On November 25 / December 8, 1951, just after recovering from a serious illness, Vladyka was raised to the rank of archbishop and transferred to Argentina. Here he soon became deeply loved by all. During his first visitation of his diocese, which included Paraguay, he visited a sick woman who had lain paralyzed in a hospital for a long time. She asked for his prayers, to which he at once agreed, but he asked her whether she had faith in God and His ability to heal her. She said “yes”. Whereupon he prayed and gave his panagia to her to kiss. She was immediately healed.
