Feast of the Dedication of the Lateran
Basilica . . . Today's Feast takes the place of the
32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, since it signifies a
most important part of the History of the Catholic
Church. The Basilica of St. John Lateran is the
"Mother Church" of all the churches of the world
and the Cathedral of the Diocese of Rome. In a
sense this Feast reminds us of the Holy Place our
own churches have become for us...where we
gather, worship, receive Christ, and find strength
in our time together as the "Living Stones" of the
Church. Up until Jesus' time, worship of God
was associated with a place, the temple in
Jerusalem. In today's Gospel Jesus identifies
himself as the "temple", thus shifting the focus of
our worship from a place to a person. It is well to
remember this in a time of shifting demographics
and reconfiguring parishes. As precious as our
church buildings are to us, the Church is more
than bricks and mortar. Question: "How do I
witness to being a 'Temple" of the living God to
others?"
The National Evangelization Team (NET) will be
at St. John's Parish this Sunday to conduct a Retreat
for our REFF 7-12 grade students . . . This Team is
made of 12 men and women (college age and older),
one of 9 Teams traveling throughout the Country and
beyond, bringing the good news of God's love to youth
and carrying out the work of evangelization in today's
world. The theme of the Retreat, which begins
immediately after Mass/Lunch until 4:00pm is “You
Will Receive Power” and is designed to stir up the
grace of the Holy Spirit given in Baptism and
Confirmation; even though these Sacraments were
received many years ago. The NET Team will remain
in New Rockford until Tuesday morning and then
travel to Texas where they will be doing the Work of
the Lord with youth there. Please remember to pray
for the Retreat today and special thanks to the many
people who are hosting the Team and providing meals
for them while here.
Scripture Readings for next Sunday: Proverbs
31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6;
Matthew 25:14-30.
Bishop Folda's "Letter of Gratitude" . . . is
attached to today's bulletin, in which the Bishop also
shares his reaction to the defeat of the Measure #I
Human Life Amendment proposal this past Tuesday. I
wish to add my own personal thanks to all who helped in
any way to pass this Amendment (signs/prayers/booth
displays/conversations with people). We must continue
to work with our bishops and pro-life people in building
a culture of life in ND and throughout the world.
God Bless You!
