On the occasion of the apostolic visit that Benedict XVI is preparing to make to the United Kingdom (September 16-19), the Vatican Post Office is issuing two special postage stamps.  The first, showing portraits of the pope and of cardinal John Henry Newman, commemorates the visit strictly speaking.  The second, which reproduces two other portraits of Benedict and the new Blessed, commemorates the beatification which will be celebrated in Birmingham on September 19.  (Source: VIS - DICI no. 221 dated September 18, 2010)
