Am not sure what to make of this. Patrick Madrid from Catholic radio has this reaction on Twitter:
“If true this is BEYOND surreal. And quite disturbing.”
“The Vatican office charged with issuing stamps, known as the Philatelic and Numismatic Office, confirmed Tuesday to LifeSiteNews that Luther, who broke away from the Catholic Church in a schism 500 years ago, will be celebrated with a postage stamp in 2017. The office is in charge of the annual commission of stamps, coins, and other commemorative medals.”
Why would they celebrate Martin Luther with a stamp rather than someone who was faithful to our Church? It makes no sense.
