Dear loving friends,
There is a time for everything in our lives. Here I come to request your valuable
presence for the occasion of my Mom’s Memorial Mass on the 15th of this month,
this coming Saturday. I have previously shared with you about how close I remain to
my Mom and my great sadness regarding her death. It is a blessing, friends, to be
with you to celebrate the Holy Eucharist for my Mom. I also hope that one of our
Bishops will be joining us for this celebration. I realize that this will require much
preparation by the Women’s Group and Social Committee members…please do
your best.
I wish to express a word of thanks to all
those parents who worked hard preparing their children for the All
Saints Parade. You had to bring your children early, get them
dressed and so on…I was really impressed by how well prepared
the children were and how seriously they took the responsibility of
telling us about their saint. Thank you, parents and loving children...please keep up the good work.
The month of November is a special time for us to remember
and pray for our loved ones who have left this life. Let us keep
them in our life and prayers, cherishing the best they have given to
us.
The main theme of this weekend’s readings is the warning that, as baptized Christians, we are temples of God where the Spirit of God, the real source of all our spiritual blessings, resides. We should not
desecrate this temple of God by sin. When I look at the historical background of this feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome (the Pope’s cathedral – the mother of all the churches in the city of
Rome and in the world – and their head) I realize it was started on November 9th, 324AD by Pope St.
Sylvester. Every Bishop has a Cathedral and the Pope’s Cathedral is the Basilica of St. John Lateran, not
the Basilica of St. Peter.
The first and second readings today remind us to make Jesus the foundation stone and the cornerstone
of our lives because if we do, there is a life-giving river flowing from Him that will fill us with His
grace. Today’s Gospel gives us the dramatic account of Jesus as He cleansed the Temple of Jerusalem
by driving out the merchants and the moneychangers, followed by the prediction of His own death and
Resurrection. As we take the responsibility for our own Church with respect and reverence let us remember that our body is a Temple of the Holy Spirit and may we keep it holy for the good Lord.
Blessings to all…

“Looks towards Rome”
(Ezekiel 47:1-12; 1 Corinthians
3:9-17; John 2:13-22)
Pope Pius IX was elected June 16,
1846, about three months before the
Blessed Virgin appeared at La
Salette. He reigned for well over 31
years (six years more than John
Paul II), and was certainly familiar
with the La Salette event and message.
His was a troubled time. The unification of Italy
was taking place and Italian leaders like Garibaldi
were insisting that Rome must be the capital. But
that city was the last vestige of what had been
the “Papal States.” For it to become the capital of
the new Italy, it would have to be taken by force
of arms. And so it was.
For a long time afterward, hostility towards the
papacy proved most unsettling for Catholics
worldwide. This concern is reflected in a Litany of
Our Lady of La Salette composed in the latter
1800’s, where one of the invocations reads, “By
thy mysterious looks towards Rome, make us
more and more devoted to the Holy See, O
Mary.”
What “looks towards Rome,” you ask? Well, just
before Mary left the children, she rose up in the
air, looked up to the sky, then down to the earth,
facing southeast. Given the political and religious
climate, it was easy to interpret this to mean she
was looking towards Rome, showing concern for
the papacy. This perception was strong enough
that at one point the Missionaries of Our Lady of
La Salette wondered if they should take a vow of
fidelity to the Holy See.
Today we celebrate the dedication of the Pope’s
Cathedral, not St. Peter’s, but St. John Lateran,
the “Lateran Basilica,” the oldest church in the
West. This is really a celebration of our Catholicism rather than of a building.
St. Paul writes that we are “God’s building.” and
“the temple of God, which is holy.” Mary expresses this idea by appealing to her “People” to
become Catholics in more than name, to do
something about the frail state of their faith.
Nothing she would like better than for us to make
our own the words of Psalm 122, “I rejoiced when
I heard them say, “Let us go to the house of the
Lord’”—not just a place, but a way of life.
