There was a small epiphany in church last week when we sang the recessional "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded," a German chorale in which we basses must jump around more limberly than we may be used to. A tough part compared with "When the Roll Is Called up Yonder," and I stood in the rear and struggled with it, and then as the choir recessed down the main aisle and came up and stood in the side aisles, three basses wound up standing near me, like border collies...

Hundreds of young people rallied at Rash Field yesterday, opening Holy Week with prayers, hymns and a pilgrimage through the streets of downtown. The atmosphere at the eighth annual Youth Pilgrimage was as festive as a pep rally, but the cheers were for a Roman Catholic cardinal and for teen-agers costumed as saints. "Maybe we can understand better the journey Christ had to make and also show the people of Baltimore that we are strong in our faith and that so many are involved in church," said 17-year-old Matt Thomas of Bel Air, who came carrying a handful of rocks and dressed as St. Stephen, the first martyr.

Prayer replaced sports and commerce at Rash Field, Charles Center and other city landmarks yesterday as about 800 Catholic youths joined a pilgrimage through downtown. With Christian rock music blaring in the background, Cardinal William H. Keeler, archbishop of Baltimore, helped rally the throng gathered around the pavilion at Rash Field. The 71-year-old cardinal moved easily among the crowd, greeting the teen-agers and often clasping their hands.

ROME - The final act of Pope John Paul II's pontificate is difficult to watch, but he is determined that the whole world see it. The drama will be played out again this Holy Week, the most important week of the liturgical calendar, as the pontiff, barely able to speak or stand, struggles to demonstrate that he is able to lead his flock of 1.1 billion Roman Catholics. The Vatican has promised only that on Easter the pope will offer a televised blessing from the papal apartments. By lowering expectations, the papal handlers seem to be calculating that any words or appearances beyond that will be interpreted as a sign that the pope's health is improving.

I would like to file a formal complaint with American Airlines about a trip. But before I spend my time: Will my letter go in the trash or be read? Airlines insist that customer service ranks near the top of their priorities, but fliers still invariably encounter poor service in addition to delays, flight cancellations and lost luggage. What to do? To complain directly to American, go to the carrier's Web site (aa.com) and click on "Contact AA," then "Customer Relations." You'll find addresses for reaching a representative who handles complaints.

This Holy Week is a time for friends and family, a time of spiritual rebirth and affirmation. For some of us, it is an ecclesiastical celebration of Christianity, of Jesus Christ's triumph over death. For others, it is a commemoration of God's deliverance of the Jews from slavery in Egypt. Of freedom. For all, it is a reminder that hope springs eternal in the miracle we call life.Once again, the season finds humanity steeped in conflict. A disastrous civil war in the former Yugoslav republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
