Ugandan archbishop urges expatriates to return home
Catholic World News - June 23, 2010
Preaching at a Mass in Boston at the invitation of Cardinal Sean O’Malley, Uganda’s leading prelate urged Ugandans living abroad to return to their native land.
“It is good to move out in places like America and get experience, but please come back home and develop your roots,” Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga said on June 22.

"How 'ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm...?" Sadly, the "BRAIN DRAIN" is not a problem only for Ugandans. It affects people from all Third World countries. Not a few U.S. bishops respond to the vocations shortage by recruiting Third World priests -- who are even more badly needed back home.
