Paschal Baylón OFM (1540-1592) was a Spanish Roman Catholic lay professed religious of the Order of Friars Minor noted for his strict austerities, as well as his love for and compassion towards the sick, who was canonized in 1690. Here is an image of a stamp commemorating the declaration of Saint Paschal Baylón as the patron saint of the International Eucharistic Congress, printed by photogravure, and issued by Spain on September 24, 1997, Scott No. 2909, plus an image of a painting of Saint Paschal Baylón praying.

Here are images of the six stamps in a set commemorating the 19th centenary of the arrival of Saint Paul (5 BC - 64 AD) on Malta as the result of a shipwreck in c. 60 AD, designed by Emvin V. Cremona (1919-1987), printed by photogravure, and issued by Malta on February 9, 1960, Scott Nos. 275-80. Notes: The first three stamps in this set were designed after frescoes by Italian painter Attilio Palombi (fl. 1883-1898). Also, on March 27, 2016 I previously posted an image of a used example of the first stamp in this set on page 3 of this thread.
