Death of St Joseph

"Now we can see how the last summoning words of the Lord appropriately apply to Saint Joseph: “Enter into the joy of your Lord.” In fact, although the joy of eternal happiness enters into the soul of a man, the Lord preferred to say to Joseph: “Enter into joy.” His intention was that the words should have a hidden spiritual meaning for us. They convey not only that this holy man possesses an inward joy, but also that it surrounds him and engulfs him like an infinite abyss." - From a sermon by St Bernardine of Siena. 19 March is the Solemnity of St Joseph, and this window by Hardman is in the church of Our Lady and the English Martyrs in Cambridge.
