Hello Everyone! Where do I begin?
This weekend was certainly a life changing, eye opening and Holy Spirit Filled even for me! I must say that saying YES to the Cursillo weekend was one of the best choices I have ever made. Because of this, I have been filled with fire from the Holy Spirit and have added to my family. I have created bonds through the Holy Spirit and have been called into further action in spreading the message of our Savior.
Many of you may have heard about the Cursillo but may be puzzled at not finding out very much information about it. That is a great thing! Often times, when reading reviews about certain topics we form opinions immediately on them. Whether they are good or bad opinions, we are kind of in a way cemented by what they say. When we go into this weekend after reading the review of someone else, we expect that same exact thing to happen to us – it won’t. That is the thing, what someone else experiences, another person may not.
I was blessed to have been able to take part in a healing mass recently and it was such an amazing experience. When we went up to receive the Holy Spirit, to be healed of spiritual and physical ailments, we were each told something different. No two people were told the same thing because each person has their own mission, their own crosses that they are bearing. This is extremely similar to the Cursillo movement because two people are not going to experience the same thing. Each person who is open to receiving the Holy Spirit will receive it completely. Notice I used the word open. You have to be willing to allow the Holy Spirit into your heart, to speak to you.
I will not hold back the truth because I was anxious when I went as well. I had no idea what to expect, and not knowing is one of the most anxious things. I am one of those people who love to be prepared for everything I do and I have to have a schedule, know about it and be prepared! That is the beauty of this weekend because it is already prepared for those who were in the same position as you before. The people who run it are those who are one time were anxious to fully say yes to the Holy Spirit but they did. They are there to aid you on your journey and that they did! I made some amazingly great friends who have already become family in such a short amount of time. I know that when I go out and evangelize to others, I will not be alone. I have others who will be doing the same thing and we can support each other.
All in all, it was a great and amazing experience; one that I will cherish for the rest of my life and that I will try and help spread the message about.
