Cursillo Founder Dies at 90

From Zenit:

Eduardo Bonnin, founder of the Catholic lay Cursillo movement, died Wednesday at age 90.

A note on the movement’s Web site asked for prayers for the founder, who was born May 4, 1917.

“Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I send this message with a heart full of Christ’s mercy and joy, to inform you of the passing to eternal life of our beloved friend, Eduardo Bonnin, founder of the Cursillos of Christianity, Feb. 6, 2008, in Mallorca,” Victor Lugo, national executive director, wrote on the site.

The national secretariat of the movement in Spain, in a notice on its Web site, stated that “with his death, one of the pioneers of the work of the Cursillos of Christianity, is lost. It was in this parcel of the Church where the Lord planted him and to this place, he gave his effort, his dreams, his time and all of his life.”
