Precious Sisters and Brothers,
Happy the month of June which carries with it the sense of beginnings as summer approaches and seeds are falling on fertile ground and now with extra delays because of the coronavirus a sense of getting started again. Very much in my mind is the celebration of family that happens with Mothers' Day in May and soon Fathers' Day this month because I have always felt that Cursillo is family too. We like to celebrate each other and share beautiful stories and memories; and in the Family of God that's known as evangelization which is what we're all about. We love to keep our family growing and eventually have everyone invited to join and tremendously happy to do so. One of the special signs of all this is the efforts we're making as Family of God (Church) and Cursillo to stay in touch while keeping safe and healthy. Zooming is a good example and I suspect there will be other connections that we'll come up with that may become significant elements in our continuing efforts at evangelization to the whole world. One of my little treasures is that I see the Holy Spirit very much at work in this covid-19 experience. We support and encourage one another to be open, safely together, enjoying one another's presence, companionship, gifts and talents. I'm enjoying the thought that because we are so open to inviting our friends to make weekends with us, this virus thing is going to make us even better at that, and it will turn out to be an actual blessing!!! Celebrating Tim Haney gives me the thought that his companionship and leadership have just transitioned from earth to heaven as a powerful move. John Lyons and Kathy Otermat will be blessed as they grow us with some extra help from heaven, and they'll enjoy it -- right along with us all, eh? I treasure the thought of co-operation! Let's make the most of who we are -- that people can't wait to join us!
