This year marks the 150th anniversary of the creation of the International Telecommunicatio
StampNews.com got to know that the Philatelic and Numismatic Office has produced a 2.15 euro postage stamp to mark this anniversary. The stamps feature a detail of the "Creation of Adam", the celebrated image of the finger of God reaching out to give life to man, painted by Michelangelo in his frescoes of the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
Digital and modern telecommunicatio
Pope Francis recently observed that "communication is ultimately a human rather than technological achievement". "Those who communicate, in effect, become neighbours", but the Christian who draws closer to others, as in the parable of the Good Samaritan, always shows mercy and compassion. In this sense, when communication and new technologies offer humanity greater possibilities for encounter and solidarity, this is something truly good and a gift from God.
