Details. Always the details.

I've been up to my eyeballs with details. I'm not complaining, mind you, because whenever one embarks upon some major undertaking, there are bound to be countless details which need attention. The greater the undertaking, the more details requiring attention.

The undertaking of which I speak is a Women's Cursillo weekend beginning on Thursday evening. "Cursillo de Cristiandad" means essentially a "short course" in Christian living. The participants are imbued with a better understanding of their role as the Laity, and, along with the realization that a dramatic change must be made in this world, the tools to change their little corner of it for the better. This change is what results through the dilligent practice of a method of piety, study and action, which we teach in-depth during the three days.

For the last three months, a group of us have gathered to prepare talks, plan liturgies, learn music, brainstorm lists of essentials, shop for essentials, coordinate schedules, and pray, pray, pray, pray, PRAY!

(I bet you can't guess what the most important element is when preparing a three-day retreat weekend.)

As I finish preparing the details for my big weekend, I ask all of you out there reading this to pray for us as we try to change our little corner of the world for the better.
