DEDICATION OF THE LATERAN
BASILICA IN ROME
My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The Basilica of St. John Lateran was given to
the church by the Emperor Constantine shortly after he
legalized Christianity in the early fourth century. It
was dedicated as a place of Christian worship on
November 9, 324 CE. It, and not St. Peter’s Basilica,
as many people think, is the cathedral of the city of
Rome and thus the home church of the bishop of
Rome--that is, the pope.
It might seem strange to celebrate the
anniversary of the dedication of somebody else’s
church building. But this feast reminds us that our
communion with the Church of Rome and her bishop,
the pope, is one of the things that unites us in Catholic
Church. In the baptistery of where the church of St.
John Lateran, where the Christians of Rome have been
baptized since the fourth century, there is an ancient
inscription that reads: “There is no barrier between
those who are reborn and made one by the one font,
the one Spirit, and the one faith…” The church asks us
to join in this celebration because those who have
worshiped at St. John Lateran, from the Emperor
Constantine in the fourth century to the humblest
Roman worker worshiping there on this day, are our
brothers and sisters in the Holy Spirit.
This feast reminds us that part of our faith is
that the Church is the temple in which God’s Spirit
dwells. The celebration of this feast is a challenge to
love our fellow Catholics as those who, along with us,
are the stones that are being built into that living
temple. The stones of this temple are bound together
by a love that we live not just inwardly, but also in the
outward forms--church buildings, institutions,
ecclesiastical offices--that make visible our bonds of
unity. It is this unity that we are called to celebrate this
day.
Lord Jesus, your body is a temple built with
living stones. Make your church a faithful witness to
your love in the world by being a worthy dwelling
place for your Spirit.
