Sister Kathleen Kirk, a Carmelite nun and organist who learned Greek and Spanish so she could read religious texts in their original language, died Tuesday of heart failure at the order's monastery in Towson. She was 86. Born Margaret Mary Kirk in Columbus, Ohio, she later moved with her family to Washington, D.C., where she graduated from St. Anthony's High School. In 1933, she entered the Carmelite Sisters of Baltimore and took the religious name Sister Kathleen. As a young nun, she studied Greek to be able to read original editions of the Bible and Spanish to read the works of Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross as they were written.

It has been nearly 30 years since Francis Poulenc's haunting opera “Dialogues of the Carmelites” was staged in Baltimore. No telling when or if it might return, so the opportunity offered this weekend by Peabody Opera Theatre should not be passed up. This uneven, but ultimately moving, production marks the third annual collaboration between Peabody Conservatory and the Modell/Lyric Performing Arts Center. The public does not seem to appreciate the value of the venture; attendance each year has been modest, as was the case again Friday night for the first of two performances of “Dialogues.” This valuable partnership deserves to be sustained, not to mention enhanced - increased funding would enable larger, more Lyric-scaled sets, for one thing.

For many years, critics didn't take French composer Francis Poulenc or his music very seriously, even after his first opera was premiered in 1947. Then again, that entry into the operatic realm wasn't likely to win over skeptics. The title is "The Breasts of Tiresias," and the surreal plot includes a man who fathers 40,000 children in one day. But Poulenc was the real deal, a composer with a distinctive flair for lyrical melody and an ear for exquisite harmony to support it. Those gifts were widely recognized and acclaimed when he created his second work for the stage, "Dialogues of the Carmelites," first heard in 1957.

THE SIGHT of a most agitated nun scurrying from house to house in a quiet East Baltimore neighborhood about noon Sunday, Aug. 18, 1839, alarmed residents. She made little sense and seemed mentally unstable. Seeking sanctuary, she was taken in by the town jailer. It turned out that she was Sister Isabella Neale from the Carmelite Convent on Aisquith Street. But the word that she had managed an "escape" from the convent was enough to draw a crowd of hundreds -- and then thousands.This was a period when the city and country were in a black mood of suspicion, particularly of minorities thought to have foreign connections.

As Sister Fran Horner leafed through prayer requests at the Carmelite Sisters of Baltimore monastery, she noticed a recurring theme this holiday season: more people asking the nuns to pray for peace. "I've seen more of them than I did during the war," said Horner, referring to President Bush's declaration of the end of major combat in Iraq on May 1. Christmas marks the birth of Jesus Christ - a time of great celebration for Christians and a traditional time of prayer, especially for peace.
