School of Leaders

"As an operational structure of the Movement, the School is a community of Christians who, united in the atmosphere of a Group Reunion, seek everyday to be more centered, more committed and more united, so as to accelerate in themselves, in the Movement, and in their environments the living out of what is fundamental for being a Christian." Leaders' Manual (9th Edition, 2006) pg. 147, quoting from Fundamental Ideas, #540

Leader's Prayer

    Lord, grant that we may understand the necessity for depth in our movement, rather than surface glory. Convince us of the truth that colorful programs do not constitute success.
    My God, give us a spirit of self sacrifice so that we may offer everything for your cause: our time, our abilities, our health, and even our lives if necessary. Instill in us courage in our initiatives, good judgment in our choice of the right means, and that determination which in spite of failures assures victory.
  Move away from us the tiny rivalries, sensitivities, discourtesies, pride everything which distracts from You, everything which divides or discourages.
    Help us to maintain at a high level a meaningful, supernatural, and mutual charity among ourselves, so that each one will seek by preference the most humble tasks and rejoice at the good performed by others, so that all our spirits united in a common purpose will have one single spirit, Yours Jesus, and that this spirit may let us see Your attractive goodness marked in our faces, Your warm accents in all our words, and in our lives something superior to the world, something that proclaims Your Living Presence among us.    Amen.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patron of the Americas, pray for us.
St. Paul, Patron of Cursillo, pray for us. Leaders' Manual (9th Edition, 2006) pg. 65
