The two third graders, dressed all in white, stood in the vestibule of St. Philip Neri Roman Catholic Church, their faces almost as pale as their First Communion outfits. Emily McNichol and Michael O'Donnell were all spiffed up and waiting to meet Philadelphia Archbishop Anthony J. Bevilacqua to present him with a spiritual bouquet of prayers on behalf of 14,700 schoolchildren in Montgomery County. They couldn't even speak, they were so nervous. And then he walked in, his face all smiles beneath the miter with the tall peaks.

Woody Harrelson - yes, that one - has inserted himself into a controversial instruction by Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey who says it's OK for parents to discipline kids with a "gentle slap. " Last week Carey, father of four and grandfather of five, said the slap was fine "as long as it is done with love and with firm discipline within the family setup. " In a letter published yesterday in London's Independent newspaper, Harrelson wrote: "I was wondering, now that my oldest daughter is nearly 4 years old and gaining strength, how long I have to wait before I can start slapping my newborn.

Anthony Joseph Bevilacqua, the son of Italian immigrants and the current bishop of Pittsburgh, was named yesterday by Pope John Paul II to succeed Cardinal John Krol as archbishop of Philadelphia. Bishop Bevilacqua sat at Cardinal Krol's side yesterday morning as the 77- year-old cardinal said that, more than two years after he reached retirement age, his resignation had finally been accepted by the Pope. "Philadelphia deserves much better service than I am able at this stage of my life to give," Cardinal Krol said during the news conference at his residence at 5700 City Ave. "They tell me that after you're 70, six months can make a big difference.

Msgr. Arturo Rivera y Damas yesterday charged that the FBI mistreated a key witness to last month's slayings of six Jesuit priests, forcing her to recant her testimony. In one of his strongest criticisms of U.S. officials, the San Salvador archbishop said in his weekly homily that witness Lucia Barrera de Cerna had been submitted to "aggressive and violent . . . psychological torment. " U.S. Ambassador William Walker strongly denied that there was any effort to discredit the witness or that she was mistreated in any way. "The United States government and the FBI do not mistreat people, do not torture people they are trying to get information from," Walker said in an interview yesterday.

He became bishop of Berlin, then a divided city, in 1989 and was later promoted to archbishop and cardinal.

Philadelphia Archbishop Anthony J. Bevilacqua called for compassion for AIDS victims yesterday in a rocky, first-ever prayer service by the prelate for those suffering from the disease. But about 100 gay activists at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, well within earshot of the archbishop, chanted "Bevilacqua's full of s-," to protest the church's opposition to condom distribution in Philadelphia public schools. And in the midst of Bevilacqua's homily, a member of the group Act Up stepped up to the pulpit and laid wrapped condoms next to the archbishop's hands and sprinkled them at his feet.

NEW ORLEANS - Former Archbishop Philip Matthew Hannan, who gave the eulogy for President John F. Kennedy and later served more than three decades as the head of the New Orleans Roman Catholic Archdiocese, died yesterday. He was 98. Hannan was the 11th archbishop in New Orleans history and one of the most active. When he turned 75 and had to retire as archbishop, he became president of WLAE-TV, the public television station he founded. Assigned to New Orleans in 1965 from Washington, where he had been auxiliary bishop since 1956, he found that the old St. Louis Cathedral, in the middle of an area of the French Quarter swarming with tourists, street performers, tarot card readers and musicians, had a unique pleasure for a churchman.

Just before 3 p.m., the procession entered the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. Pastors from the 288 parishes walked in pairs as some of their members waved. About 1,400 people stood in front of pews and folding metal chairs. They had come to the Mass of Thanksgiving to honor the 10th anniversary of Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua as Archbishop of Philadelphia in the same place where he was consecrated on Feb. 11, 1988. Since then, the cardinal has restructured the administration of the archdiocese, created regional offices to alleviate some of his duties, closed and consolidated parishes and spoken out against racism.

The pilgrim said, "Mazel tov. " As Cardinal-designate Anthony J. Bevilacqua left the altar of a chapel near the Vatican after an evening service yesterday, Rabbi Bernard Frank grasped his hand and offered the traditional Jewish greeting of congratulation. Rabbi Frank said his journey to Rome had its beginnings in a visit by Bevilacqua to Frank's congregation, Temple Beth Torah, in Northeast Philadelphia, to speak at Friday night services last March. "I said this is the year that he would become a cardinal," explained Frank, a Reform rabbi.

Between them, St. Joseph's Prep and Archbishop Wood have captured five PIAA state football championships since 2011. Sadly for local football enthusiasts, the Southeastern Pennsylvania juggernauts did not meet the last two years because of an adjustment in Catholic League scheduling. The heated rivalry was renewed Friday night in front of a large crowd at William Tennent's Claude Lodge Field and a national TV audience. In the Catholic League Red Division opener for both squads that was shown on ESPNU, the Prep pulled away with three fourth-quarter scores and easily triumphed, 43-24, in Warminster.

  In my consulting work, I have on occasion assisted individuals intent on creating a start-up company. I tell them they must come up with a comprehensive business plan that answers key questions related to the prospects for success in the proposed venture. Some time ago I came upon just such a business plan, remarkable for many reasons, just one of which was the fact that it was written in 1947, well before the advent of many modern business practices. Also, the entrepreneur was a woman.

ISSUE | CHURCH Communion questionnaire So Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput gets to decide for the disenfranchised Catholics of Philadelphia what Pope Francis clearly did not say in Amoris Laetitia ? The sheer arrogance and un-Christian attitude of Chaput continue to stun (" Chaput edict scorned, praised ," Thursday). One can only cling to the belief that Jesus never intended Communion be reserved for the few and the chaste. Funny, there were no questions posed about "state of grace" at the Last Supper.

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound sharpshooter, who announced his commitment to play basketball for coach John Gallagher and Hartford last August, reopened his recruitment last month. "I just didn't want to go there anymore," Daly said without getting into specifics. "Coach Gallagher is a great guy. I just wasn't feeling it in my heart.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Bailey Greenberg calls her cousin Shannon May, her teammate on the Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team, the "little annoying one" on the court. It stems from her performance in practice, where often, Greenberg is low post and May slides down in a help defense. "Go guard your own girl," Greenberg thinks to herself when she sees No. 3 come her way. But the "pest" won't, that's not what she's made of. Instead, May wears the nickname - a term of endearment - as a badge of honor.
