In praise of the Vatican's 2022 Christmas stamp

Thank you for including the photo of the new 2022 Vatican Christmas stamps in your Always Forward newsletter.

It’s wonderful how the Vatican chooses unique artists such as Francesco Canale, born without arms or legs, who paints holding a brush between his teeth. What moved me to tears was the way the artist managed to convey deep emotions of joy and astonishment in the two scenes with just a few simple brush strokes.

This artist is truly gifted and was a great choice for 2022.
