All these decades later, Cardinal William H. Keeler of Baltimore can recite from the small book he memorized in an elementary classroom. So can Carol Nevin "Sue" Abromaitis, a Loyola College English professor. So can thousands upon thousands of other Americans who attended Catholic schools or religious instruction: "Why did God make you?" is a question in the Baltimore Catechism, as Abromaitis quoted yesterday. "To know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world and to be happy in the next" is the answer.

Thank you, Baltimore Catechism, for a bonus that had nothing to do with theology. You taught me how to memorize. While hardly a ticket to heaven, the Baltimore Catechism was a hot-seller during early years of my education. This textbook of Roman Catholic belief was recognized this week by one of its publishers at a religious educators' conference held in the city. That little volume deserved the applause.

Once it was proclaimed, with an aura of contented swagger, as the "Oriole Way," a manner of training and preparing young players down on the farm, in such divergent places as Bluefield, Pensacola, Charlotte and Elmira. It provided the organization an almost boastful attitude -- as if this was the only major-league team going about its business with such precise detail.If only producing championship clubs could be so easy. Forget about that. The Orioles had some exceptional students who made the system look good -- such as Brooks Robinson, Jim Palmer, Mark Belanger, Boog Powell, Paul Blair, Dave McNally, Andy Etchebarren, Bobby Grich, Al Bumbry, Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken -- and what seemed an otherwise nonstop assembly line that was producing talent to fit specific needs.

If wearing patent leather shoes makes you feel slightly sinful, if you wake up Fridays with a strange hankering for fish sticks, if you still divide your transgressions into venial and mortal, it can only mean one thing:You're a survivor of Catholic school!And this is your week: Yes, that institution responsible for equal amounts of guilt and hilarity, repression and rebellion among its graduates actually has its own national week (officially, Catholic Schools Week, which began yesterday)

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- To see where the life of Clarence Thomas might have ended up, one must journey to where it began, out on the tidal flats of the Moon River just south of town, where marsh grasses bend gently to breezes that smell faintly of brine and mud.Here at a small community called Pinpoint, little has changed from June 1948 when the man President Bush has nominated for the Supreme Court was born. The shack of a crab house where his mother picked meat for a nickel a pound still stands by the murky water.

I am a 71 year old grandmother who grew up in the Roman Catholic Church, learning from the Baltimore Catechism, and who graduated from a Catholic college. I am, however, growing ever more concerned that some clerics ("Outspoken bishop to lead Baltimore Archdiocese," March 21) and politicians alike seem to be misusing the concept of religious freedom and minimizing or ignoring the concept of separation of church and state. These concepts are two of the most important principles on which our country was founded - and for good reasons, I might add. Putting aside all of the rhetoric, I think these principles are not so complicated.

ST. LOUIS - After 18 months of extraordinary turmoil, the nation's Roman Catholic bishops spent the day behind closed doors yesterday considering convening a national gathering of bishops, priests and lay people to discuss challenges facing the church, including the need to affirm the discipline of priestly celibacy and to re-examine the role of lay people. If the bishops agreed to call a plenary council, it would be the first such gathering in this country in more than a century. "This is an extraordinary moment in the life of the church," said Cardinal Francis George of Chicago.

Scranton, Pa.--Let me tell you about growing up Irish Catholic in a town that was filled with Irish Catholics.First of all, there was the size of the families.Our family of 10 was nothing unusual. The Comerfords had 9 kids, the Dohertys had 11, the Hintons 12, the Maloneys 10 and the Quinns had 14. When Mother Church told the Irish to be fruitful and multiply, they took her orders very seriously in Scranton.This law of nature had major consequences.Not only did I grow up inheriting my older brothers' shirts and socks, I was referred to as "Bobby O'Brien's brother" or as "One of the Green Ridge O'Briens" as much as by my own name.
