Vatican releases 2018 Christmas stamps

By Jim Fair/ zenit.org
: Those who are in prison are often abandoned and given less consideration, but they have always been close to the heart of Pope Francis who has spoken numerous times about their situation. And this year on inmate has received the opportunity to literally makes his mark on Christmas. The theme of prison inmates is important also for the Philatelic Office of Vatican City, especially in recent years, through its participation in philatelic initiatives taking place at the Opera prison in Milan, Italy. A participant in that initiative, inmate Marcello D’Agata, designed this year’s series of Vatican commemorative postage stamps for Christmas. “The inmates are serving a sentence, a sentence for a mistake they have made,” Pope Francis said. “But let us not forget that for punishment to be fruitful...

Meditation of Archbishop Pizzaballa: 32nd Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B

By Most Rev. Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa
: Following is the meditation of the Most Rev. Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, for the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B, November 11, 2018: The passage from today’s Gospel (Mk 12: 38-44) has the temple as its background, where Jesus is found teaching. Here He met various groups of people and with them entered into dialogue, a dialogue that at times was transformed into a diatribe. We are at the end of chapter twelve; chapter thirteen deals with the eschatological discourse, and the story of the Passion begins with chapter fourteen. The picture that we see today in our passage is, therefore, a conclusive picture, the last image that Jesus leaves us in his teaching, and this is why it is particularly important. Actually,...
