Bulletin Shorts for the Feast of The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica

The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica, Feast – Wednesday, 09 November 2022

Ezekiel 47:1-2, 8-9, 12.  Psalm 46:2, 3, 5-6, 8, 9.  1 Corinthians 3:9c-11, 16-17.  John 2:13-22.

Why Are Churches Important?  Today we celebrate the dedication (setting aside for holy action) of the cathedral church of the Diocese of Rome – Saint John Lateran.  It reminds us that we set aside church buildings as places for the Church, the People of God, to pray and worship.  The building is important only because the People whom God has chosen are more important.

  • How will I revel today in being part of the holy People of God, the Church?

Use this prayer card to be ever mindful of the Works of Mercy.
