Visit of Pope to Lithuania - Set
Visit of Pope to Lithuania - Set for only GBP £0.64
With the consent of the Vatican, after a long break, a limited edition postage stamp is issued for the visit of the Holy Father in Lithuania. The last time Pope’s image was on the postage stamp was 7 years ago, and his official visit to Lithuania was 25 years ago. As the use of the image of the Pontiff is strictly regulated, the postal stamp created by the painter Aušrelė Ratkevičienė was created in accordance with His Holiness image and was in line with the Vatican. Pope Francis (the real name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio) who was elected on 13 March, 2013, is one of the most important world leaders and the moral authority for millions of believers. For a message of hope and encouragement to Europe, contribution to global peace, the values of mercy, tolerance and solidarity, in 2016 he was presented with one of the most honourable awards in the world – Charlemagne Award.
