“I continually give thanks to God for you...

Our Lay Directors

Ark Lay Director’s Article

Friends, We pray that you all had a blessed Thanksgiving Day with family and/or friends. Sharing what God has given to you. We are so blessed to have you as friends and family in this Cursillo Movement. It is such a joy to be able to come together and share on the weekends or Saturday at Holy Hour & Serenade, Closings, Focus days, Reunion Ultreya, School of Leaders, Picnic, Grouping or….whenever we can get together. I echo what St Paul said, “I continually give thanks to God for you...”. So many times I see you, yes you, step up and do what is needed! God sees you too! May He shower you with many abundant blessings! It takes many to keep this movement going. With so many wonderful ideas and thoughts. I see God continuing to bless us as we continue to strive to follow Him. We work so good together bringing in new people, new friends to meet our friend Jesus. Let’s continue that path and strive to bring many more to Christ. Make a friend, be a friend, bring a friend to Christ.

And then we turn the corner and Advent and Christmas are here! Time seems to fly by. And what a precious gift God has given us; Jesus! O come O come Emanuel! Let us ready our hearts and souls this Advent by doing what God calls each of us individually and as a family to do; listen to His calling. Then following what He asks of us. May each one of us step out of our comfort zones and step to the beat of Christ’s drum. Let us really listen to Him and try to hear what He asks of us. The world can be so noisy! Take time to quiet ourselves daily, whether in a chapel or a space at home, and listen to the still quiet whisper of God. You won’t be sorry. Come Lord Jesus Come!! Fill our hearts with your love to overflowing that we may bring more souls to you! May it be with living our daily lives that others will see our love for You. May we be a light for others to see, dispelling the darkness of the world we live in and bring Joy to the World. Hark the Herald Angels Sing Glory to the New Born King!!!

Yours in Christ
