The cathedral was full - the choir seats filled by uniformed police officers - but it was silent as the microphone was lowered for the little boy. Ten-year-old Jonathan Navarro looked out at the hundreds of officers seated before him to mourn his uncle, LAPD Officer Christopher A. Cortijo, and began speaking directly to the fallen officer. "Uncle Chris, I will always remember you," he said. "You took your time with me and treated me with tough love. You are my hero. " Hundreds of people gathered in downtown Los Angeles early Tuesday to pay their final respects to Cortijo, a Los Angeles Police Department motorcycle officer who died earlier this month after being struck by a driver suspected of being under the influence of cocaine.

The Catholic Athletic Association voted Tuesday to add Cathedral to a four-team league made up of Loyola, Bishop Amat and Gardena Serra for football only. Previously, Salesian was in the league but won an appeal, forcing the CAA to take another vote. The league is expected to be in the Pac-5 Division. Cathedral was selected over St. Francis. The other likely Pac-5 Division league will be made up of Alemany, Notre Dame, Crespi and Chaminade. Cathedral will appeal to the Southern Section Council on April 30, football Coach Kevin Pearson said.

Re the new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels: That ain't a cathedral. That's the box cathedrals come in. Lloyd Petre Long Beach

Bill Wolfe's railing against the money spent on the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, when it could have been spent on the poor, parallels the Gospels, including Matthew 26:6-13 (Letters, Sept. 29). In the Gospels, a woman uses expensive oils to wash and consecrate the feet of Jesus. This act outraged the Apostles, saying that the money spent for the oils should have been spent on the poor. Jesus replied that the poor will always be with us, but there are times when men and women need to spend money to consecrate God in our humanly ways.

Who is to say what Mary looked like? Nobody really knows (Letters, Sept. 8, 15). We all are used to the conventions used to depict her--flowing robes, covered head, downcast eyes and sad expression. Is this really how she dressed, or is this how we imagine she dressed? Or did she look like the Mary in Notre Dame in Paris, with crown on head, body-hugging dress, body in Gothic s-curve pose with baby Jesus on hip? She looks decidedly medieval French in that statue. In other words, those who built Notre Dame put her in their own time, just as Robert Graham did with his Mary.

Dawn broke high in the Colorado Rockies, the enormous blot on the horizon revealing itself slowly, regally against an indigo sky. I dropped my pack on the frozen tundra, overcome by awe and a taut, primal fear. Before me stood cathedral upon cathedral of stone, a mysterious citadel crisscrossed by narrow ledges and vertical walls lashed by fierce winds. This was the sheer eastern face of Longs Peak, a 14,259-foot fortress of rock that had recently killed three climbers and has sent hundreds more scurrying in retreat.

Cardinal Roger Mahony's personal tour of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels gives new meaning to the word "grandiosity" ("Mahony Shares His Delight at a Dream Made Manifest," Aug. 28). With each of Mahony's breathless descriptions, I was taken back to Jackie Kennedy's gushy televised tour of the White House during her stint as first lady. In a city plagued by a host of human tragedies resulting from poverty, among other ills, it's comforting to know that someone like Mahony can still find a place for high camp.

The right to worship without fear or retribution is one of our country's most cherished freedoms. On June 26, a protester from the Survivors Network of Those Abused By Priests entered the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels and handcuffed himself to the archbishop's chair in the sanctuary. The disruption disturbed a sacred service and frightened many among the thousands gathered to pray. His action is a crime under California law. It was not, as SNAP leaders have tried to spin it, a simple exercise of civil rights.

The New Canaan, Conn., home of the architect who designed the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove will open for tours next month, but best to keep an eye on his Glass House because it could disappear. The Glass House , designed by noted architect Philip Johnson , was true to its name but for one thing: It had  a brick-enclosed bathroom. Johnson's house was completed in 1949, and the noted architect used his Connecticut home, about 50 miles northeast of New York, as a retreat from workaday pressures.

Though the Rev. Robert H. Schuller was the face of the once-global "Hour of Power" television ministry, he was never alone. His wife, Arvella, was always behind the scenes, working to make sure everything ran smoothly. Arvella Schuller, who served as a producer of the television show and was one of the main creative forces of the Crystal Cathedral, died Tuesday at UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange after a brief illness. She was 84. In a statement, her grandson, Bobby V. Schuller, said she died "peacefully of natural causes.

 Since he started playing basketball in Brazil when he was 9, 6-foot-10 Lucas Siewert remembers being enthralled with the three-point shot. "When I first started playing, I'd always go to the third-point line," he said. The sophomore at L.A. Cathedral sure learned his lessons well. He made five three-pointers on Wednesday to help the Phantoms improve to 18-2 and virtually lock up the Camino Real League title with a 71-50 home win over Cantwell-Sacred Heart. He finished with 15 points.

Cardinal Roger Mahony now has the rare opportunity to make the new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels the most important attraction in all of Los Angeles. Now that the pageantry and the formalities are over, along with the elitism that accompanied the opening ceremonies, it is time to turn the cathedral over to the ordinary people to whom it rightly belongs. One should look to those cathedrals that draw thousands of worshipers and tourists almost daily to their sites, and we can easily duplicate their commonality.

Re "Cathedral to Tap Solar Power for Electricity," Aug. 16: It strikes me as incredible that the $600,000 solar panel will only generate 10% to 15% of the electricity for Cardinal Roger Mahony's cathedral. It is reported that the solar panels will generate 66 kilowatts, an amount equivalent to the power used by 66 single-family homes. By that figuring, the cathedral's electric needs are equivalent to at least 500 single-family homes. While I applaud the efforts of large organizations to go (partly)

Letterman jackets are considered so retro that some high school athletes are hesitant to be seen wearing one. But don't tell that to L.A. Cathedral soccer standout Axel Mendez, who proudly walks around campus wearing his jacket filled with patches testifying to accomplishments, from being All-Southern Section to being a scholar-athlete. It's part of a high school sports experience that he refuses to abandon at a time when other elite players in the Southern California soccer world are choosing a different path.

 Cantwell-Sacred Heart's gym was filled to capacity on Friday night for its Camino Real League showdown against L.A. Cathedral. There were some 600 fans packed together, and Cathedral fans left home feeling good. The Phantoms (11-1) received 15 points from Ifeoluwa Kalejaiye, 12 from Jerome Bryant and 10 from Lorel Johnson in a 54-47 road victory over Cantwell-Sacred Heart (13-3), ranked No. 9 by The Times. Although Coach William Middlebrooks was insisting afterward his team was not an Open Division playoff team, that might not be the case come February.
