FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: A THOUGHT FROM DAVID AND MARY ANN DOWD

Dear Friends,

In the aftermath of the death of Nelson Mandella so much of his life of service has been recounted to the world. Two quotes struck us in particular:

"Service is the rent you pay for space on Earth"

When asked how he endured his 27 years of imprisonment, he answered that "knowing that the movement for which I suffered would win in the end." This kept him going. Mandella fully expected to be put to death when he was arrested, yet he would not betray his cause.

How much are we willing to serve and sacrifice for our movement? To bring the cause of Christianity to our environment? Beloved Cursillistas, stay awake, we know not the day nor the hour.

Merry Christmas! David and Mary Ann Dowd xo xo
