Today we celebrate the great Feast of the Dedication of St. John Lateran Basilica, which is the Pope’s cathedral church. It’s a time to remember that while the Church is, properly speaking, the people of God, church buildings do nevertheless matter. They are meant to recapitulate the Temple, the New Jerusalem, Noah’s Ark, and the Mystical Body of Jesus.
