They have so much in common, these three long-dead holy women, their corpses dripping with jewels, that it's as though they've been calling back and forth to one another from across the centuries. Now that their images are in the same room at the American Visionary Art Museum , the murmur of their voices is almost audible. There's St. Kateri, holding a bouquet of her talisman - lilies - and reciting the Lord's Prayer in the Mohawk language. Embedded in the icon is a vial of water taken from the spring where Kateri lived in the 17th century.

When Navy junior Obi Uzoma finishes a drill for the outside linebackers, he has a vested interest in watching the rest of the position's players go through, and it has nothing to do with protecting his turf as the primary backup to starter Jordan Drake. Uzoma's intrigue stems from the presence of his younger brother, freshman Nnamdi Uzoma. The 6-foot-3, 231-pound Obi Uzoma said he and his younger brother compare notes "after every game, after every major scrimmage, after every practice.

One of the most extraordinary events of 2013 was the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires as pope - the first Jesuit, the first pope from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere, the first non-European in nearly 1,300 years and the first to take the name of Saint Francis. And yet, for many Roman Catholics, those are not the things that distinguish Francis from the long gray line of pontiffs who preceded him. It is one thing, for instance, to hear a pope urge charity for the poor, but quite another to hear him challenge the entrenched elites who abide chronic poverty in the midst of great wealth.

Jon Cole knew who he wanted to serve as his best man. The former McDonogh and Virginia soccer star, now 33, had high school pals and college teammates who floated in and out of his life, but one guy was constant. His high school coach, Steve Nichols, went from mentor to father figure to big brother to best friend over 20 years. At the time, two summers ago, Nichols joked at Cole's request: "I'm 43 years old, why me?" Cole never thought twice. "He's like the brother I never had," said Cole, who married in June 2012.
