FAQ - Question 3

Is there something after the Week-end?

This is an important question. If the ultimate goal is for Christians to become living proof of God’s love and catalysts for societal change, it is evident that this cannot happen in 3 days. The Cursillo weekend represents the first, essential step along the way. The key is what happens after the weekend during the postcursillo period known as
the 4th day.

During the 3 days of the Cursillo, the cursillistas discover that the essence of our faith and our lives is contained in the light of God that shines in our hearts.

They leave the cursillo with the desire to live their lives illuminated by this light and to transform this light into a beacon of love which will consume their entire lives and will light the way to God for othersJésus appelle à le suivre

But we do not live our lives in an unending Cursillo weekend. We live our lives one day at a time and every day we must renew our acceptance of Christ’s invitation to "Come and see the goodness of God". It is only then that we can confidently respond to His command "Go out to the whole world; proclaim the Good News".

The CM recognizes that the revelations and the enthusiasm of the weekend need to be nurtured and deepened so that the individual and the community gain maximum benefit. It is for these reasons that the CM proposes two types of regular meetings: the Group Reunion and the Ultreya.
