Though I was elated to see our wonderful Archbishop William Lori's photo in The Sun recently, I read with quite a laugh the commentary by Jon O'Brien that accompanied it ( "Whose freedom are the bishops protecting?" June 19). Catholics for Choice? All practicing Catholics should follow every aspect of our faith, including the prohibition against contraception. We will pray that Carla Hale and the woman identified only as "Sandra" revert back to their true Catholic baptism and willingly adhere to the teachings and doctrines of our glorious Church and its leaders.

TRUEMAN POINT -- In a freshly cleared field on the banks of the Patuxent River, sweet voices rose above the trees in what was as much a celebration as a religious ceremony.More than 100 bishops, church elders and followers of the Pentecostal Holiness faith gathered yesterday in the southernmost community of Prince George's County to baptize 20 church members in the calm waters of the Patuxent.For the first time in four years, the baptisms were held on this historic land, which served as a tobacco landing in Colonial times and for many years as a segregated beach for African-Americans.

NEW YORK - As the heat was beginning to rise from the pavement late yesterday morning, 115th Street between Lenox and Fifth avenues was as white as snow. Hundreds of people, dressed from head to foot in white cotton dresses, slacks and shirts, were arriving by the bus load and gathering in the center of the avenue for a baptism by fire hose. Each August since 1937, the United House of Prayer, a nondenominational Pentecostal church that claims 3 million congregants in 28 states, has held mass baptisms on 115th Street in East Harlem, using a fire hose to spray hundreds of participants with baptismal waters.

COTTAGE GROVE, Wis. -- The big wall clock tells the minister he has less than an hour before this night's Bible class down at the church. No time for supper. He finds his keys in the tight apartment that he and his wife, Susan, have rented for 16 years, shared now with an adult daughter, two cats and a dog. In this space, the clock looms large, a treadmill dominates the living room, and bunny knickknacks everywhere signal the approaching season of rebirth. A goodbye to Susan, a pocket pat to jingle those keys and out he goes into the wintry Wisconsin sunset, Roy Ratcliff, minister of the Mandrake Road Church of Christ in Madison.

I'm sure newly recalled Orioles relievers Julio Manon and Kurt Birkins are nice guys and I wish them the best in their new endeavor - trying to plug the gaping, Grand Canyon-sized hole in the middle of the Orioles' bullpen - but the team might be better served to take a lesson from history. During the club's glory years, it was not unusual for the best pitching prospect in the organization to serve a major league apprenticeship in long relief. Jim Palmer did it. So did Dennis Martinez, Mike Flanagan and Scott McGregor.

WASHINGTON - The U.S.-led conflict in Afghanistan may one day be remembered less for the ouster of the Taliban or as the first salvo in the war on terrorism than for the pilotless aircraft that cruised silently and almost unseen above the barren landscape. The aircraft, called unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, are in their infancy but will become crucial around 2020, Pentagon officials predict. Making long, high loops over a battlefield, they will provide live video of enemy forces, even peering through dense jungle foliage.

Monmouth women's lacrosse coach Sue Cowperthwait faced a monumental challenge as she prepared her players for today's date with No. 1 and six-time defending national champion Maryland in the Hawks' first appearance in the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse tournament. "It's definitely keeping them off the Internet and keeping them from reading the newspapers," said Cowperthwait, with a laugh. "But seriously, we're very honored to be in the tournament. Maryland is a terrific program and we're definitely going to see the best lacrosse has to offer, but we're here for a reason."

Preservation of wetlands has become almost a religion in Maryland. The holy crusade to protect all pieces of the foundation of life in the Chesapeake has been institutionalized, its mission turned into sacrosanct official doctrine.Small wonder then that defenders of the estuarine faith in Prince George's County righteously stood their marshy ground for years in rejecting the sacrilege of Christian worshipers trampling over reeds and grasses for the sacrament of baptism along a historic bank of the Patuxent River.
