The Joyful Proclamation of Being Christian!
In today´s world can Christianity penetrate the many areas of secular life? Can it live there? Can it grow there? Can it transform the world in a way that is more fruitful than the past and in keeping with the times?
The Cursillo Movement thinks so. It proposes no new type of spirituality, but simply a method through which one´s spirituality may be developed, lived and shared in any area of human life where there are Christians willing to dedicate their lives to God in an ongoing manner.
The method is introduced by a short course -- Cursillo.
Here a 2.5 minutes clip from the Vatican reporting Pope Francis addressing 7,000 cursillistas in Rome. This link leads to the entire 1-hour audience
To All Cursillistas,
De Colores! God, in his infinite love and care for his Church, gives his graces and charisms to men and women in our midst who unfold for us his treasures.
Cursillo has been an incredible gift to the universal Church throughout the world, and I have experienced the benefit of it in my personal life since my childhood in México where my parents were deeply committed with the movement for many, many years with great joy.
The Archdiocese of Seattle has enjoyed the wonderful Cursillo charism for many years now and hundreds of families have been blessed with authentic endless peace; I pray the blessed Virgin Mary will give you the strength and docility to keep on ministering in our Archdiocese of Seattle for many years to come.
Thank you for all you have done and count on my prayers and support.
Yours in Christ and our Lady of Guadalupe +,
Eusebio Elizondo m.sp.s., Auxiliary Bishop of Seattle
