Cursillo of the Diocese of Owensboro



"... We must reaffirm, before anything else, within the characteristic of the Cursillo methodology, the importance which has always been given to its characteristic mark, to the 'spiritual management' or 'Palanca' (prayers, sacrifices, and acts of mercy). ..."  -- Leaders' Manual (9th Edition, 2006) pg. 147, quoting from Fundamental Ideas, #180

The local Secretariat invites our 4th Day Community to join them in offering prayer and Palanca for these specific daily intentions of the Cursillo Movement:

Monday -- National, Regional, and Diocesan Secretariats
Tuesday -- Schools of Leaders
Wednesday -- Cursillistas in the U.S.
Thursday -- National Cursillo Movement's Apostolic Actions
Friday -- Cursillo Weekends
Saturday -- OMCC (International Cursillo) Executive Committee

The 4th Day is also encouraged to consider competent spiritual direction as an aid to developing a personal Catholic spirituality.

To share Palanca with or request Palanca from Cursillo of the Diocese of Owensboro:

The National Cursillo Center's Palanca Requests can be submitted through and reviewed at:

The Corporal Works of Mercy: Feed the hungry; Give drink to the thirsty; Shelter the homeless; Clothe the naked; Visit the sick; Visit the prisoners;
Bury the dead; Give alms to the poor

The Spiritual Works of Mercy: Counseling the doubtful; Instructing the ignorant; Admonishing the sinner; Comforting the sorrowful; Forgiving injuries; Bearing wrongs patiently; Praying for the living and the dead

St. Ignatius of Loyola's Abandonment Prayer: Take Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will. All I have and call my own. You have given all to me. To You, Lord, I return it. Everything is Yours; Do with it what You will. Give me only Your love and Your grace; that is enough for me. Amen.
