To explain CURSILLO to someone who has never experienced Cursillo is at best, difficult. Often, for those who have experienced Cursillo it is still somewhat mystifying. This is not because the Cursillo Movement is a “secret” organization. The reason behind the mystery is God. No one can fully explain how God touches each person in His special, unique way throughout the various elements of the Cursillo Movement.
Cursillo (pronounced kur-see-yo) is a Spanish word meaning a short course. It is an abbreviated form of Cursillo de Cristiandad (short course to prepare Christians). It is not a theoretical course, nor is it a retreat. It is first and foremost an experience. It must be lived. It is a life-changing experience, which brings with it the discovery of the basis of Christianity and its fundamental significance to our lives. For information on upcoming retreat dates see: Holy Cross Retreat House, Easton MA (Adjacent to Stonehill College Campus) www.retreathouse.org
