Mother Teresa Stamp

Posted by Alex Colao on September 10, 2010

Dear Catholic Vote Friend,
“This is incredible.” Those are the words of a Director with the United States Postal Service after being told that over 146,000 people signed our petition in support of the Mother Teresa stamp. This is truly inspiring. I am happy to report that I will be on hand to represent you and CatholicVote at the formal introduction of the Mother Teresa stamp on Sunday. The Postal Service will unveil the stamp at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., exactly 13 years after Mother Teresa died on September 5, 1997. Your efforts have proved the power of CatholicVote’s grassroots activism! We refused to stay silent while a small, but very vocal minority tried to stop the celebration of this amazing and holy nun. As we said at the time our petition was launched, “Not this time. Not with Mother Teresa.”
Let’s show the Postal Service how much enthusiasm there is for Mother Teresa. The stamp goes on sale nationwide on Tuesday, September 7. Don’t forget to visit your local post office next week and buy lots of Mother Teresa stamps! Thank you again for all your efforts in making this effort such a big success.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe Labor Day weekend,

Brian Burch, President – CatholicVote Civic Action
