Pope to Cursillo Movement: You grew without proselytism...this is a virtue

2015-04-30

With the beat of this emblematic song, Pope Francis walked into the Paul VI Hall to meet with members of the so called 'Cursillo Movement.' It was founded in Spain, but now it includes members from all of Europe. 

"We want His Holiness to count on us. We want him to count on our work, service and our commitment to evangelize. Above it all, we want him to count on our prayers. ¡De colores!”.

The group was originally scheduled to meet with the Pope on a different day. The Pope jokingly apologized. 

POPE FRANCIS
"The Pope also has faults. These shortcomings are not connected to infallibility. This Pope is a bit unorganized and undisciplined.” 

The Pope highlighted that the group, which was founded in the Spanish island of Mallorca, managed to grow in size and number without proselytizing. 

POPE FRANCIS
"You have not proselytized and this is a virtue. The Church does not grow through proselytism but rather through testimony.” 

Speaking about mercy, the Pope then posed some questions for the crowd, asking if they knew the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Let's be brave. If you don't know the answer, raise your hand! Look! Now you have homework, ok. Bishops. You have work to do.” 

The Pope then added that to grow in faith, one must first approach God. He then urged them to never tire of preaching through words and example, the Word of God.
