The Basilica of St. John Lateran, Mother of All Churches
We celebrate today the Dedication of the Basilica of St.
John Lateran in Rome because it is the head and mother
church of all churches in the world. On the façade of the
basilica there is an inscription in Latin which reads, “the
mother and mistress of all churches in Rome and the
world.” One might think St. Peter’s Basilica is the head of
all the churches but in fact it is the Basilica of St. John
Lateran. Every bishop has a cathedral and the Pope’s
cathedral is the Basilica of St. John Lateran not the Basilica
of St. Peter. As we celebrate the dedication today let us
pray also for those who have gotten lost going through
life that they may find the Church as a true mother and
that Jesus may become the foundation stone and the
corner stone of their lives. - Copyright @ Fr. Tommy Lane 2013

For several weeks, we have considered penance as a sacrament of forgiveness,
and yet there are two other sacraments in this
category. The first, of course, is the Eucharist itself. The
other is the sacrament of the sick, long associated with penance.
The Letter of James sets out the deep tradition for
caring for the sick: sending for the priests, who will pray and
lay their hands on the sick ones, anointing them with oil,
and giving them forgiveness. Long before other rites of
penance developed, the sacrament of the sick was therefore a profound experience of forgiveness of sin. The tradition didn’t unfold smoothly, however, and within a few centuries the oil of the sick was taken home to be applied by
caregivers as a salve, or even to be drunk as a medicine.
As early as the second century, bishops were therefore urging that priests should be the ones to visit those separated
by illness from the Sunday assembly. Thus the practice of
consigning the Eucharist and the oil of the sick to the nonordained faithful to bring home was relatively short-lived.
