Commemorative stamps issued

On June 23 a stamp featuring the Founder of Opus Dei was put into circulation in Poland as part of a series entitled “the work ethic.” The stamp shows a portrait of Blessed Josemaria against a background alluding to work. The issue totaled four hundred thousand units.

Three days later, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the death of Blessed Josemaria, the Spanish Postal Service placed in circulation a stamp dedicated to the Founder of Opus Dei. The presentation of this philatelic issue took place in Madrid on June 26 before a large gathering that included the mayors of Madrid and Barbastro among other officials.

Previous commemorative stamps dedicated to Blessed Josemaria have been issued in Venezuela, Peru, Colombia and Ecuador. In Honduras a commemorative issue took place on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of Opus Dei.
