On Saturday night, someone crept up to the church steps and deposited a bundle wrapped in a filthy blue rag on the doorstep and then disappeared into the night. It was a baby girl, no more than an hour old.

In London, the day was being celebrated with a performance of the Britten Sinfonia at stately Stationers' Hall. In Boyle Heights, it was being observed by a group of enthusiastic mariachis playing guitars and trumpets on the street outside Olympic Donuts. It was the annual Festival of St. Cecilia--which honors the patron saint of musicians. And London certainly had nothing on Friday's street fiesta east of downtown Los Angeles.

The pictures from Rome filled Sister Marie LaBollita with fury. All those white-haired men in red vestments, but not one victim of clerical sexual abuse. Not a single family member to attest to the toll of sexual violation. Not one expert on pedophilia. Not one woman. "It's a disgrace," said LaBollita, who watched the Vatican gathering of America's cardinals last week from her office at Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic church in Newton. "I'm outraged."
