Standing among friends and colleagues yesterday, Monsignor W. Francis Malooly clutched a skullcap worn by Roman Catholic bishops - a symbol of his past and his future. The skullcap, called a zucchetto, belonged to Bishop T. Austin Murphy of Baltimore, Malooly's uncle and the inspiration that led the boy from St. Ursula School in Parkville to the priesthood. Now, Malooly, 56, will don the zucchetto himself. The Vatican announced yesterday his appointment as an auxiliary bishop of Baltimore, one of three assistants to Cardinal William H. Keeler.

BOSTON - The man chosen yesterday by Pope John Paul II as the interim leader of the Archdiocese of Boston is a welcome contrast to Cardinal Bernard F. Law, according to priests and Catholic lay leaders who know the new appointee. These priests and lay Catholics say the pope's choice, Auxiliary Bishop Richard G. Lennon, is a good listener and easy to get along with and has made a genuine effort to get to know people who worked under him in Boston's western suburbs, where until now he was in charge of one of the archdiocese's five regions.
