Spiritual Quotes about Cursillo from Clergy and Spiritual Leaders
On the threshold of selecting your secretariat member(s), as your Spiritual Advisor, I would like for all of us to read the instructive words from the National Mailing dated October 2007. From that mailing, I extracted two paragraphs that are of particular interest to this secretariat. Reflecting on this document and these two paragraphs, I encourage you to take the self-examination, then - armed with the knowledge of self - correct and adjust the self as you go forth to nominate others. May God protect the Cursillo movement from errors.
Deacon Thai Tran

Please continue to pray for the all Cursillistas who are well into their 4th day and for the outstanding efforts of the team and sponsors for continued success of our community. I offer the following, St Augustine, prayer to cursillos both past and future. It found me the day after the men’s 2016 cursillo and reminded me of the challenges and victories of balancing formation/cursillo/personal life and the results of experiencing the face of Christ in the faces of candidates and the hard working teams!
“Look on us lord, and let all the darkness of our souls disappear before the beams of your brightness. Fill us with your holy love, and open to us the treasures of your wisdom. We seek your face, turn your face to us and show us your glory. Then our longing will be satisfied and our peace will be complete.”
