I don't think this is a postage stamp but it was in some kiloware.
Would appreciate help with identification or translation of the text. Best I can come up with is something referencing 1968, perhaps the Eastern Orthodox Church. Just my best guess, could be way off.
Thanks

re: From my "unknowns"

The label is in Ukrainian - note the letter "I" which isn't used in Russian.

The text appears to be something like:

The blessed Kir Joseph in Canada

Ukrainian Kievan-Galician Patriarchate

A Patriarch is the Eastern Orthodox equivalent of a Catholic Pope; Patriarchs exist among the various ethnic Orthodox groups (Russian, Ukrainian, Greek, Serbian, etc.).

re: From my "unknowns"

Thank you both for that information. Ukraine had gone through my mind, some of the characters the same as on some Ukraine stamps I had sorted recently.
I'll tuck it away in my book of 'stamp-like' things with a little note.

Ukraine has a (broadly speaking) Catholic West and Orthodox East.

If the prediction of future trouble in The Clash of Civilizations comes true, your label might become explanatory.
