Vatican Stamp Honors Luther

LifeSite News, Jan Bentz: If you happen to receive a piece of mail from the Vatican this year, don’t be surprised to see the face of Martin Luther.

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. More here.

    I believe Padre Pio said Luther is roasting in hell? Perhaps that was but Luther’s purgation, Pio glimpsed, if the saint truly stated so. The wild claims of the schismatics that Papa Frank would canonize Luther on 31 October 2017 would be annoying if less hilarious. Schism happens when we do not obey appropriate authority. Let us be patient in this trial by the Grace of God and permit Queen Humility to reign in our lives. AMEN
