*May he rest in peace. Strand just passed away in November of 2014. Here's a lovely piece about him from his friend, Charles Simic.
(With thanks to Ruth for bringing the release of the poster to my attention.)
In Turkey, I visited Mary’s House and the tomb of St. John in Ephesus as well as ancient Churches in Istanbul. But as I mentioned in my column about visiting Rome I feel closest to God when I am caring for precious little ones and their parents — even closer than standing in an amphitheater where Paul preached — for our vocations are precious individual gifts to us from God.I'm so grateful for amazing women like Tammy who do the vital work of supporting and assisting grieving parents.
