Fifty years ago, neither "Cursillos de Cristiandad" nor the then "Instituto Secular de Derecho Pontificio del Opus Dei" were the same as we know them today.

As an ex member of both organizations, first Cursillos, then Opus Dei, I know fairly well that they were not associated in any meaningful way.

Thanks for your personal testimony, but the written correspondence between the parties themselves and their own testimony shows that the founders of both organizations were closely associated both personally and ideologically.
