Cursillos in Christianity is a Movement which, by its own Method, attempts from within the Church, to give life to the essential Christian truths in the singularity, originality and creativity of the person. In discovering their potential and accepting their limitations, they will direct their freedom with their conviction, reinforce their will with decisiveness and direct their friendship with the virtue of constancy in their day-to-day life, personally and with others.
Cursillos in Christianity (Spanish: for “Short courses in Christianity”) is an apostolic movement of the Roman Catholic Church. It was founded in Majorca, Spain, by a group of laymen in 1944, while they were refining a technique to train pilgrimage Christian leaders.
Everything that we are called to be in Cursillo is based on friendship with the strategy of Make a Friend, Be a Friend, and Bring your Friend to Christ. DeColores!
“One important thing about your movement: you have not engaged in proselytism,” in shouting matches or forcing fliers into people’s hands, but instead offer friendship, kindness and a Christian witness, he said. “This is a virtue. The Church does not grow through proselytism, but through witness as Pope Benedict told us.”
“When you realize that God has been so good, so tender, so merciful – this has to come out, this has to be shared with others”, Pope Francis said.
