Reflections II – In Search of Oneself

Reflections

Reflections II – In Search of Oneself, Eduardo Bonnin Aguiló. Eduardo Bonnin drew up a lot of index cards for personal use, which he used as a guide when he had to prepare and address an audience. Some of these cards contained a single thought or idea, but others are real outlines, some more complicated than others and difficult to interpret for any person other than Eduardo himself. Since an important part of his thinking was set out in those index cards, it was thought that they could be rewritten in a version accessible to everyone. In this way, his thinking could be reproduced accurately and faithfully, though his unique and very personal form of expression would inevitably be, at least partly, lost. This task was carried out by Guillermo Bibiloni (the author of History of Cursillo, and a good connoisseur of Eduardo) while Eduardo was still alive. A number of years ago, when Eduardo was still alive – a little book written by Eduardo was published under the same title Reflections and thus this book is entitled Reflections II.

Cursillo History and Memory

 

Cursillo History & Memory depicts one of the most unique and yet most unknown events in our recent history: The development of the Cursillo in Christianity Movement. Francisco Forteza’s book, avoids both the “apologetic tone” and the “cold historicism”; it can be classed as testimonial literature. It openly reveals the human condition, not exempt from errors, intrigues and manipulations that have occurred in the Cursillo Movement, while claiming at the same time the validity of what, in the author’s language is understood as “The Foundational Charism”.
In these pages the author, Francisco Forteza Pujol, explores and reveals the early days of the Movement from his personal experience and study. Despite obstacles and difficulties from some surprising quarters it has steadily grown and is now a reality in all the inhabited continents of the world. Those who read this book carefully will gain a new and deeper insight to all that is Cursillo.

FranciscoFortezaPujol, (Felanitx. 1942- Madrid, 1995). A Lawyer and a Company Managing Director. From his adolescence he was one of the protagonists of Cursillo, in Mallorca –the island where Cursillo was born–, in Madrid, and elsewhere. He is one of the lay theorists of this Movement, and as such he has signed, along with Eduardo Bonnin –the lay author of Cursillo– various publications, such as Structure of  Ideas; Cursillo: A Reality Not Yet Realized; (The Manifesto)  and Forgotten Evidence.

Manifesto

Written in 1981 by Eduardo Bonnín and Francisco Forteza, its purpose was to try to clarify the origins of the Cursillo Movement, and to explain some of the early thinking. It gives a clear explanation of the content of the Study of the Environment Rollo, which, according to Eduardo Bonnín, contains the essence of the method and mentality of the Cursillo Movement.

Eduardo Bonnin An Apprentice Christian

Have you ever wondered how Cursillos in Christianity came about, and what its original purpose was and still is? The answer to that question is deeply intertwined in the life and thought of Eduardo Bonnín, upon whom the Holy Spirit deposited the charism of Cursillo, and his small band of companions who, in Mallorca, Spain of the 1940s, developed a method and a movement “that has been able to express the Gospel in modern terms and revitalize the lives of nearly ten million people throughout the world; in some countries up to two generations.

The purpose of this book is to help us better understand Cursillo and its foundational charism by better knowing its founder, since there is close relationship between Cursillo and the life of its main architect. In this work, Eduardo Suárez del Real Aguilera, a Mexican journalist now living on Mallorca, uses the biographical interview to convey Eduardo’s life story, preserving his linguistic preferences so that his very language reveals personality traits, as well as his life history, which enriches his story with points of view from Eduardo’s band of brothers.

As you read this book, you will get to know Eduardo on a personal basis, sharing his excitement about Christ, his commitment to Cursillo and the Church, and the joy and frustration he has faced shepherding the movement through six decades.
