DEDICATION OF THE LATERNAL BASILICA IN ROME
NOVEMBER 9, 2014
Dear Friends,
The Ordinary Time of the Church year continues but this weekend we will celebrate a different kind of
feast. It is the Feast of the Dedication of St John Lateran Basilica. The Basilica is the “Mother Church” of all
the Churches of the world and the Cathedral of the Diocese of Rome. The Church itself goes back to the time of
Emporer Constantine in the 4th Century. It’s name honors John the Baptist and John the Evangelist and also a
wealthy Christian family. Pilgrims who visit Rome are encouraged to visit this Basilica as well as the Churches
dedicated to the Blessed Mother, St Paul and obviously the most familiar St Peter’s Basilica. The Church
encourages us to celebrate the Dedication of this Sacred Basilica also as a way of honoring all the consecrated
Churches of the world, including our own. The scriptures of the feast highlight the importance of the Temple in
biblical times and also that Jesus identified himself as the temple, shifting the focus of our worship from a place
to a person. St Paul takes another step in saying that we, the believers, are God’s Building.
This week, a year from now, will be our Parish Pilgrimage to Italy. Six years ago, on our first trip to
Rome, our hotel was walking distance from the Lateran Basilica. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and hadn’t
gone to Mass. Some of our group needed a nap from the overnight flight. Some others of us walked to the
Lateran Basilica for Mass. Mass was in Italian in the ancient Church, but it was nice to greet so many familiar
faces at the sign of peace and join them in line for Holy Communion. It was a good start to a memorable trip.
Over fifty folks are already signed up for next year’s trip.
Father Mark Hunt is only available to have one Mass for us on the weekend. I’m happy to be able to get
two other priests for one Sunday each month. Father John Donia, the School Minister at Archbishop Ryan High
School will be with us this Sunday for the 10 and also monthly throughout the year. Father Bernard Farley,
Chaplain at St John Neumann Nursing Home has also agreed to be with us for the 8 once a month. I’m happy to
be able to get good priests to be with us and give you a break from me once in awhile.
Two good retired priests of the Archdiocese recently died-- Father John Fitzgerald and Msgr. James
Howard. Father Fitzgerald recently lived at St Anselm and among other things was a founder of a Bereavement
group in the Archdiocese called To Live Again. He was an inspiration for the beginnings of bereavement
ministry in so many parishes including our own. Msgr Howard was Rector of the Cathedral for many years. He
also taught at Cardinal Dougherty High School in my time and later was Principal there. I was scared to death
of him as a teacher. In later years he was very good to me and often came here for confessions for our school
children and also First Penance Services. Msgr Howard was also well known by many Philadelphia Police
officers as their Chaplain.
Archbishop Chaput had a meeting last week with all the Catholic School teachers of the Archdiocese---high school and grade school alike. He took the occasion to introduce a Pastoral letter of his addressed to the
whole Archdiocese on Catholic Education and Faith Formation called “Equipping Saints”. Besides naming
changes that have happened in the Archdiocese recently, the letter also addresses parishes and parents
concerning their role in Catholic Education and Faith Formation. Take some time to read the letter. It is
available at www.CatholicPhilly.com.
We had a unique presentation on the Saints last Sunday for our CCD children and their families. The
presentation by The Spoon Man was a good time for all as well as passing on a healthy religious message.
I’m grateful for the continuing response to the Fall Appeal. It’s a most important collection for the life of
the parish. You’ve also received a mailing concerning the Annual Seminary Appeal. We will have a seminarian
with us next week promoting the Appeal.
Hope many of you were at our Christmas Bazaar. Special thanks to the Ladies Auxiliary for coordinating
the efforts of so many volunteers
