This aerial shot gives a great view of the cruciform design of the Lateran Basilica in Rome.
November 9 is the
Feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome.
Yet again, a feast on the liturgical calendar trumps the regular Sunday scriptures and prayers (which would have been the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time). This is the third time this fall that such a switch has occurred - do you remember the first two? (Answer in the combox!)
Here are the scriptures and background materials for this weekend's liturgy. If you're wondering what's so important about this particular church building that it has its own day - take a look here and here.
Got kids? Here's some helpful info for preparing them to hear the Word at Mass this Sunday.
