The Cursillo movement in the Diocese of Laredo, Texas is alive and well! For those of you who are searching, Cursillos in Christianity is a movement for Catholic renewal that begins with a short, three-day course in Christianity. Typically, a Cursillo begins on a Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. and ends on a Sunday evening at 7:30 p.m. The Cursillo weekend is composed of talks given by lay men/women and clergy. The Cursillo is centered on the Eucharist and the talks are interwoven with prayer, meditation, daily Mass and Holy Communion. The movement is supported by the "Fourth Day Community," men and women who have lived a Cursillo and who have persevered in their walk with Christ.
"You are being asked by Him to proclaim his name untiringly to those who do not yet know Him. He is calling you to his service, to the service of his truth, the truth which makes us free. Endeavor to restore the beauty of the first Christian communities which prompted pagans to say with admiration: 'See how they love one another.'" --Saint John Paul II's 29 July 2000 Message to the Third World Ultreya (http://www.tulsacursillo.org/johnpaulii.htm)
