The Early History of U.S. Cursillos de Cristiandad

(p.56) Chapter Two Coming to America
The Cursillo Movement in America

This chapter talks about Carlos Calatayud Maldonado, who made his Cursillo in Ciudad Real in 1956, at the cusp of the Cursillo weekends' worldwide expansion. Despite Bishop Jesús Enciso Viana's 1956 pastoral letter that sent Bonnín into exile and forced the three-day Cursillos and group reunions to operate clandestinely, what were now known as Cursillos de Cristiandad, the Hervás-renamed “Cursillos for Pilgrim Leaders,” supported by both Hervás and Bonnín, began to spread around the globe. Mallorquín and other Spanish cursillistas who knew Bonnín and Hervás introduced the weekend course in spirituality abroad. From 1956 until Enciso's death in 1964, one kind of Cursillo weekend was officially offered—the more ecclesial Hervás weekend. After Enciso's death, Hervás-influenced CdC weekends became even more prominent, and he was credited with being the founder of the weekend Cursillo.
