From Nick Lang:
De Colores, Dear Cursillistas:
Our Loving God has brought our world back to life in this springtime of beauty and color. May your hearts be filled with this radically amazing event of His creation. I recently read that God didn’t have to give us color. Oh, what a blessing it is to us that He did so.
With all the new growth taking place, my soul longs for new growth in our Cursillo movement. I hope and pray that each of you is busy planning for new candidates for the 2016 weekends. Have your groups pray with you for the friend you desire to bring to Cursillo.
I think we should spend some time reading our Leaders Manual (chapter 9 and specifically pages 93 – 96) to gain a better understanding of the sponsorship process and the responsibilities involved. There is also a small booklet available from Linda Bagsby (618-960-1023) on sponsoring.
So often we think we are finished once an application is turned in to the pre-cursillo chairperson. This is just the last step in the preparation phase. After the candidate has made his/her weekend we have many responsibilities to see that they are properly introduced to life in their Fourth Day. Get your friends into a friendship group and attending Ultreyas and the School of Leaders. Stay abreast of their growth and involvement with Cursillistas. Your friendship does not end at the closing of their weekend.
The application and dates of the weekends are available on our website, www.BellevilleCursillo.org.
God Bless you all, Nick
