When Pope Benedict XVI made his first foreign trip as pontiff last week, representatives from St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church were present. It was early on a Thursday morning, and group chaperon Bernadette Chavis had spread out a blanket just feet from a narrow street where the pope would soon be. About 60 St. John congregants, many of whom were youth, joined Chavis and peered over each other's shoulders as the pontiff arrived. "When he came around that corner and he turned to us and waved, everyone's eyes lighted up," said Chavis, a Costa Mesa resident who went on the trip with her two daughters.

On Tuesday, the College of the Cardinals selected Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger to become the next pope. Ratzinger, who adopted the name Pope Benedict XVI, served as the chief of staff for Pope John Paul II and has been portrayed in the press as a conservative, much like John Paul II. What will be the biggest challenge facing Pope Benedict XVI as he takes control of the Roman Catholic Church? As any religious leader, the challenge before the pope is to remind all who will listen that they must cultivate a life of the spirit.

At 85, Pope Benedict XVI is the first to resign the papacy in centuries, citing his age and health concerns. But a relatively young Orange County bishop Benedict appointed just months ago may carry on his influence in the diocese for years to come. "He's younger than I am," the Rev. Enrique Sera of Costa Mesa's St. Joachim Catholic Church said about Bishop Kevin W. Vann, 61. Benedict chose Vann to lead the Orange County Diocese in September. Vann was welcomed in a ceremony at UC Irvine about two months ago. Sera, who said he comforted parishioners Tuesday morning, the day after Benedict announced his retirement, had similarly glowing words for the pope and the bishop.

Think of it as spring cleaning. OK, fall cleaning. Is there anything more entertaining than weird news? I think not. Lately, the weird news file has grown too thick to ignore, and we have fallen way behind vis-a-vis our responsibility to bring you all the news that's fit to be strange. So many stories, so little time. Let's get busy. Public service is hard. Just ask Yvonne Lamanna, 58, a Penn Hills, Pa., city councilwoman, who filed a workers' compensation claim against Penn Hills for a severe back injury she said she received when she took her seat at a council meeting.

Do you think Pope Benedict XVI has done enough to address the controversy that followed his recent remarks about Islam? In the Roman Catholic faith, the pope is essentially the vicar of Christ. Therefore, it is difficult for Muslims to understand why Pope Benedict XVI, a former professor and intellectual, resorted to citing a 14th century Byzantine emperor, knowing full well that the emperor held deeply bigoted views on Islam. As the pope claims, his intention was to stimulate an academic discussion on religion and violence, but considering the climate of Islamophobia today and the pope's stature, was it necessary for the pope to cite the faith of Islam in such a derogatory fashion?

Congratulations, Archbishop Jose Gomez! I agree with Jorge Contreras, security guard at La Placeta Catholic Church, that the selection is a great thing for Hispanics, and hopefully for all Roman Catholics in the Los Angeles Diocese, and for the inter-religious community in Southern California. While Gomez’s election is progressive in terms of racial inclusion, he appears to be a nonprogressive when it comes to the important issues of birth control, clergy sexual abuse and gay rights.
