suffering.
After the execution, blessed Cleopatra transferred the body of the holy martyr
to her own country and buried him with reverence. Cleopatra had but a single
and beloved son, John, who had attained the honourable rank of officer. To the
great sorrow of his mother, John suddenly died. Cleopatra with tears of grief
turned to the relics of the holy Martyr Uaros, beseeching him for the
resuscitation of her son.
