What is Cursillo?
Cursillos in Christianity is a movement within the 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. In becoming aware of their potential and while accepting their limitations they exercise their freedom by their conviction, strengthen their will with their decision, to propitiate friendship in virtue of their constancy in both their personal and community life.
The Cursillo Movement consists of proclaiming the best news of the best reality: that God, in Christ, loves us. Communicated by the best means, which is friendship towards the best of each one, which is the person and his capacity of Conviction, Decision, and Constancy.
The word “cursillo” is a Spanish word which means “short course”. During a three-day Cursillo weekend each attendee (“candidate”) is provided a short course in what it means to live the Christian life.
