Students at St. Francis High School erupted into spontaneous applause at a previously planned Tuesday morning assembly when they learned a new pope had been elected. "We've all been very excited about the whole process. It's an exciting time to live through," said Dorothy Holm, faith formation director for St. Bede the Venerable parish in La CaƱada Flintridge, which includes St. Francis. A conclave of cardinals from around the world elected the new pope Tuesday morning, signaling the two-thirds majority vote with puffs of white smoke emanating from a chimney of the Sistine Chapel and bells ringing throughout Vatican City.

When Pope Benedict XVI made his first foreign trip as pontiff last week, representatives from St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church were present. It was early on a Thursday morning, and group chaperon Bernadette Chavis had spread out a blanket just feet from a narrow street where the pope would soon be. About 60 St. John congregants, many of whom were youth, joined Chavis and peered over each other's shoulders as the pontiff arrived. "When he came around that corner and he turned to us and waved, everyone's eyes lighted up," said Chavis, a Costa Mesa resident who went on the trip with her two daughters.

Some Protestant religious leaders have expressed concern over new Pope Benedict XVI's -- Joseph Ratzinger's -- conservatism. They cite examples including when Ratzinger, as the protector of the Catholic doctrine, said the Catholic Church was the only true church. Do you have concerns about the direction this pope will take during his tenure, and his more conservative stance? As Cardinal Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI used his position to facilitate the historic reconciliation with the Jewish people of his predecessor John Paul II. Under Ratzinger's direction, the Vatican released an important document that acknowledged the church's painful past treatment of people of the Jewish faith.

As the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close, my generation will get a chance, for the first time, to look back on the first 10 years of a new century. The last time this happened to a generation, television hadn?t been invented. At my 10-year high school reunion in November, we couldn?t help but talk about what we didn?t have in terms of technology. In the late 1990s, there was no so such thing as social networking. Dial-up was the norm, as was listening to streaming audio on Real Player and using Netscape Navigator to surf the Internet.

Pope Benedict XVI recently launched the first ever Vatican YouTube channel. The channel will carry liturgical events, audiences with the pope and other papal activities. Benedict said that “wise” use of such technologies helps promote the search for “the true, the good and the beautiful” across borders and ethnic divisions. How important do you believe technology is to the evangelist of the 21st century? How do you use technology in your own church?   Imagine how much harder Jesus and his disciples had to work in biblical times to reach as many people as possible with their liberating, inspiring, God-filled messages because the technology we have today was not available.

Darleene Barrientos A black bunting of mourning was replaced with bright white and yellow banners over the entrance of Holy Family Catholic Church, where parishioners celebrated the election of a new pope Tuesday. Before a cheering throng waving and chanting in St. Peter's Square Tuesday, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, 78, of Germany introduced himself to the world as Pope Benedict XVI, calling himself a "simple, humble worker." Having a new pope was a relief to Catholics in Glendale, Burbank and the foothills, some of whom had described themselves as "orphans" since Pope John Paul II had died April 2. "I'm delighted.

Think of it as spring cleaning. OK, fall cleaning. Is there anything more entertaining than weird news? I think not. Lately, the weird news file has grown too thick to ignore, and we have fallen way behind vis-a-vis our responsibility to bring you all the news that's fit to be strange. So many stories, so little time. Let's get busy. Public service is hard. Just ask Yvonne Lamanna, 58, a Penn Hills, Pa., city councilwoman, who filed a workers' compensation claim against Penn Hills for a severe back injury she said she received when she took her seat at a council meeting.

Pope Benedict XVI is under increasing pressure to directly address the sex scandals rocking the Catholic Church worldwide. Questions have been raised about the actions of Benedict while he was archbishop of Munich. The latest reports from Europe are from Italy, where three men say they were abused as boys at a Catholic school for the deaf. ?To the Point,? a news program on KCRW-FM (89.9), posed these questions: Is this a smear campaign, as the Vatican claims, or is it time for the pope to explain his actions, in the interests of restoring his dwindling credibility?

SOUTH GLENDALE — Sitting across from the painting that started it all, local artist Micheline Abounassar is overwhelmed by her recent fame.

The officials contacted the 28-year-old artist, who goes by Micha, who donated a copy to be presented to Pope Benedict XVI during his May 12 visit to Jerusalem to be displayed at the Vatican.
