Think about this:
It takes some courage to do this, but it can lead you on a pathway where things happen that you would not expect. Why not step out and try it!
Every morning before you get out of bed, say to God.
“HERE I AM LORD. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH ME TODAY?”
To our dear brothers and sisters in Christ, We have just completed the 50th year of the Cursillo Movement’s history in Australia and the Sydney area; the first English speaking Cursillo in Australia was held at Armidale in 1965, followed soon after with another one in Sydney in October of that year. Having passed this milestone we should pause to thank the Lord for the richness of His blessings over this period. Surely the choicest of these blessings has been manifested in the people who He has called to take an active role in our Movement. Not least amongst those who have given great service and dedication to the Secretariat over a long period. In thanking them for their dedication we are also asking you to remember them in your prayers./p>
In an address to the leadership of the Episcopal Conferences of Latin America in 2013, Pope Francis posed this question to clergy; “Are we conscious and convinced of the mission of the lay faithful and do we give them the freedom to continue discerning, in a way befitting their growth as disciples, the mission which the Lord has entrusted to them.” This was, and continues to be, a challenge to clergy. But, I believe he was also laying down a challenge to us as lay people – a challenge to us as church in the world, to the world – to mission to those around us, to those in our world.
