The Seattle Mariners, the only team in professional baseball that has never had a winning season, have started a campaign to get religion out of the clubhouse. "We have too many (players) who think that if we lose, that's the way the Lord meant it to be," said team General Manager Dick Balderson, who was interviewed while in Boston for the World Series. "Changes have to be made, with the idea that when they come to the park they will be thinking baseball." Reliever Matt Young agrees.

The image of bandit Jesus Malverde turns up as a kind of venerated saint inside " Quitapesares (Solace)," a makeshift chapel by artist Maria Romero erected near the end of a large new exhibition at the UCLA Fowler Museum. On May 3, 1909, the outlaw was hanged from a tree in the town of Culiacán, capital of Sinaloa near the country's northwest coast, by the federal government of Mexican dictator Porfirio Diaz. He was left to rot in the sun. At least, that's what people say. Historians have found no evidence that the story is true.

Desperate to find your great-grandmother's wedding ring -- the one you lost while cleaning house one day? You might try asking St. Anthony, the patron saint of lost items, to help. Or take your plea one step further and visit the good friar's Colima, Mexico , chapel, which will turn 100 on June 13, St. Anthony's Day. The chapel, at Hacienda de San Antonio , an upscale resort in Mexico's highlands, was established in 1913 when the nearby Colima Volcano threatened to destroy the area.

OAKLAND -- Tis the season to be jolly? Not so much with the Clippers and Golden State Warriors. Though the Clippers will play the Warriors in Oakland on Christmas night, don't expect the teams to be full of good tidings toward each other because in the past year there has been more acrimony than kindness. The teams couldn't even hold chapel service together when the Clippers played host to the Warriors on Halloween Night at Staples Center. Golden State was angry, saying this violated the NBA custom of teams holding chapel service together, calling it a spiteful gesture by Los Angeles.

Bob Cox says he thinks the military officers who contributed to the construction of the chapel at the Naval Hospital in Balboa Park almost 48 years ago would be proud of what it has become today. Granted, the chapel, which now has no pews, looks a little different than when it was built to meet the spiritual needs of servicemen at the hospital. But even so, Cox says, the founders would be glad that the actual building looks the same and is still in the military family.

Every Sunday morning, Robert Richard begins his call to worship. He moves through the restaurant at the Truckstops of America, where the tired drivers are hunched over their plates of grits and eggs--still for just a moment after maneuvering 80,000 pounds of vehicle through the dark, lonesome night. Some of the truckers pointedly ignore Richard--they do not want his message of Jesus and patience and love.

A Los Angeles County prosecutor of some of the Manson case defendants, Stephen Kay, complained that two of them, Charles (Tex) Watson and Bruce Davis, are getting "special privileges" working in the chapel in the California state prison at San Luis Obispo. Some fellow inmates also were criticizing Watson for using his position as minister and counselor at the Protestant chapel to order administrative discipline against those who object to his teachings.

In his church office, pastor Chuck Smith kept a crown made of thorns and a jar full of candy. The thorns were from the Holy Land. The candy was for his grandkids. The image suggested his special appeal as a preacher: A harsh, old-school Christianity delivered with grandfatherly sweetness. Smith, the founder of the Jesus People and the Calvary Chapel movement, and one of the most influential figures in modern American Christianity, died Thursday morning at his home in Newport Beach after a two-year battle with lung cancer, church officials said.

VATICAN CITY -- In his first mass as head of the Roman Catholic church, Pope Francis delivered a stern homily in the Sistine Chapel, where cardinals had elected him as the 266th pope a day earlier. Stressing the power of prayer, Francis told the cardinals, "He who does not pray to the Lord prays to the devil. When we don't proclaim Jesus Christ, we proclaim the worldliness of the devil, the worldliness of the demon. " LIVE DISCUSSION: Join our live video chat at 2 p.m. PT Standing before Michelangelo's fresco of the "Last Judgment," the new pontiff added, "When we walk without the cross, when we build without the cross and when we proclaim Christ without the cross, we are not disciples of the Lord.

VATICAN CITY -- Looking solemn at the task before them, senior prelates of the Roman Catholic Church filed into the Sistine Chapel and locked themselves in Tuesday afternoon to begin the process of voting for a new pope under conditions of utmost secrecy. The 115 cardinals swore oaths on the Bible to keep their proceedings confidential and are now allowed to communicate with the outside world only through smoke signals, from a chimney on the chapel roof, to signify the outcome of the balloting.

Tourists visiting the Sistine Chapel next Christmas can expect a slightly different experience than in years or centuries past, one that just might send chills up their spine. On their way in to see Michelangelo's masterpiece, visitors will step into an area with stronger air conditioning and a new vaccum-cleaning system that sucks up dust from their clothes. Antonio Paolucci, director of the Vatican Museums, told Lauretta Colonnelli of the Corriere della Sera newspaper that he plans to renovate existing climate controls and install the new cleaning system by the end of 2013.

On Wednesday the Vatican celebrated the 500th anniversary of Michelangelo's completion of the ceiling frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, an epic extravaganza of painting that the artist, who considered himself a sculptor first, undertook only grudgingly in 1508. Pope Benedict XVI marked the occasion with the celebration of Vespers, replicating the event on the eve of All Saints' Day in which Pope Julius II first unveiled the masterwork. Michelangelo wouldn't begin the end wall's powerful exegesis on "The Last Judgment" for another 24 years.

A former teacher at a Pacoima elementary school who continued to work in Los Angeles Unified schools despite several red flags was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in prison after he admitted molesting 13 students. In letters read to Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Lloyd Nash, the parents of three victims explained how third-grade teacher Paul Chapel lured the Telfair Elementary School children before molesting them. One mother, identified as Darlene, wrote that Chapel "personally requested" her son to be in his class.
