Is there a general logo for Cursillo?

Q.

Dear Cursilistar (sic) in Christ, Is there a general logo for Cursillo Movement and what does it mean by its symbols? What is your logo explains?(sic) Thank you. Dayantha Tissera

A.

No, there is no general logo for the Cursillo Movement. The founders saw no need for a special logo because, to their mind, Cursillo was nothing more and nothing less than a way to become better Christians. In this line of thought, the symbol of the cross of Christ, or the fish (ICTHUS:Jesus Christ Son of God and Saviour) used by the first Christians, or the easter candle, etc. were already there as appropriate symbols. There has never been any set rule about a universal logo for the CM.

Nevertheless, as the Cursillo Movement spread around the world, many National Secretariats and International Groups have adopted distinctive emblems and motos illustrating either what is fundamental to be a Christian or an aspect of it like: the joy ("decolores") of sharing Christ Life or the importance of its universal mission, etc. For example:

The logo of the Francophone Cursillo Movement of Canada is an invitation to be "light of the world" and a reminder to stay close to Christ in order to continue His mission.
