In this age of creeping secularism, it's always refreshing to see beautiful pictures of the Madonna and Child on Christmas stamps offered by the US Postal Service. Have you ever thought of stocking up on these mini-icons and using them throughout the year?
The late Father Gerard J. Leicht of the Honolulu Diocese founded the Madonna and Child Postal Stamp Project, which recommends that Catholics use these stamps year-round as a simple means of evangelization.
Be sure to buy these early. My local Post Office seems to run out by mid-December. You can also order online at the USPS website.

Catholic Exchange is free—but it is not free to produce. Advertising revenue covers only a fraction of the cost to generate reliably Catholic commentary and news, inspiring videos, a selection of the best Catholic blogs, and daily meditations and prayers.
To give us the strength and stability we need, Catholic Exchange is turning to you—our loyal reader—and asking you to become a monthly contributor.
Whether you can give $5 or $25, $50 or $100 each month, please leave something behind so we can continue—and strengthen—this important apostolate.
We are deeply grateful for one-time gifts, but we encourage you to choose “Monthly” on the drop-down menu. Your support will ensure that Catholic Exchange will be here during this most critical moment for the Church and America.
