THE 50,000 PEOPLE WHO are expected to attend the papal Mass undoubtedly consider themselves lucky, but 60 of them are doubly blessed: They will receive Holy Communion from the hand of Pope John Paul II.About 300 priests, deacons and seminarians will distribute communion to the Camden Yards congregation, but only the five dozen will receive it from the pope. Twenty people were selected for the honor from each of the three regions, or vicariates, in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. For the select few, it will be an incomparable spiritual moment.

The remarkable humility of Pope Francis is causing lapsed Catholics to reconsider their relationship with the church, this one included. Those of us who left the church in a huff or drifted away, disillusioned by the scandals or the money, or bristling at the ever more strict requirements to participate, did not do so easily. The church had been a community to which our families - especially our children - were welcome. Until we were not. Until we could not reconcile our consciences with the edicts from the pulpit.

LOS ANGELES -- It is one of the most sensitive questions American Catholic bishops have wrestled with the past few years: When Catholic public officials do not follow church teachings, should they be denied Holy Communion? So it was no surprise when the question was posed to Washington's cardinal, Theodore E. McCarrick, after he addressed bishops last week on the topic of Catholic politicians. Many bishops have talked to Catholic lawmakers whose views clash with the church, said Archbishop Elden F. Curtiss, of Omaha, Neb. "After we've made the effort, what do we do if the conclusion is not positive?"

WASHINGTON - The incredible news coverage given to the death of Pope John Paul II and the election of his successor, Pope Benedict XVI, may be baffling to non-Catholics. The papacy, after all, is a religious institution in a world of many religions, and Catholicism is one whose influence today is seriously questioned in this country and in others. Nobody is heard asking anymore, as Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin was said to inquire about Pope Pius XII, "How many divisions has the pope?" Pope John Paul II is widely credited with encouraging the spirit of freedom in his own Poland, marked by the growth of the Solidarity movement and the eventual tumbling of communism in Europe.

Clergy fulfill duty by denying Communion The Sun's editorial "Church politics" (May 26) was way off base. Refusing Holy Communion to a Catholic may have political repercussions, but it is not a political act. It is a religious duty on the part of the priest (or bishop) to refuse Holy Communion to someone when he knows that person is not in a state of grace. I'll state the bare bones of authentic Catholic teaching on this issue as simply as possible: When you receive Holy Communion, you are receiving the body and blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
