Cursillo en Español
Los Cursillos de Cristiandad son un Movimiento que mediante un método propio, intentan (y con la gracia de Dios consigue) desde la Iglesia, que las realidades de lo cristiano se hagan vida en la singularidad, en la originalidad y en la creatividad de cada persona, para que, descubriendo sus potencialidades y aceptando sus limitaciones, conduzca su libertad desde su convicción, refuerce su voluntad con su decisión y propicie la amistad en virtud de su constancia en su cotidiano vivir individual y comunitario.
