Since this talk is entitled Role of the Cursillo Leader, I imagine the best place to begin would be by asking ourselves who is a Leader in Cursillo? You might say that all those who are members of your Secretariat are the Cursillo Leaders. Or maybe you might say all those who attend the School of Leaders are Cursillo Leaders. You would not be wrong in either case, but you would not be completely correct either. What if I made a slight change to this phrase “Make a friend, be a friend, and bring that friend to Christ”. What if instead I said “Make a friend, be a friend, and lead that friend to Christ”? Would you then recognize that all Cursillistas are Cursillo Leaders, because all of us have experienced the three fundamental encounters of a weekend and all of us know that this is what we are called to do? We are called to lead others to Christ.
