I met with Matt at the Pastoral Center last week and spoke with him about Cursillo. He looked at the website, asked about School of Leaders and several other things and I invited him to School and to the next Mass. At the end of the conversation I told him we would be praying for him and for the success of the sessions so please keep Matt and this ministry in your prayers.
If you can attend any of the forums, please find a moment to introduce yourself to Matt as a Cursillista.
And let us continue to do palanca, prayer and sacrifice wrapped in love, for the teams and candidates God is choosing for our next weekends. Let us also pray to be open to all those in our movable square meter, maybe people who we may not usually consider as those with whom the Lord is calling us to form a relationship.
