Thousands gathered yesterday outside St. Wenceslaus Church in East Baltimore to catch a glimpse of Mother Teresa as she dedicated a convent for her order of Roman Catholic nuns near the church. Mother Teresa is regarded by many as a living saint for her work among the poor of Calcutta. Four nuns from her Missionaries of Charity arrived in Baltimore last April and have been quietly but efficiently ministering to the city's neediest.Mother Teresa's visit was a timely reminder of how much remains to be done to help those who have fallen through society's safety nets, and particularly impoverished AIDS patients.

When Mother Teresa visited Baltimore Wednesday to dedicate a convent for her order of Roman Catholic nuns near St. Wenceslaus Church in East Baltimore, the Nobel Prize-winner whom many consider a living saint for her work among the poor spoke only a few words to the large crowd gathered for the occasion. She reminded her audience that God "wants us to love one another as he loves us." Then she handed out small religious medals.It was such a simple gesture one might have wondered why those who had waited for hours just to catch a glimpse of this renowned religious figure found it so moving.

Question: What do Billy Graham, Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa have in common with Michael Jordan?Answer: They are all among the people Americans say they most admire.In a survey last December by the Gallup organization, Mr. Graham placed fifth among men who are most admired by American adults, ranking one place above Pope John Paul and four places above Mr. Jordan, who was ninth.Mr. Graham's appearance on the list is his 36th in the regular surveys, making him by far the most durable figure in the more than 40 years that the Gallup organization has asked Americans to name the people they most respect.

As I sat in the ornate St. Wenceslaus church in anticipationof seeing Mother Teresa, I began to reflect on the unsung saints that live and work in this East Baltimore neighborhood. Bound by their fierce sense of justice and their commitment to save children from drugs and street violence, there are many women pursuing a new vision for their neighborhood.Mother Teresa's urging to ''help one another to be holy,'' reminded me of Sister Bobby English, the Director of the Julie Community Center at Washington and Lombard streets.

I have been reading the February issue of Vanity Fair wherein Christopher Hitchens, a British subject, describes Mother Teresa ''the ghoul of Calcutta.'' Mr. Hitchens' essay -- ''Mother Teresa and Me'' -- is a justification of a television expose that he wrote and presented last year on Britain's Channel Four.Mr. Hitchens belongs among that generation of British journalists and editors -- amoral aliens -- who have invaded New York and Washington. These expats are like characters from a minor Evelyn Waugh novel; they are craven and coarse and contemptuous of the colonials.

Washington. -- Hillary Rodham Clinton committed a gracious and pro-life act last week when she appeared with Mother Teresa at the dedication of a Washington home for unwed mothers and their babies awaiting adoption.It was gracious because at last year's National Prayer Breakfast, Mrs. Clinton and the president, with an audience of 3,000, listened to a speech by Mother Teresa about the evils of abortion. The pro-choice Mrs. Clinton could have treated the incident as an affront and stiffed the Nobel Peace Prize winner.

WASHINGTON - The wife of spy suspect Robert Hanssen has told authorities that he confided to her and to a Catholic priest about 20 years ago that he had begun supplying information to the KGB. She said that the priest initially urged Hanssen to turn himself in, but then changed his mind and persuaded Hanssen to donate the $20,000 he had received from the Soviet Union to charity, government officials and others involved in the case said. Hanssen told his wife that he gave the money, in small installments, to Mother Teresa's charitable efforts, according to the account she gave to investigators.
