Saint Karas

Saint Karas the Anchorite, also known as Anbba Karas (الأنبا كاراس), was a saint of the Coptic Orthodox Church who lived during the late fifth and early sixth centuries.[1] According to his biographer, the Egyptian monk Saint Pambo, he spent 57 years in isolation in the Scetis Desert in communion with God who visited him everyday in his cave. After his death,God closed the cave on his body as the world doesn't deserve his footstep. The location of his cave is unknown.
