Covers and postcards sent to my address from different countries of the world.

Philippines (2015) Pope Francis

PH_pope-Francis_Ralph_2015

Ralph, a very experienced cover collectors from the Philippines, has sent me this perfect cover. He used the series issued on Jan 8, 2015, which commemorates the visit of His Holiness Pope Francis to the Philippines on January 15-19, 2015. The Philatelic bureau of the Philippines (PHL Post) says to this issue. “The spotlight will not be on the person of the Pope but on the communities devastated by “Haiyan”, the strongest typhoon on record, whose destructive path displaced four million people and flattened a million homes. Pictures of survivors, carrying religious images and clutching their rosaries while fleeing in the height of the typhoon’s devastation, are images of faith that have struck a chord in the common humanity that brings the world together in times of tragedy.”

Thank you very much for this perfect cover and stamps!

Hi, my name is Radim, born in a year of Dragon, interested in Botany and loving flags on stamps :). I am collecting nice covers and postcards thaít are addressed to me. And because I love travelling and it is impossible to see all the nice places of the world, I therefore wish to receive covers or/and postcards from as many countries as possible. Just to "touch" the distant places virtually :-).
