What happens after the Cursillo?

The weekend lasts three days; the fourth day is the rest of one’s life, and Cursillistas are urged to make some sort of commitment to God to intensify the growth and deepening of their faith. The Cursillo weekend neither pretends nor is able to give a complete Catholic formation in just three days. Cursillistas are…

St. John

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Edmund Burke

I was already attending daily mass and praying the rosary daily when I lived my Cursillo Weekend but I realized during my weekend that I was not giving the importance, respect, reverence and devotion to the sacraments required from a practicing Catholic. I was not in grace due to these facts. Once I followed the sacraments, I fell deeply in love with the Lord. I noticed a real conversion internally once I started to give the sacraments my full attention. My life had never been so full of joy and peace. I have an immense love for my brothers and sisters- in-Christ whereever I meet them. I openly confess my love for God and His sacraments. Man’s salvation is Jesus and with the Church and His sacraments that He left behind to minister us into a holy life..
