Several months have passed since scandal rocked the small Eastside Catholic parish. "Father Nick," the fugitive priest charged with sexually molesting at least 10 altar boys at the church and at another parish, is seldom mentioned. At Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, nestled in the foothills of predominantly Latino El Sereno, parishioners still fill Sunday Masses celebrated in Spanish, and a new roster of altar boys assists at the services.

The naming of Archbishop Roger M. Mahony as a cardinal means more for the man than for the Los Angeles Archdiocese. His new position will give him added stature nationally and in the Roman Catholic Church, as well as enhancing his image as spiritual head of the country's most populous archdiocese.

That is only one priest for every 2,151 Catholics, the lowest ratio of priests to parishioners of any archdiocese in the country. And the challenge steadily grows more difficult: This year, vocations directors say, only five or six men will be ordained by the Los Angeles archdiocese.

Alarmed by escalating U.S. threats of war in the Persian Gulf, 10 Southern California religious leaders issued an unusual joint statement on Wednesday imploring President Bush not to resort to military action until "intensive diplomatic efforts" are exhausted.

Humans have in their hearts a law written by God. To obey it is the very dignity of the human . . . according to our conscience we will be judged. --The Second Vatican Council On a warm Saturday evening, 17 gays and lesbians sit in a small chapel in Westwood and sing a Catholic hymn called "Be Not Afraid."
