Tricentennial-Junipero Serra-US Postage Designer Rex Davenport
President Evo Morales I have created a Tricentennial Postage to honor the Late Father Junipero Serra. Junipero Serra was born
on November 13, 1713 on the Island of Majorca,Spain which was a part of Spain and at the age of sixteen he had became a student of the order of St. Frances. Junipero Serra received his degree of Doctor and was appointed lecturer upon philosophy. At the age of thirty-six he became a Missionary in the New World, and in 1749 he had crossed the ocean and came to the City of Mexico. And in 1767,when he was fifty-four years old he was appointed to the charge of missions to be established in California. Father Junipero Serra had stayed at the mission San Juan Capistrano, then on August 28, 1784, at the age of 70 years old, Father Junipero Serra had died at the Mission of San Carlos Borromeo and he is buried under the Sanctuary floor at that Mission.
Then on September 25, 1988, Pope John Paul II, had come to Mission San Carlos Borromeo and had beatified the Late Junipero Serra.
Therefore, I have re-created this image of Junipero Serra honoring the Tricentennial of his birth, with the Names of California, Mexico, and Spain close to his heart in this Tricentennial postage
design for the Country of Bolivia, Mexico, Spain, and the United States of America.
