Preamble to the CWV Constitution

We… American Citizens… members of the Catholic Church... under the spiritual authority of our Holy Father, the Pope, Bishop of Rome… and who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States… in order that we may be bound by a greater spirit of faith and patriotism… and that we may be of greater service to God, Country, and to one another… and in order to perpetuate our ideas and ideals… establish a permanent organization.
