Pastor’s Notes Jesus makes an important statement in today’s Gospel. What He is in effect saying is “Listen to what the Pharisees say.” Further, by His reference to the “Chair of Moses”, Jesus is saying that they preach with authority and that that authority rests in God. These statements might at first seem strange coming from the mouth of the Lord who seemed so often to be at odds with the Pharisees. But Jesus quickly draws a distinction about what these men say and what they do. The Pharisees would have seemed natural allies of Jesus. He preached many of the same doctrines about the afterlife and the Law that they held. But, while Jesus gives them credit for saying the right things about God, He criticizes the Pharisees for practicing a faith that is mostly for show. Jesus proclaimed last week that the two great commandments of love of God and love of neighbor underlie the Law and the prophets. That love is a total self-giving love. By His specific criticisms of the Pharisees in this week’s reading Jesus seems to be saying that their motivation for practicing the Law as they do is based in a self-love that seeks not the glory of God but the glory of self. They want everyone to know that they keep the Law. They want people to praise them, to fawn over them. They want everyone to think that they keep the Mosaic customs in a way that proves those who do not to be beyond contempt. If they had truly been motivated by love of God and neighbor then they would have spent more time concerned about the welfare of others than about their own personas. Instead of criticizing those who failed, they would have helped them better understand the Law and sought their conversions. Instead of trying to exclude the taxcollectors and sinners they would have worked to bring them back into a right relationship with God. The self-righteous always make out that they are doing more than anyone else in terms of religious observance. The fact is they are actually minimalists who do no more than is necessary to win the praise of others. They fail to keep the very commandments they stress for others because they do all for self rather than act out of love of God and neighbor. They expect to be rewarded for the little they do but never strive to give of themselves. They may well know the truth and even be able to expound it to others but as Jesus showed, in reality it means only as much to them as they can personally gain from it. FATHER TOM

NOVEMBER 5, 2017________ THE GREATEST AMONG US

Whom do you admire? Is it the President of the United States or a movie star or a billionaire? These are people whom the world exalts as great. Like the Pharisees in today’s Gospel, they have places of honor wherever they go. Would you like to follow in their footsteps? The scriptures for today offer different examples for us to follow. Jesus tells us that the greatest among us are the servants. These are the people we are to honor and imitate. We are called to be like Paul, who worked hard to serve the needs of his communities, and Jesus, who gave his life in service to the world. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION What is the name of the pope’s cathedral? If you said the Vatican, or St. Peter’s, you were off by a few miles, since the answer is the Basilica of St. John, the Lateran, the “Mother Church” of all the churches of the world and the cathedral of the Diocese of Rome. It takes its name from the Lateran family, the Trumps of their day, who somehow ran afoul of the Emperor Nero. He seized all their property, including their vast Roman palace and estate. We don’t know how Plautius displeased Nero so badly, but eventually all the Lateran property came to Constantine, the first Christian emperor, through his wife, Fausta. Early in the fourth century, when Christianity was at last legalized, Constantine gave the property to the church. Soon the great meeting halls were expanded and adapted. Over the centuries, the church building has been sacked by armies, ruined by fire, torn down, and rebuilt. The oldest and most unchanged part of the Lateran is a vast, separate baptistery with steps leading down to a huge green basalt pool. Imagine what a triumphal moment the dedication of this public church building was for a community that had worshiped in secret for so long! This Thursday’s feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica is really about the tradition of consecrating space for worship, and so by extension, a feast for your parish church building and, given the beautiful second reading, for its baptistery as well. —Rev.
