Someone recently wrote that the ACW is a Dying-church (ouch) and encourage others to join theirs; this is not very Christ-like but we must consider the source.
This writer embraces the ACW motto “Reaching out to the world” as is evident at the Archdiocese where over 1000 have visited, dined and some lodged in the last 2-years, but our most delightful signal is the “FLAGS”-OF-THE-WORLD” we fly.
The ACW is in possession of all “FLAGS” of the world. We are also in possession of State & Provinces of all countries (over 500), we proudly fly them. When there is conflict in a country, we fly-in-prayer; independence-days, we fly-in-honor and when a guest is in residence, ..................

The phrase that is attached to this is “it's all about you” propped up by thunderous-excuses by those claiming to be friends, but LOYALTY is not to be used for convenience. A recent lesson was personally-painful, but was overshadowed, by the LOYALTY of others.

There are over 19,000-cities in the USA. I’ve visited at lease 10,000.

Driving across Route-40 from San Francisco, California to Atlanta in 1992, (took 2-weeks) I’m sure I passed thru 1,000. I’ve visited 49 of the 50 states; IDAHO escapes me.
I’ve traveled to Huntsville-Alabama and many of its cities (AMOIC). Morgantown-West-Virginia. There was darkness all day in Alaska as I traveled to Nome. IDAHO remains a mystery. I’ve lived in Pine-Bluff- Arkansas AMOIC...

There are 55 countries on this beloved continent, most of whose citizens are caught up in the corruption of their government with leaders who promise to root out corruption but then begin their own piggy bank and democracy flies through the window bringing death and starvation to their innocent citizens. There is not much the world can do. Whatever has to be done in Africa must be done by Africans.
A report by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) stated that 10 of the countries in Africa would take $473 trillion to bring their infrastructure in order. They looked at Benin, Burkina-Faso, Central-African-Republic, Democratic-Republic-Of-Congo, Ethiopia, ...
