To celebrate the mission's bicentennial, a series of events, including an intertribal powwow and American history reenactments, culminated in a Sunday afternoon concert at the Serra Center with liturgical works by Mozart, Palestrina and Faure and a psalm by Schubert.

In September, while on vacation in Newport Beach, Gilbert Levine made a day trip to Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside, the so-called "King of the Missions." He found himself completely captivated. "In the halls of old churches and homes, in synagogues, in any ancient structure, I hear music," said Levine, the New York-born conductor of the Krakow Philharmonic. "Architecture sings in a way. I heard wonderful music in the walls of this mission." Last weekend, others heard it too.

A convoy of flatbed trucks bore the coffins, two by two, in a long, slow procession to St. Paul's Basilica. There, under columns and frescoes, as the Vatican's choir sang hymns, a cardinal blessed each slain man, sprinkling holy water and sending him to his final rest as this shaken nation grieved for and then bade farewell to the 19 Italians killed by a truck bomb in Iraq.

Pope John Paul II installed Los Angeles Archbishop Roger M. Mahony as the first California-born cardinal Friday in a rite of passage that brought American high-tech to St. Peter's Basilica and silent joy to a community of cloistered nuns in the ancient heart of Rome. About 430 pilgrims from California watched Mahony and 22 other cardinals from 15 countries receive from John Paul the ridged scarlet hat called a biretta that is symbol of their eminence as the Pope's closest advisers.
