Janine Marnien As news of a possible war with Iraq greets residents on a daily basis, the Justice and Peace Forum at St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church is turning to one of its most powerful weapons in an effort to prevent violence: prayer. The group will host an hourlong prayer service Wednesday to pray for a peaceful ending to the conflict with Iraq. The event is nonpolitical, said Katy Sadler, a participant in the service. Sadler is also the assistant principal in charge of student affairs at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.

Amber Willard NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Small votive candles silently flickered in a corner of St. Mark's Episcopal Church Friday afternoon, where dozens of people -- parishioners and nonparishioners -- came to reflect on the national day of prayer and remembrance. Betsy Howard, who has lived in the city for two years, covered her face with trembling hands as she sat alone on one of the red-padded pews. "I'm from the New York area. That was my home they destroyed," she said shakily outside the church as cars passed on busy North Brand Boulevard.

Josh Kleinbaum Margo Gabor spent eight months collecting notes with prayers. Some of the notes asked for world peace. Others asked for a cure to multiple sclerosis, which Gabor suffers from. In all, Gabor has more than 1,000 notes, which she planned to deliver to the Western Wall in Jerusalem, a place where some believe prayers are answered. But now, Gabor's most important prayer notes are the ones she places in front of a Jesus candle each night.

"Prayer is for the religious life what original research is for science -- by it, we get direct contact with reality. We pray because we were made for prayer, and God draws us out by breathing Himself in." P.T. Forsyth Last Thursday was a great day in many ways. It was the first of the month, it was the first of May, and it was May Day. I love May Day. When I was young, my friends and family members often gave or received May Baskets, May flowers or big tasty May cookies.

Prayer For America O Thou kind Lord! This gathering is turning to Thee. These hearts are radiant with Thy Love. These minds and spirits are exhilarated by message of Thy glad tidings. O God! Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render this just government victorious.

Mr. Solis is morally and legally correct in arguing that opening prayers at City Council meetings are un-American. Recently, the Supreme Court has ruled that opening high school games with prayers led by school officials is unconstitutional. Pray if you want, pray at City Council meetings if you want, but don't have government officials lead a prayer. The principle of separation of church and state does not forbid prayer; it only forbids government officials -- acting in their official capacity -- from supporting (by offering prayers)

For Charlene Tilton, best known for her long career on “Dallas,” the popular series from the 1970s and 1980s, life has been a series of struggles. But God and acting have been her safe havens, she said Thursday morning at the 51st Annual Glendale Mayor's Prayer Breakfast. Each has helped her in a different way. God became her support system and acting allowed her to forget the tribulations of growing up poor with a sick, single mother. God first became her lifeline when her mother had a nervous breakdown on a train ride from Los Angeles, where they lived at the time, to visit family in Nebraska, she told a room of about 170 people at the Civic Auditorium.

Did Pat Boone receive a speaker's fee for his appearance at the Mayor's Prayer Breakfast, or was he just allowed to use that forum to sell his most recent book? The whole concept of a prayer breakfast rubs me the wrong way. The mayor (and the city council) should pay attention to city business. They can pray on their own time, in their own church. Don't use any city funds to pray for guidance. David Foster Glendale

The rafters were raised at the Verdugo Woodlands Dad's Club's Youth House for a century-old gentleman. Glendale resident Arthur Chase Moore was feted by some 200 of his closest friends and family in celebration of his 100th birthday (actually on the following day). The location was chosen because Art was the oldest “Ancient Lovely” to participate in the Father's Follies at the Club last year when he was a mere 99-year-old. At that time he received a standing ovation. But on this balmy, Saturday afternoon (Mar.

MISSION HILLS - With 11.2 seconds left and possession of the ball, the Renaissance Academy boys' basketball team had an opportunity to come full circle with its second-half rally. The Wildcats had trailed El Camino Real by double digits as late as the third quarter, but surged the rest of the way to come to within one. Out of the timeout, the Wildcats turned the ball over trying to find Jessy Cantinol open at the top of the three-point arc. They committed a quick foul and the Conquistadors drained both shots.
