Piety, Study and Action
- Have I maintained my commitments in my Rule of Life?
- With what other spiritual aids have I nourished my union with Christ?
- What moment did I feel closest to Christ?
- What have I studied that has increased my understanding of my relationship with God?
- Apostolic Successes and disappointments—in my family, in my work, in my environment
- How did my previous plans work out?
- News of the Christian community?
- What are my plans for the coming week?
- Thanksgivings and intercessions.
The weekly gathering to ask the questions above is a discipline strongly suggested for those who have attended Cursillo as a way of holding yourself accountable for keeping your commitments in the faith.
Knowing you have to sit down with others and answer for how you have been reading the Bible and praying, studying in the faith, and taking action based on your faith, is a great way to encourage faithfulness within yourself and the people with whom you meet. Just asking yourself about each week of your life, "What moment did I feel closest to Christ?" is highly revealing.
I encourage you to find a group that can hold itself mutually accountable for acting on your faith. Most churches have an opportunity for this through any one of the many groups that meet there. If you are at King of Peace, we can find room for you in one of the several Cursillo Reunion Groups whether you have attended Cursillo or not, and if you attend King of Peace and are interested in an upcoming Cursillo retreat, please speak to me in person.
