THE LATERAN BASILICA
We observe the Anniversary of the Dedication of the
Lateran Basilica in Rome. This Basilica, even older than St.
Peter’s or St. Mary Major, gives us another opportunity to
relish the ancient heritage of our Catholic Religion.
But there is more to it than just a building. You will notice
that in two of the Bible readings this week end a building
takes on the character of a person. Paul tells us that we are
God’s building. And Jesus, as we saw in the cartoons, is quick
to compare himself to the Temple in Jerusalem.
And the lesson does not stop there. It is not just a building
that we are celebrating. It is what takes place in that building
that we also celebrate. And that brings us to the vision of the
Prophet Ezechiel. He saw water flowing from the Temple.
Water flowing from the Temple? Yes. That’s right. What is
water in a church used for? Baptism! And not just Baptism
but the other Sacraments. It is in the Temple or in the Church
that the Sacraments are celebrated.
Yes. This is a feast with multiple aspects. The Temple or
the Church, the Sacred Space. The Sacred Space which takes
on the character of a person. And the Temple or the Church in
which God’s Sacraments are conferred.

Saint Leo the Great
Feast day November 10
Only two popes have earned the title Great—Gregory I and
Leo I. Leo was born in the beginning of the fifth century,
probably in Rome. When he was a deacon, other church leaders
looked to him for advice and for explanations of the faith. Leo
was sent to settle arguments between leaders. He was on such a
mission in 440 when he was elected pope. He helped the Church
stay united when it was being attacked inside by false teachers
and outside by warring tribes.
In 452, the Huns, led by Attila, marched toward Rome to
destroy the city. Pope Leo went out to meet Attila and was able
to stop him by agreeing to pay tribute to him every year. Three
years later, another tribe marched on Rome—the Vandals, led by
Genseric. Again Leo went out to meet the enemy, but this time,
Leo was only able to stop the tribe from burning the city. For
two weeks, the Vandals pillaged and looted Rome while the
people sought shelter in the churches. Leo helped rebuild the
city after the invaders departed, and he then sent missionaries to
Africa to minister to those who had been captured and taken
there by the Vandals.
Leo is often remembered for his writings and explanations of
the faith, especially during the Council of Chalcedon in 451. His
words were so powerful that the 600 bishops gathered there felt
they had heard Saint Peter speaking through Leo. Pope Leo the
Great died in 461.
