Ben Myers, 14, is giving a Christmas present this year that speaks volumes about him. Nine hundred volumes, to be exact. That's the number of children's books that Ben, a pupil at the School of the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, rounded up to donate to a family health clinic and day care center in East Baltimore that was hit hard by Tropical Storm Isabel. It started in September, after Isabel struck the Lillian D. Wald Community Nursing Center at 1600 Rutland Ave. with such force that the basement was flooded with 4 feet of water, ruining the collection of children's books downstairs.

Regarding Baltimore Archdiocese Vice-Chancellor Sean Caine's recent letter justifying the church's response to allegations of child sexual abuse, I am glad that in 1993 Maryland's attorney general made it clear that all abuse cases should be reported ("Archdiocese acted responsibly," Dec. 2). So much for the Catholic Church being a moral leader. When I returned to the archdiocese in 1993 to again report the abuse I had suffered, it was through Fr. William Mannion. At that point I had been in touch with 17 other victims of John Merzbacher.
