The true basilica (Th/31/II)

Jerusalem, Notre Dame, 9th November 2006

 

The feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome

Jesus speaks about the temple of his body.
Saint Paul speaks about human beings who are  the temple of God.
In both cases the holiness of  these temples is priceless.
You are God’s building. You are the temple of God!
If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person.

 Look at the mirror! You see the temple of God.
Look at your neighbour! You see the God’s temple.
If we kneel in the church, we should kneel before human being.
If Jesus can destroy the Jerusalem temple to raise up the temple of his body it means that one human being is more important than holiest place in Jerusalem.

If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person.
Saint Paul doesn’t frighten us. Saint Paul only reminds about the worth of human being.
This is a good news. The Lateran Basilica even though is beautiful and great  is less precious than one man even he is dying on AIDS.
