Dedication of the St. John Lateran Basilica in Rome

This basilica was dedicated by Pope St. Silvester in 324. It is the Pope's church and is considered, "the mother and mistress of all churches of Rome and the world." This feast is a sign of love and union with the See of Peter. Information taken from Catholic Culture. To learn more about this feast or the Basilica go here.
