Holy See Recognizes Cursillo ... On
June 11, 2004, the Cursillo Movement was recognized officially by the Holy
See. The Movement received the decree of recognition during the course
of a Liturgy of the Word, at the headquarters of the Pontifical Council
for the Laity, presided over by Archbishop Stanislaw Rylko. At a
May 2002 meeting with Cursillo representatives, John Paul II encouraged
the process of discernment that led to the Holy See’s decree. Since
the first Cursillo Weekend in 1944, the Cursillo Movement has spread across
the world and is now present in 60 countries, with some 5 million cursillistas
having lived the Three Days.
News From Secretariat ...
National Palanca Intentions ... The Secretariat
continues to encourage our Diocese to join cursillistas across the country
in offering Palanca for the following intentions each week: Mondays
– for all Secretariats, National, Regional, and Diocesan; Tuesdays
– for all SOL’s; Wednesdays – for all cursillistas in the United
States; Thursdays – for the Cursillo Movement’s Apostolic actions;
and Fridays – for all Three Day Cursillo Weekends.
Pastoral Plan ... Recall that the Pastoral
Plan serves as a blueprint for the future of Cursillo in our Diocese ...
it gives direction for the future by identifying the work to be
After much discussion and review, the Secretariat
approved the final document on May 28, 2004. You may access the completed
Pastoral Plan from the Lincoln Diocesan Cursillo Web page (www.home.alltel.net/sj05420/cursillolincoln/).
Please check it out, and see what ways you can help make the Plan a reality.
The first step is to have a plan ... now we need to follow through.
If each cursillista in the Diocese picked just one recommendation to work
on, then a year from now, the Cursillo Movement in the Lincoln Diocese
would be significantly stronger ... it all adds up! Thank you to
all those who participated in the process and have contributed to the development
of this Pastoral Plan ... may God bless our efforts!
Planning Ahead -- A Year at a Glance ...
Secretariat discussed the new tentative/proposed schedule of Cursillo activities
for the Lincoln Diocese for the next year (2004-2005).
is on the back of the insert with the Lay Director and Spiritual Advisor
comments.] The schedule includes activities from the present
through August 2005. It includes upcoming Secretariat meetings, quarterly
SOLs, Three Day Cursillo Weekends, and Regional and National Encounters,
etc. The tentative/proposed schedule is an attempt to provide cursillistas
with enough notice to allow them to adjust their schedules to participate
in Cursillo to the fullest extent possible.
School of Leaders (SOL) ... The next quarterly
SOL will be held at Sacred Heart School in Crete (NOT Shelby) on July 9-10,
2004. The Doctrinal Topics will be taken from Section One of Part
Four of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (“Christian Prayer: Prayer
in the Christian Life”). The Technique Topics will be taken from
the second half of the booklet, Our Fourth Day, the stated purpose
of which is “to help you grow in the life and love of the Lord and fulfill
your call to be a saint and an apostle for Him.”
In addition to formation (the topics mentioned above)
and holiness (Mass, Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, visit to the Blessed
Sacrament), we do the work of Cursillo in the Diocese ... we evangelize
the Cursillo Movement. Even if you have never come before, please
prayerfully consider coming in July ... there is no beginning and there
is no end ... it is your gift to the Lord when you arrange your schedule
to be there. See the registration form included in this newsletter.
Precursillo: Please continue to pray
for the teams being formed, and for the candidates that God is calling
you to prepare and invite to these Weekends. It is important that
you follow the Sponsor Guidelines on the blue page of the three-page application
packet (enclosed) ... the guidelines are in place to direct the selection
of candidates and their proper preparation, and to remind sponsors of the
commitment they are making to their candidates.
Of particular importance:
A sponsor should ALWAYS confer with a prospective candidate’s pastor
TO inviting the person to make a weekend. This is important because
the pastor might know of some reason that a person should not make a weekend,
and once an invitation has been extended, it is very awkward to un-invite
Pay careful attention to the questions on the sponsor form that relate
to you, the sponsor.
Before you sign the Sponsor Sheet, know what you are committing yourself
to as a sponsor.
Three Day Weekend:
Fall Cursillo Weekends ... The Fall Weekends
are scheduled as follows: Men’s - Sept. 23-26, 2004, and Women’s - Oct.
14-17, 2004. They will be held at Sacred Heart School, Shelby,
NE. As noted above under Precursillo, an application packet is included
in this Newsletter.
PLEASE prepare candidates early. The earlier
candidates are prepared and invited, the earlier the applications can be
completed … the easier it is to keep the 4th Day community informed about
the candidates for the Three Day Weekends ... and the better the sponsors
can prepare the candidates for the Three Days and for the Fourth Day.
Grand Ultreya / Evangelization Walk ... The
Grand Ultreya will be held at Van Dorn Park, (near 9th and Van Dorn), in
Lincoln, NE, June 27, 2004 (see separate pink insert).
On the back of the pink Grand Ultreya insert, you
will find a pledge sheet for the Evangelization Walk (coming to the Grand
Ultreya does NOT require you to participate in the Evangelization Walk).
We encourage you to contact people you see in Church each week (cursillistas
and non-cursillistas alike), or persons you work with, or those in your
neighborhood ... let them know that we are spreading Christ’s message of
LOVE ... encourage them to help us by either walking with us, praying with
us, or, if they are able, supporting us with a financial contribution.
T-Shirts will be given to anyone with pledges over $25.00.
Survey of Gifts / Talents ... In the September
/ October Newsletter, we plan to include a survey of gifts / talents /
etc ... to gather information to better do the work of Cursillo and to
prepare for the next update of the Cursillo directory.
Region VI Palanca Calendar for July / August ...
is included with this Newsletter. Please post it somewhere ... in
your home ... office ... car ... so that you will be reminded to join cursillistas
throughout the Region in offering Palanca for the intentions listed.
Palanca is the lever and the backbone of the Cursillo Movement. Make
it be your lever and your backbone!
Bloom where you are planted!!
From the Lay Director ... I’d
like to begin with today’s Magnificat meditation (entitled “The Fruit of
the Tree” by Servant of God Catherine de Hueck Doherty):
“The moment when you hear God’s call is a moment
of recognition, a moment of receptivity and of deep openness. It
is the moment when all we have to do is realize that we are creatures,
and that it is God Who calls us.
“What is He calling us to? He is calling
us to what each of us most deeply desires. He is calling us to a
life that will bear fruit, for sterility is the most tragic thing that
can happen to us. Remember the parable of the fig tree? God
offers us fertility. He offers us a life of unimaginable fruitfulness
“We crave greatness for our lives, and God asks
us to become little. To pass through the door that leads to His kingdom,
we must go down on our knees. Paradoxically, if we do so, we will
find ourselves growing in stature, for ‘eye has not seen and ear has not
heard what God has reserved for those who love Him.’
“This is a moment of choice. It is one
of many such moments, for we will be called to choose every day of our
lives until we die. But the fantastic thing about it is our freedom.
We are utterly free to turn back from this power that draws us on.
We are free to loose ourselves from the bonds of a love that demands our
total surrender. Nothing prevents us from saying no. Nothing
except God’s love.”
What is He calling YOU to? How does He want
YOU to bear fruit in YOUR life? Are YOU receptive? Are YOU
open? Remember, He’s offering you a life of unimaginable fruitfulness
Cursillo is a gift of the Holy Spirit given to Eduardo
Bonnin in Majorca, Spain, more than 60 years ago. It was the work
that God called Eduardo to, and thanks to his response to the promptings
of the Holy Spirit those many years ago, all of us have been given that
gift as well. Cursillo made, and continues to make, a significant
difference in my life … it changed me, and continues to change me …
And because of its impact on me, Cursillo has had a significant effect
on the lives of my family and all those with whom I come into contact.
That’s exactly how the Holy Spirit intended Cursillo to work … one life
affecting another life … those two lives affecting still other lives …
and so on … as long as each affected life CHOOSES to respond … And
Catherine Doherty is right … we ARE free to loose ourselves from the bonds
of a love that demands total surrender … nothing DOES prevent us from saying
no … nothing except God’s love … and I don’t want to say no to Him.
I WANT to work to share Cursillo with others.
There is much work to be done in Cursillo … and
the Movement is designed such that that work is to be done in the SOL.
I wanted to use Catherine Doherty’s words as a jumping off point to try
once more to clear up some misconceptions that persist about SOL in the
Diocese. There are those who believe that the purpose of SOL is to
“qualify” you to be on the Rollo team … not true … Participation
in SOL makes you available to be invited to be on the Rollo team, but it
doesn’t guarantee or “qualify” you in any way. Then there are those
who wouldn’t mind helping with the work of Cursillo, but they fear that
if they go to SOL, they’ll HAVE TO be on the Rollo team … again, not true.
There is much, much, much work to be done and we need many hands and hearts
to carry out the work of Cursillo in our Diocese. Is God calling
you to use the gifts/talents that He gave you to carry out the many and
varied tasks that are so necessary for Cursillo to be a gift to others
… just as it was to you?
The Secretariat and SOL recently completed an update
of our Diocesan Pastoral Plan … it is the culmination of ideas offered
by participants in several of the quarterly SOLs. It is a wonderful
plan … very much guided by the Holy Spirit … full of the ideas of cursillistas
who very much love God and want to do His work through the Cursillo Movement
(the Plan is available on the diocesan Cursillo website at www.home.alltel.net
/sj05420/cursillolincoln/). Please take a few minutes to look at
the Pastoral Plan … it contains many, many ideas about ways to respond
to God’s call for you to bear fruit in your life through the Cursillo Movement
… He doesn’t ask that you harvest the whole crop … He just asks that you
pick up a few pieces of the fruit … then offer it to others … As
Catherine Doherty says, “This is a moment of choice … It is one
of many such moments, for we will be called to choose every day of our
lives until we die.” What will you choose?
The Holy See recently announced its official recognition
of the Cursillo Movement as a valid means of bearing fruit for our Lord
… in its original form, it has borne fruit for 60 years, and the Holy See
recognizes that it has the potential to do so for many years to come …
Please join us in the work of Cursillo in our Diocese … Many hands
make light work … it’s His work … What WILL you choose?
I’d like to close with comments from some of the
participants from the April SOL (in about five minutes at the end, participants
were asked to share their thoughts):
Many of these things we heard during the Three Days,
but we need to be reminded over and over again … we’re constantly challenged
to live them anew … EACH DAY … It is good to be reminded …
The quarterly SOL is not unlike the Fourth Day Retreats that were held
in the winters of 1999 and 2000 to spiritually renew those who had already
lived their Three Day Weekends. It is a means of encouraging one
another along this path called life … Ultreya!! That is, Onward!!
“As a Fourth Dayer, to be authentic, we need to evangelize by our
actions to make our words real. To evangelize is to make our attempt
… it is not whether we are successful or fail … it is just to plant the
seeds … God’s time is not our time …”
“Our genuine apostolic efforts are what God asks of us – success
or failure has no bearing upon us … Friendship groups and Ultreya help
us keep the closeness to God that we realized on our Three Day Weekend
… Actions speak louder than words; is it not always necessary to
speak in order to evangelize others.”
“Remember the Service Sheet … the little piece of paper we made out
at our Weekend? We put goals on there in the areas of Piety, Study,
and Apostolic Action (Holiness, Formation, and Evangelization). One
idea is to use that sheet for weekly reunions – how can we work toward
the goals if we don’t even remember them? Did we make an effort this
week in each area? That’s what counts, not ‘how many Masses’ or whether
someone that we invited came to an Ultreya … but did we make the effort?
GOD does the rest – we can count on it!”
“I think the importance of planned goals and ways to take action
would definitely enrich our Cursillo experience in the Fourth Day and help
keep us accountable to our Holy Spirit-given goals. I think also
the rotating of each weekly group to prepare for an Ultreya would be a
tremendous reason or way to help revitalize our Ultreyas and get more involvement.”
“Apostolic Actions: Do not focus so much as to the success
or failure of our apostolic action, but on the prayer, efforts, and work
put forth to carry out the apostolic action. Value of Postcursillo:
Progress in living the Christian life in the promises made on the Weekend
to give us the tools to live the Ideal. The primary objective is
for each person to find his or her unique place in the Church and the world,
for the Postcursillo to provide them with the means to persevere in living
the Christian life there.”
“The purpose of the Cursillo is to live a method of perseverance
which entails slow, steady conversion. It takes time. We will
not experience mountaintop highs every week, but we are called to continue
conversion step by step. The purpose of the Three Day Weekend is
to make plans to discharge the candidates (new Fourth Dayers) back into
their environments. Ultreya and Group Reunions provide community
… we cannot persevere alone.”
“We need to root the Three Days in the Fourth Day of perseverance.
Piety … we need to plan for piety … are you keeping your commitment?
Study is an obligation! In Evangelization, the outcome is up to God
… the effort comes from us. Postcursillo is slow and steady … but
it guarantees progress. The Weekend gives a tool to get to success.”
“There are no apostolic failures if the effort was there. Our
success is measured by our effort. What we experience in Ultreya
or Group Reunion is a consequence of the effort we put into it. We
grow in baby steps – but we must keep stepping. Our program of study
should be one that helps us grow more in line with the Gospel. Our
witness should give validity to the truth.”
At each SOL, there are talks given by both lay persons
and priests, and there is discussion and sharing that follows (just like
during the Three Days), first within a small group and then in the larger
group. Prayer and the sacraments are a big part of each SOL, including
a “retreat phase” on Friday evening that is very similar to Thursday of
the Three Day Weekend. If you cannot come for both Friday (it begins
about 7:30 p.m.) and Saturday (we usually end about 3:30 p.m.), then please
join us for that time that you are able. Palanca is the backbone
of the Movement, so if you are not able to join us, please offer Palanca
for the formation and evangelization that will occur at SOL … At
SOL, we “become little” as Catherine Doherty says that we should … “we
go down on our knees” … both thanking Him for all He does for us and asking
Him how He wants us to bear fruit … If you want to help, but you’re
not sure how, come and see … Please join us as we put our talents toward
furthering the work of Cursillo in our Diocese … we’re counting on Him
for the success!!
De Colores! Kathy Springer
From the Spiritual Advisor ... As
I write these lines, we are preparing to celebrate the Solemnity of the
Birth of St. John the Baptist tomorrow (June 24). There are only
three birthdays that we celebrate in the Church’s liturgical year: Jesus,
Mary, and St. John the Baptist. That fact should direct our attention
to the importance of this day, and to the importance of the person.
St. John the Baptist was the herald of the Good News ... he prepared the
way for Christ. However, although he is important in the History
of Salvation, St. John the Baptist was willing to decrease so that Christ
Those who were present after the birth of St. John
the Baptist when he was given his name ... those who witnessed the return
of speech to his father, Zechariah, when he named him “John” ... were amazed.
“All who heard these things took them to heart, saying, ‘What, then,
will this child be?’ For surely the hand of the Lord was with him
... The child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the desert
until the day of his manifestation to Israel.” (Lk 1:66,80)
St. John the Baptist knew his role ... He was to
prepare the way for Christ ... to make Him known to the world. Only
a small portion of his life was lived in the public eye ... and even then,
he pointed to the One Who would come after Him. In preparation for
his ministry, he was in the desert and grew and became strong in spirit
... he spent time with God ... He was so committed to proclaiming the Word
... faithfully and boldly ... that he died for the Word.
Our role is also to make Christ known in the world.
We must desire to make Him known ... not ourselves. All that we do
must be to make this world a better place ... to Christianize the world
... to bring Christ to those we meet. To do that, we must also spend
time in the desert ... spend time with Christ in quiet prayer ... especially
prayer before the Blessed Sacrament ... the Word made Flesh ... the Bread
of Life ... becoming strong in spirit.
Our world is, in a way, not that much different
from the world of St. John the Baptist. He was sent to call people
to repentance. He called a sin a sin ... he told King Herod that
it was not right to be living with the wife of his brother Philip ... that
was not popular or well received then ... or now ... but it is the truth
... and needed to be said then, and needs to be said now. We are
heralds of the truths of our faith ... the truths of the Church ... the
truths of Jesus Christ ... Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
St. John the Baptist wanted to be faithful to the truth and knew that he
was but the voice of the Word of God. We too, are to be the voice
of Christ in the world.
Like St. John the Baptist, we spent time in the
desert ... on our Three Day Weekend ... with our Lord, with others seeking
to grow in a relationship with Him. You might have asked yourself
on that Weekend or during your Fourth Day: (‘What, then, will this child
be?’) ... Who am I? ... What does God want me to do? Who does
He want me to become?
The restoration of speech to Zechariah at the naming
of St. John the Baptist was amazing ... the experiences of the Three Day
Weekend are amazing. But the restoration of speech to Zechariah was
not for Zechariah, but to point the way to St. John the Baptist ... and
St. John the Baptist was not to draw attention to himself, but to point
the way to Jesus. The experiences of the Three Day Weekend are not
for the Three Day Weekend itself, but are given to us that we might better
live each Fourth Day ... that we might point the way to Jesus ... that
we might bring His Word into the world ... into our world, right where
we are ... in our Fourth Day.
God does not want us to keep returning to the experience
of the Three Days ... He wants us to keep coming close to the Word of God
... to Jesus ... and to be the voice that announces that Word. How
could St. John the Baptist announce the Word and point to the Word unless
he had first listened to it in the desert? But he did not announce
the Word in the desert, rather he announced It in the world.
He announced the message to all he met ... sinners ... calling them to
repentance ... to conversion. His message was not well liked by most
... but he faithfully announced it. So must we!
The strength to continue to announce the Word to
the world ... to Christianize the world ... comes from spending time with
Him in daily prayer, from listening to His Word. It is also very
helpful to live the Cursillo method of meeting weekly in a Group Reunion
and monthly attending an Ultreya. Spending time with Him, and then
sharing our close moments with others who spend time with Him ... encouraging
others and being encouraged by them, to be formed into Christ’s image and
likeness through our study ... encouraging others and being encouraged
by them to speak the truth of His Word to those that we meet, and to plan
to speak His Truth to a world that needs to hear it each day.
St. John of the Cross said: “Where there is not
love, put love, and you will find love.” Live His love each day
... bring His Words of love into your world each day ... boldly speak and
live the Truth of the Gospel and be willing to decrease so that He can
May God bless each of us as we seek to put His love
and His truth into our world!

close to Thanksgiving, and the Pro-life conference in October, and FB playoffs.

GRAND ULTREYA – It’s a FAMILY event!!
GOD IS GOOD TO US … COME, SHARE THE JOY THAT
WE HAVE FOUND IN CHRIST!
CALL SOMEONE TO CARPOOL WITH YOU!
SEE YOU THERE!
A Grand Ultreya is planned for June 27th
from 11am - 4pm at Van Dorn Park in Lincoln. This is a family-oriented
event -- activities are planned for youth of all ages and adults.
This year we will also be featuring our first ever Evangelization Walk
-- read about it below.
Van Dorn Park is easily accessible – travel south on 9th Street until
you pass the Van Dorn intersection. Turn right on High Street and
follow the “Shelter” sign. There are restroom facilities (not just
bushes to hide behind!!), running water and grills, and there is an enclosed
shelter we can use for Mass. There is a softball diamond and playground
equipment for kids of all ages. It is a pretty park, perfect for
a family get-together for spiritual and social renewal!
We would like to find a date when every single cursillista could come,
but of course that is not possible. This is a once-a-year event –
please try to come if you can, and bring a friend … Our intention is to
have a Grand Ultreya on the last Sunday in June each year. This year,
on June 27, the day is scheduled to begin at 11:00am, with Mass at 11:30am.
We will have Mass all together, then eat our picnic potluck meal.
Following the meal, there will be introductions; then the children will
have the chance to participate in some games/crafts while we do our Ultreya
Small Group Sharing. The witness will follow. And then, we
will participate in the Evangelization Walk (see below), followed by relaxation
time … meaning sitting and visiting for some, participating in youth/adult
softball for some, or volleyball or hiking for others. The day will
conclude around 4:00pm.
This year we will participate in the Cursillo 3rd National Evangelization
Walk. Those who wish to participate may walk along a course that
will be mapped out. Free T-Shirts will be given to anyone with pledges
over $25.00 (pledge sheet on back).
Our diocese is widespread geographically and it is rare that folks
from the east and west all get together. This is a time for cursillistas
AND THEIR FAMILIES to take part in a Cursillo event. All cursillistas
are invited -- religious, single, married -- with children or without --
please come to celebrate what God has done for us! Last year was
great fun -- don’t miss out!
This will be a potluck picnic. Each family will bring a dish
to share. Some have time and enjoy cooking up something at home,
some pick up KFC -- it doesn’t matter if you bring sandwiches or hot dogs
to grill, the idea is to be together. The Secretariat will bring
paper plates, napkins, glasses and plastic-ware; iced tea/water/orange
drink will be provided. Please also bring softball equipment if you’d
like to play.
There will be a jar for donations for use of the park shelter for those
able and wanting to throw in a bit. The fee for the rental of the
shelter is $60. No park sticker is needed.
