The School . . . of Fish?
In Cursillo, as in our Christian faith, to be a Leader means to be a true and authentic Follower. To be a Follower means to be a true and natural Leader. The first shall be last, and the last shall be first. Our Lord Jesus became as a slave and washed his Disciples’ dirty, smelly feet. He commanded them to do likewise.
When He began his public ministry, He promised those Disciples that they would become fishers of men. He taught them in the Faith and offered them the Sacraments as visible signs of His ever-lasting presence and love. They became the followers who, by sharing His love in those Sacraments, would lead their friends and family in their Movable Square Yards to become His followers. Those followers then became leaders, who would lead their friends to Christ. In an unbroken line of leaders and followers, Christ has been building His Kingdom one person at a time, the followers becoming leaders.
This makes perfect sense: the fish become the fishermen – – the followers become the leaders. There is security in numbers, and the school of fish lives for the greater good of the others. Sounds like the School of Leaders!
Our School of Leaders will meet on April 10, at 7 pm in the Parish Center of St. Joseph’s Parish in Freeburg, IL. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, May 8, June 12, and July 10, at locations to be announced in the 4th Day Prayer chain. Our 4th Day gained 34 friends this year! Please join the Leaders!
Romans 1: 12: “What I mean is that both you and I will be helped at the same time, you by my faith and I by yours.”
De Colores and Peace!
