You know your a Catholic nerd when...

This and little known facts like it are far more interesting to you than they should be.

I mean, who knew the titular feast of the Lateran Basilica came right after the feast of the dedication of St Mary Major? Also, until reading that I almost forgot that each of the patriarchal basilicas actually represents an ancient patriarchate (St. Peter's Basilica is actually representative of the patriarchate of Constantinople where the pope's proper church is really the Lateran Basilica which is the cathedral for the Diocese of Rome...this is why the dedication (different from titular feast) of St. John Lateran is actually a solemnity)
