From the Pastor’s Desk...
The Basilica* of Saint John Lateran is the
Mother Church of all the churches in the
(western) world and the Cathedral of the
Diocese of Rome.
We commemorate its
dedication as a way of honoring all the consecrated churches
of the world.** But we must heed the words of Saint Paul, You
are God’s building, and today remember that by our baptism
each of us is consecrated to God’s service.
Mother and Head of All the Churches of the City and of
the World. This inscription proclaims the Lateran Basilica’s
pre-eminence as cathedral parish of the Bishop of Rome, the
Pope. Our communion, our unity in faith, as a diocese and
parish with the Church of Rome and with the worldwide
Roman Catholic Church prompts the celebration of today’s
dedication anniversary (original church 324 A.D; rebuilt 1726)
in every Roman Catholic place of worship throughout the
world, from grandest cathedral to remotest mission.
The water Ezekiel sees is, of course, God’s creation and
gift. But its life-giving streams flow from the temple (through
the Church) to rejuvenate a parched earth whose fountain of
wisdom, life, hope and love have stagnated. Wherever the
river flows, trees blossom with nourishing fruit and healing
leaves, recalling the Church’s long service as God’s
instrument in every corner of the world, and our baptismal
challenge to become The Temple of God.
We are such living temples, because Jesus is God’s
Temple, raising those baptized into His death. Thus, while we
honor our churches as sacred spaces dedicated to the
worship of God and service to our neighbor, the Living Church
is the Holy People of God. Since November’s liturgy recalls
Christ’s coming as Judge, His cleansing of the temple is an
appropriate Gospel today, reminding us of our continual need
of purification, lest we become a marketplace cluttered with
the traffic of worldly profit and gain, rather than the holy
dwelling place of God’s Spirit.
* The Latin word basilica...has three distinct applications in modern English. The
word was originally used to describe an open, Roman, public court building,
usually located adjacent to the forum of a Roman town. By extension it was
applied to Christian buildings of the same form and continues to be used in an
architectural sense to describe those buildings with a central nave and aisles.
Later, the term came to refer specifically to a large and important church that
has been given special ceremonial rights by the Pope.
** Holy Family Cathedral has never been consecrated.
Centennial of Holy Family Cathedral
All parishioners are invited to view Anchorage's Centennial
website and Facebook page. "We have arrived," so to speak.
Any of our parishioners who would remember the "good ol'
days" are asked to contribute to the Centennial website under
"Family Albums." Fr. Augustine can help you submit photos
you may have. http://anchoragecentennial.org/then-and-now
Respect for Life
Advance Medical Directives (part 1)
We should be prepared for those difficult
situations when medical decisions must be
made. We can safeguard our Catholic values by
appointing a trustworthy person now, to make
decisions for us, in the event that we are incapable of doing
so, either physically or mentally. We need to be aware of the
different medical documents available or often used to define
a patient’s care. Depending on how they are crafted, some
documents can be counter to Catholic morality and are more
harmful than we might realize.

Dear Friends in Christ:
Next weekend, we will hold the annual collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human
Development (CCHD). Since its inception, CCHD has contributed over $280 million to more
than 7,800 low-income-led projects fighting the roots of income inequality and bettering the lives
of the 46.2 million Americans living below the poverty-line.
In addition to providing relief to the poor by creating jobs and providing access to affordable
housing, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development also invests in initiatives empowering
individuals to take control of their futures and communities. CCHD seeks to not just treat the
outward appearance of poverty but to break the cycle altogether.
Of the total funds raised, 25% will be invested back in the local community. You can give with
confidence that a significant portion of your donation will be used to assist those affected by
poverty living in the Archdiocese of Anchorage. By prayerfully giving to this collection, you can
help your brothers and sisters in Christ both across the country and right next door.
Thank you for your support of this important collection.
Sincerely yours in Christ and Mary,
†Roger L. Schwietz, OMI
Archbishop of Anchorage
