“There are basically two things that any one of us does in the face of sadness and grief. We can shut down and pretend we are not feeling this.

Those are the two basic gestures: stand back or move into.” — From Living a Discerning Life in a Complex, Harsh World

The Catholic Register, July 28, 2014 — Canada Post’s new release of stamps by prominent photographers includes a well-known shot by Michel Lambeth of two Sisters of St. Joseph and a man who helped the sisters in Toronto. The stamp, titled St. Joseph’s Convent School, is one of 35 being released in phases over a five-year period, with seven being introduced this year alone.
“We’re a stamp!” said Sister Monica Marie Kelly when she brought along the Canada Post newsletter announcing the 2014 edition of new stamps released July 7, 2014, which included one called St. Joseph’s Convent School (1960). The photograph of an elderly man with two Sisters of St. Joseph in the background was taken by Michel Lambeth, a photographer who delighted in taking pictures of Toronto and its people.
