MANILA, Philippines -- In Denver 17 months ago, in a World Youth Day gathering that many people compared to Woodstock, Pope John Paul II enthralled young Americans packed into a park in a scene that had all the backpack- and blue-jean bonhomie of a 1960s rock concert.Yesterday, it was the pope's turn to be impressed.On the first World Youth Day gathering since the one in Denver in August 1993, up to 4 million people turned out yesterday in the Philippines, the Vatican said, and many clerics said it was the biggest audience the pope had ever seen at a papal Mass.

On June 21, the Vatican press office published the presentation made by Pope Francis to the 31st International Drug Enforcement Conference (IDEC) in Rome. The pope told the conferees, "The problem of drug use is not solved with drugs! … Substitute drugs are not an adequate therapy, but rather a veiled means of surrendering to the phenomenon. " These comments represent an unfortunate, categorical rejection of "maintenance" treatment of opioid addiction with medications such as methadone.

When Cassadee Pope introduced herself to America - at least the segment that watches reality singing competitions - two years ago on NBC's “The Voice,” she sang Natalie Imbruglia's hit, “Torn,” to a huge ovation. In a sense, Pope, who ended up winning the show's third season, was also saying goodbye to the old her. From 2008 to 2011, Pope was the lead singer of Hey Monday, a pop-punk band that toured with Fall Out Boy and Towson-bred All Time Low but is now on an indefinite hiatus as Pope pursues a solo country career.

Perhaps in future stories about filmmaker John Waters, The Sun Magazine could refrain from linking the title for the leader of the world's Roman Catholics with the term "filth" ( "A John Waters Christmas," Nov. 20). Your description of Mr. Waters as the "Pope of Filth" was incredibly offensive. Perhaps the "King of Filth" or the "Filth Czar" would have been a better way to describe him. Leave the Pope out of it.

I very much enjoyed your the Sun Magazine article on John Waters and his holiday celebration ( "A John Waters Christmas," Nov. 24). National figures who hail from, and remain connected to, Baltimore are always of special interest. However, I am disgusted and reviled by your reference to him as the "Pope of Filth" because it denigrates Mr. Waters beyond belief and because it is an inappropriate use of the title of the head of one of the world's great religions. It's hard to imagine that the storied Baltimore Sun would stoop so low in an effort to be cute.

It seemed that Pope Francis was open to new ideas with a passion for helping to understand and alleviate the problems of poverty, violence and abuse. It is very disappointing to read that he is looking at Satan as the reason for mental illness and possibly other issues facing all of us ("Pope targets ancient nemesis: Satan," May 14). God gave us brains. I think he wants us to use them to find methods for making sense of the world other than sweeping it all under the carpet of evil, which exonerates us from accepting responsibility for our own failings.

The pending sainthood of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII may be a bit rushed ( "St. Pius X parishioners recall role in visit of Pope John Paul II," April 23). Both were allegedly cognizant that under their tenure there were heinous sexual crimes supposedly committed by men of the cloth, men of the Roman Catholic Church, in parishes around the world. This is a plea from a former Roman Catholic for the Vatican to become transparent in a time when anything less is simply unacceptable.

Minutes from meeting Pope John Paul II in 1995, Justin Farinelli of Pasadena had one fear racing through his mind. "I didn't want to drop the flowers," he recalled last week with a laugh. "They were almost as big as I was. " Farinelli, 9 years old at the time, was among two children selected from local Catholic churches to greet the pope when he visited Baltimore on Oct. 8, 1995. With the canonization of the late pope scheduled for Sunday, April 27, Farinelli is reflecting on the man who helped to humanize his faith.

Ever since she met Pope John Paul II when she was a schoolgirl in 1995, Melissa Brent has frequently replayed the brief encounter in her mind. But when she learned that John Paul would be canonized as a saint this weekend, she burst into tears. "Everything was just real, all of those emotions just hit me at once. … All these years and it's like, 'Wow, I met a saint and I can feel it,' " said Brent, a 26-year-old nurse now living in Virginia Beach. In 1995, Brent was living in Columbia with her family and attending third grade at St. William of York School in Baltimore.

According to the Roman Missal of the Catholic Church, the Holy Thursday ceremony of the washing of the feet may include only "viri selecti" - selected men. That is why Pope Francis raised ecclesiastical eyebrows when he continued his practice of washing the feet not only of men but also of women and non-Catholics during his visit to the Don Gnocchi center for the elderly in Rome. We need to fear no such deviation from the legal norm in Baltimore, however. Archbishop William E. Lori presided over the ceremony on Holy Thursday at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen and adhered to the letter of the law by washing the feet of men only.

The call came to Baltimore's Basilica several weeks ago: President Barack Obama needed a gift to bring to Pope Francis on his coming visit to the Vatican. Might the basilica, the first Catholic cathedral in the U.S., have something? From a former crypt, now a storage room, in the bowels of the basilica, church officials did indeed have just the thing, or at least the raw material for it: some salvaged mahogany from the historic cathedral's early years, hand-crafted into a seed chest that the president presented to the pope Wednesday.

1969 was a year I well remember - it was my first year in a seminary in Virginia. I was beginning my journey to the priesthood with an American religious order, the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity. Nine years later, I was ordained a priest in Silver Spring, Md. That same year, a Catholic seminarian in Argentina was ordained a Jesuit Priest. His name: Jorge Mario Bergoglio. While it seems impossible, forty-five years have passed. Father Bergoglio is now Pope Francis, and approaching his one year anniversary in the post, and I am a husband, a father and a professional in the field of mental health.

The United Nations has decried the Vatican for not being transparent about the sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests, bishops and cardinals over the past few decades ("UN panels urges Vatican to turn over sex abusers to authorities," Feb. 5). Moreover, the United Nations holds Pope Francis to be accountable, in a manner of speaking. The Vatican has a centuries-old twisted, cloudy and convoluted past. Pertinent information from the Vatican and the Roman Catholics around the world must be shared in order for the church to move forward.
