De Colores, Brothers and Sisters in Christ!
It is with a great deal of joy and anticipation I am writing to introduce myself in the usual Cursillo way as our community of Christ continues to grow every glorious weekend! This last weekend was truly a wonderful blessing for everyone, pilgrims and team alike, thank you Lord!
My name is Marta Meloy, I attend St. Anne of Grace in Seminole and made my Cursillo on weekend #49 at Dayspring in 1995, just a few years ago! Needless to say it was a life altering experience of unconditional love, with the perfect timing only God can give. Over the years I have returned to serve on weekends when called and continue to strive in fulfilling my Rule of Life, with God’s constant help! I am so grateful for these tools to guide, grow, support and account for my spiritual journey, for on my own it is definitely a struggle to abide in the presence of Jesus. What a difference Cursillo makes!
About a year ago the Secretariat asked me to prayerfully consider leading a weekend. After a time of discernment, I said yes, and the journey to Cursillo #144 began. I confess this is a very humbling experience learning patience and to wait upon the Lord’s revelation, yet at the same time, I am so incredibly excited over what the Lord has planned! I also feel relieved and deeply thankful He is in charge of it all, otherwise it would be overwhelming! He will make the weekend perfect in accordance to His will, far beyond what I can even imagine!
The theme is taken from Matthew 10:8 when Jesus sends out the disciples saying, “Freely you have received, freely give.” As I consider what I have received over my life from Christ, I am in awe of the abundance of blessings, faith, love, forgiveness, restoration, mercy and grace… now it is my time to freely give.
Cursillo #144 will be held February 20-23, 2020 and I know the Lord will bless the work of our hands as He calls us to serve on team, in sponsorship, prayer, giving palanca, or attending the Serenade and Clausura. Every offering and sacrifice magnifies the glory, honor and love of Christ Jesus.
Thank you for all of the prayer time and thoughtfulness given as you discern participation in the weekend. Should you have any questions, please contact me anytime. It will be wonderful to watch how the Lord leads us to unconditionally love and to build leaders in the Body of Christ on Cursillo # 144.
Love, peace and blessings in Christ,
