READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Luke 23-24
A FEAST OF UNITY
When you think of Rome, what comes to mind? If you are just a tourist, it?s ruins, wine and spaghetti. But if you are a Catholic, it?s the Vatican, St. Peter?s Basilica and the Pope. Not many realize that the Pope, the head of the universal Church, is also bishop of Rome and that his cathedral is not the Vatican. Not many know that the Popes have lived from the fourth to the fourteenth century not in the Vatican but in the Lateran Palace. Because the Lateran Basilica is the cathedral of the bishop of Rome, we commemorate today the dedication of the first Lateran Basilica, which was built by emperor Constantine the Great. This beautiful church is dedicated to the Savior and to St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist. Above the entrance the visitor can read:?Mother and Head of all the Churches in the City and in the World.?
Lord, today I thank You that I belong to the universal Church. I have to admit that I have not thought much of my task to pray and work for the unity of all Christians. Today I join You in your prayer during the Last Supper and pray ?that all may be one.? Help me to contribute to this unity by working for unity in the community where I am placed and offer this effort for the unity of all Christians.
The FEAST is one of the happiest places on earth.
