A Philatelic Gift from Poland
I am very glad to receive this philatelic gift yesterday from Andrzej P., a philatelist friend who comes from faraway Poland, the birthplace of the soon to be saint John Paul II. These John Paul II philatelic items released by the Polish Post Office on different dates are a welcome addition to my Pope John Paul II philatelic collection.
These materials will definitely be included in a new stamp and photo exhibit I will be presenting for Cebu Stamp Club immediately after the Pope's canonization this year.
More photos at Cebu Stamp Club's official Facebook page.
In return, I sent him philatelic items issued by the Philippine Postal Corporation featuring Pope John Paul II, San Pedro Calungsod and other Catholic-themed issues.
