Only a little more than a week before Pope John Paul II arrives with a message of peace for the world's youth, Colorado officials are struggling with overdue logistical planning for the largest gathering in Denver history and an alarming rise in violent street crimes. Over the past week, two boys and a 12-year-old girl were hospitalized and one man killed in separate drive-by shootings.

They have flocked here to celebrate the spirit of Catholicism, but piety and reverence only go so far when you're young and away from home. More than 2,000 young people from the Orange County Diocese are among the tens of thousands gathered here from around the world to celebrate World Youth Day and to glimpse Pope John Paul II. But many admit--some more boldly than others--that the much-heralded religious event is also sort of a big party.

With rosary beads, a new pair of white sneakers with yellow laces and a book of poetry, a beaming Pope John Paul II strode high into the Rocky Mountains on Friday for a rare day off. The break in the Pope's visit to his church's World Youth Day ceremonies here was uncharacteristic, but it was long planned at the suggestion of Denver Archbishop J. Francis Stafford.

They have flocked here to celebrate the spirit of Catholicism, but piety and reverence only go so far when you're young and away from home. More than 2,000 young people from the Diocese of Orange are here for World Youth Day and to glimpse Pope John Paul II. But many concede--some more boldly than others--that the much-heralded event is also sort of a big party.

She was only 12 when Pope John Paul II visited Los Angeles in 1987, and Adrianna (Adri) Espinosa of West Hills only vaguely remembers seeing him on television then. But now, at 18, amid her active involvement in a Chatsworth parish, Espinosa is "very excited" about being chosen to worship with the Pope inside a Denver cathedral. She is in a select group of young Catholics chosen to attend a semi-private Mass next Saturday morning with the Pope presiding and preaching.

Representatives of gay rights groups held a small but vocal protest Thursday near the site of Pope John Paul II's meeting with President Clinton, but the group was kept out of earshot of the two leaders. "Pope go home," the group of about 50 protesters chanted while they awaited the Pope. The group, protesting the Catholic Church's stance on homosexuality and what they called "selling out" by Clinton, said they wanted to send a message to both men.

No, prairie dogs are not kept on leashes. And no one knows what the Pope wears under his robe--at least no one at the downtown office of World Youth Day here. For the folks at the office, charged with helping to make arrangements for a mid-August visit by Pope John Paul II, a large part of their work involves fielding some pretty strange requests.

Cathy Thao Nguyen, 16, and more than 900 other Vietnamese residents of Orange County have an important rendezvous in Denver in two weeks: a private meeting with Pope John Paul II. "Whenever I think about it, I want to burst," the Fountain Valley teen said. "It's not often you get to see the Pope." The pontiff will preside over World Youth Day festivities in Colorado Aug. 11-15, the first time the event has been held in the United States.
