Thousands of Vietnamese American Roman Catholics on Sunday celebrated and mourned the memory of their ancestors who were martyred more than two centuries ago. The ceremony at Cal State Long Beach's Pyramid mixed Catholic rites with Vietnamese-inspired dance, music and theater to recount the story of 117 martyrs slain during the persecution of Catholics in Vietnam between 1798 and 1861. The martyrs, canonized by Pope John Paul II in 1988, were among more than 100,000 Vietnamese Catholics killed because of their religious beliefs.

This wasn't a pastoral visit. After Hurricane Katrina, there was nobody left to minister to. Roman Catholic Bishop Dominic Luong said he needed to see for himself the damage done to the Vietnamese community he helped bring together three decades ago. On Wednesday, in the middle of a five-day trip to the Gulf Coast to minister to Vietnamese evacuees, Luong traveled to Versailles, a settlement in East New Orleans that had been home to 10,000 immigrants.

Hundreds of Catholics rallied outside Rep. Ed Royce's office in Brea on Tuesday evening to demand a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are in the country illegally. “I pray that not only he, but other members of Congress, will have a change of heart and quickly enact comprehensive immigration reform for our country,” Dominic Luong, auxiliary bishop of Orange, told the crowd. The windows to Royce's second-floor offices remained dark as the rally concluded with a prayer for "those who come from other lands" and a chant of "Si se puede.

Echoing the apostle Paul's words that "we are strangers and aliens no longer," Dominic Luong was ordained Wednesday in Garden Grove as the first Vietnamese-born Roman Catholic bishop in the United States. The ordination of the Diocese of Orange's newest auxiliary bishop drew a capacity crowd of 1,500 to St. Columban Church, including 34 bishops from across the country and Vietnam.

Crossing the Pacific in a dilapidated boat, 10-year-old Bich Vu had a face-off with God. "If you save me and my family," he promised nearly three decades ago, "my life will be yours." The miracle happened, and Vu, now 39, kept his word by becoming a priest. "My experience on the ocean," he says, "made my faith grow stronger. It taught me that I was weak. I couldn't save myself; I had to depend on God." Vu, known to parishioners at Anaheim's St.

Cardinal Roger Mahony should have said goodbye when Cardinal Bernard Law did ("Mahony Resisted Abuse Inquiry, Panelist Says," June 12). Regarding Mahony's cover-up and collusion with men who abused and molested children and raped girls: They should never have been called "priest" from the day he knew of their crimes. Now, under California law, Mahony is as guilty as they are, by aiding and abetting, through vicarious liability. He should be charged, tried, convicted and sent to prison.

In his first-ever meeting with a Vietnamese audience, Pope John Paul II on Sunday applauded efforts by expatriates to preserve cultural traditions in their adopted countries, challenging them to strengthen unity among themselves and support the Catholic church in their homeland. The 73-year-old pontiff told a spellbound audience of 13,000 Vietnamese Catholics--at least 1,000 of whom were from Orange County--that he recognizes the hardship and suffering they have endured in the last two decades.

It was 1985, and ugly rumors were spreading among African Americans about their newest neighbors. Word had it that immigrants from Vietnam were getting big government grants and prime jobs. And there were darker accusations as well, blaming the disappearance of neighborhood pets on the strange eating habits of the refugees from half a world away.

As the morning mist lifts, groups of mostly older men and women, faces shielded from the sun by cone-shaped straw hats, make their way to a large, low-lying field to cultivate garden plots. It's a ritual startlingly reminiscent of scenes shown on television during the Vietnam War. But this is the Mississippi Delta, not the Mekong. "I have seen this same thing in Vietnam, many times," said Tu Pineda, an interpreter for Associated Catholic Charities of New Orleans.
