Last fall as we prepared for and presented the Women's Cursillo weekend I truly experienced a community of women who fully "loved one another". I have been involved in so many experiences within the Church and outside the Church. Never before had I experienced a team of women who all fully and selflessly gave of themselves in service to "love one another" ...to live as Christ. This beautiful team of Christians when joined with the candidates... quickly became a larger community of Christians desiring to live out the call to love one another. I have experienced the same working with the Secretariat...what a joy it is to serve with so many who also have the passion to "love one another" as Christ commanded. Cursillo has been such a gift in my life....a gift that must be shared!
Now we have walked with Jesus...we suffered with Jesus... we truly remember the sacrifice He made for each one of us! To truly "love" us meant He had to truly sacrifice and suffer for our failings. He gave the ultimate sacrifice...His life... for You...and me. To "love one another" means we also must sacrifice and maybe even suffer so we may more dearly know Jesus and so we can share more clearly who He is to others. Down the Via Dolorosa...Jesus shows us the way. As Cursillistas we must understand how imperative and how fruitful our palanca truly is! In these next few months, would you please truly offer great Palanca for the upcoming Women's Cursillo weekend. May our candidates experience the weekend as never before...may they experience Christ...may they cling to the Holy Spirit to live the Gospel! We are Cursillistas...Cursillo is our call to live the Gospel and to build the Kingdom! Rejoice! Jesus Christ has risen...conquered death...the death of sin! The greatest story ever told...the greatest gift ever given! Cursillo has given us a way to embrace this gift more dearly and to share this gift in an amazing way! We are preparing a team of women that will say YES to God's call. Our goal is for 30 candidates! There are many who have been asked but have not yet committed. I am calling on all Cursillistas to pray, sacrifice, and invite. This is an amazing gift...a life changing gift...trust the Holy Spirit and invite those on your heart...then pray, sacrifice, invite...repeat over and over again! Christ is depending on US! Thank you for the way you "love one another"! I wish you all a blessed Easter celebration!!! Sharon Matkin
