The Cursillo® Movement pursues two purposes or objectives. The immediate purpose is to provide a conduit for living what is fundamental for being a Christian, namely, the on-going and total conversion of the person. The end purpose is to vertebrae Christianity in society by means of these persons who live what is fundamental for being Christian (the love of God and neighbor) in their daily lives.
Simply explained, the purpose of the Cursillo® Movement is that we become the Good News, and that our actions naturally turn out to be evangelical in our daily lives.
