cameras for the property as well as new slurry and
striping for the parking lot. We can use at least another

Confirmation next spring. Since 2010 I have been VP of

Evangelio de San Juan 2, 13-22
Hoy como la semana pasada celebramos una fiesta
diferente a los domingos ordinarios. La semana pasada fue
la fiesta de todos los santos, hoy la dedicación de la
Basílica de San Juan de Letrán. Es la única Iglesia que
celebramos su dedicación.
¿Porque celebrar un edificio? Primero por su importancia
histórica, fue la primera Catedral de Roma y del Papa; en
ella se tuvieron importantes concilios ecuménicos. Su
dedicación señaló el paso de la salida de la asamblea
cristiana de las catacumbas al esplendor de las Basílicas
(lugar de reunión del pueblo romano).
Cristo viene a limpiar su templo que es nuestro cuerpo,
nuestra alma y nuestro espíritu, no tengas miedo que saque
a latigazos los que se han adueñado de su templo, los que
se han apropiado del lugar que le corresponde, el lugar que
habita desde el día de nuestro bautismo.
Tú y yo somos, hermanos ese edificio en el cual Dios
quiere que acontezcan cosas importantes, somos seres
históricos y Dios actúa en la historia de cada uno de
nosotros que uniendo nuestras historias construimos un
único edificio donde Dios actúa y es su Iglesia.
P. Sergio
