“Cursillos in Christianity is a movement within the Catholic Church that, through a method of its own, tries to, and through God’s grace manages to: enable the essential realities of the Christian to come to life in the uniqueness, originality, and creativity of each person.”

“The Cursillo Movement consists of a living proclamation of the best news of the best reality: that God, in Christ, loves us. It is communicated by the best means, which is friendship toward one another. “To explain Cursillo to someone who has not experienced Cursillo is, at best, difficult. It’s not because Cursillo is a secret, but because it is a living experience that one must encounter first hand.”
