Excerpt from Fully Alive, the bulletin for the Catholic Cursillos of Canada., Vol. 10, Issue 2, pg 32
To avoid the vital and essential character of the Ultreyas turning into mere fireworks, into a show rather than the safe haven it should be, it is essential that it be supported and strengthened by a School or Group of Leaders.
Probably due to a certain desire for "elitism", there is a tendency to consider the Cursillo's School of Leaders' as an arrival point rather than as a runway from which to take-off. But the fact is that the Schools must be wide open to all those who wish to participate in the environment of Cursillo and who are already a living part of an Ultreya-- and therefore of a Group Reunion. It is unthinkable that a Leader in the Cursillo Movement should not be living the Ultreya and a Group Reunion.
The most important thing to bear in mind is that the first and essential role of the School for Leaders is to support the Ultreyas in their area. And after, in a quite secondary way, to train people who will eventually go to a Cursillo as a leader (team member)…, or to organize the spiritual service (prayers) that every Cursillo demands, or also, to facilitate the relations of our Movement, at any place and time, with the Cursillo Movement in other places...
We would add one last purpose, which is that the Schools for Leaders should be nuclei of reflection on what the Cursillos actually are and what they could be, in every specific case.
All Cursillistas are invited to join the School of Leaders (SOL).
