The Philatelic and Numismatic Office of the Vatican has announced a new series of collection stamps – Great Heretics.

The new series will start off in 2017 with everyone’s favorite heretic Martin Luther to memorialize 500 years of schism. Catholics are now able to hear Luther’s challenge for the Church of today, recognising him as a “witness to the gospel” – a statement recently made by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.

Just when you thought the Catholic Church couldn’t lick Protestantism, you can now lick a Protestant.

Future stamps in this very collectable series will feature Mar Nestorius who was condemned by the Council of Ephesus in 431.

Plus who can forget Fr. Arius whose theology brought about the First Council of Nicaea,

Three great heretics bringing about three great councils – order yours today.

Caveat LifeSiteNews says they confirmed the Martin Luther stamp with the Philatelic and Numismatic Office. Still I am dubious since they are often not a reliable source. Yet at this stage nothing would surprise me.

  1. The more things change, the more they stay the same and/or should “IT” be simply said that The Times they are a changing?


    Let’s keep praying that GOD (Good Old Dad) will set US (USUAL SINNERS) on the straight and narrow Way to His Only Begotten Son “Jesus Christ”.

    God Bless all His Children

  2. Not fair Victor. Your writing is far better than mine but I love IT and will keep trying this hunt and peck with this computer. Some of the stuff on the internet does mean lots of changes happen. The only stamps I’ll buy will only have flowers or pets. The Lord’s blessing be on you and Jeff.
