Some college students go to Cancun or Daytona Beach for spring break. Ryan Mullen and J.P. Mikolajczyk started theirs inside a cavernous metal shop in Glen Burnie, helping to build an altar for Pope Benedict XVI to use next month when he visits the nation's capital. The architecture students from Catholic University of America won a competition to design the altar, chair and pulpit for the pontiff when he celebrates Mass at the new Nationals Park on April 17. Construction began last week on the papal furnishings, with four Maryland companies playing key roles in the process - and with the students forgoing a trip home to monitor the work.

WARSAW, Poland -- Major provisions of Poland's deeply divisive abortion rights law were struck down yesterday as unconstitutional in a far-reaching decision that says abortion violates the country's nascent democratic legal order.The 9-3 ruling by the Polish Constitutional Tribunal virtually ensures that abortion, with few exceptions, will once again become illegal in Poland, reopening one of the country's most painful social wounds just five months after the liberalized law took effect."The first article of our constitution names Poland as a democratic state based on the rule of law," said Tribunal President Andrzej Zoll.

Sure, Boyz II men were the headliners at last night's papal concert. And yeah, the screaming didn't let up for even one second of the 20-minute set.But the loudest cheer of the evening was reserved for a 75-year-old from Rome who wasn't even there, a transplanted Pole who closed the concert not with a song, but simply by telling the crowd by satellite that he was looking forward to his visit to Baltimore.So who was more popular at Pier Six last night, the pop singers or the pontiff?For the 4,500 screaming fans who were lucky enough to land the free tickets distributed to parishes and youth groups by the Archdiocese of Baltimore, it was probably a draw.

NAZARETH, Israel -- Jerusalem is usually the place that dominates religious animosities in the Holy Land. But lately, Nazareth has been competing for attention in a dispute that's even aroused the Vatican.It started two years ago with the demolition of a Muslim school. Since then, the dispute between Muslims and Christians in the city where Jesus grew up has sparked outbreaks of violence and become a crisis that threatens Pope John Paul II's trip next year to the Holy Land to celebrate the year 2000.

Wearing a hard hat and a white collar, Cardinal William H. Keeler led a tour yesterday of the half-restored Basilica of the Assumption in downtown Baltimore, all the while hinting to contractors that he expects the project to be finished early.

Think Mexico is only for spring breakers on a beach, coconut drink and pink umbrella in hand? Think again. Adventurous visitors willing to branch out from well-traveled haunts like Puerto Vallarta or the Riviera Maya will be rewarded with singular experiences, from a freshwater lagoon in Quintana Roo to a treasure-trove of Mayan handicrafts in a stunning colonial town. Leave the crowded coast behind and stumble upon un-excavated pyramids rising from the jungle, warm swimming holes carved from limestone beneath the earth or a tranquil fishing village on the Pacific.
