WHAT'S SO HOT ABOUT CURSILLO? by MARY ANN DOWD

Image
(From School of Leaders - April 22, 2017) Please pray with me in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit Amen.  Lord your people assembled before you this day ask for courage, the courage to live out in our daily lives the faith we profess with our lips.  Amen. We start today with a question: “What’s so hot about  Cursillo???”  It’s  a question someone might ask who is not familiar with our movement  or even after we have lived the blessed three days,  we may  ask ourselves, as some of our friends may; how is Cursillo different  from the many other ministries  within the Church? Why would I want to make Cursillo my main Christian action and devote my, time, my talents and energy to it.  This is a fair question and one which I am certain we have all asked ourselves at one time or another. Well Jesus teaches us in Matthew 7:7 “ask and the answer shall be given to you”.   As a matter of fact --HE provided us with a book of answers in the Sacred Scriptures.

A REQUEST FOR PALANCA

All attending  Saturday's  School of Leaders,will have the opportunity to sign a "palanca poster" for the upcoming Kenosis weekend which will occur  April 27 to 30  at New Jersey State Prision (formerly known as Trenton State Prision.) Cursillistas will be asked to sign the poster with their first name and their prayers for those on the Kenosis weekend. Let's support Ray Benedict and the Kenois team by offering our prayers for the weekend and signing the poster.  To learn more about Kenosis, go to this link. 

AN INVITATION

As we continue to celebrate Easter, the Resurrection of the Lord and new beginnings, we strongly urge all our Cursillistas, ESPECIALLY  our newest ones to join us for school this Saturday April 22, 2017.  The reason we say "especially our newest Cursillistas" is that we will be going deeper into our Cursillo movement; refreshing what those of us who have been around for awhile know but may need to be reminded.  And, as we continue to live our fourth day what constitutes the heart of our movement, and keeps Cursillo forever young. In other words we are going to be talking about "What's so hot about Cursillo"????
