Brothers and sisters: You are God's building.

I have chosen and consecrated this house, says the Lord, that my name may be there forever.

Shortly after my conversion and return to the sacraments I had a dream of angels constructing a church - Fra Angelico style angels - busy placing stone upon stone to frame a Romanesque window.  I knew it was a reflection of my soul.  I knew it was a literal interpretation of today's readings for the Feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica.

Very early on, I was given the prayer of recollection.  So no matter what happens in the world, in the Church, I know what St. Paul said in his Leter to the Romans:
Do you not know that you are the temple of God,and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
