the solidarity of the members of the Church. It is especially important during
the Precursillo, the spiritual preparation for the Cursillo; therefore, both the
Team and the outside community should include a Palanca campaign.
Palanca is the actual prayers, sacrifices, and works of mercy. A note on a piece
of paper or a greeting card does not constitute Palanca. A Palanca letter is one

Palanca. The actual Palanca is the action – intercessory prayer, sacrifice, or
works of mercy – and it can be done without writing a letter. [Leaders’ Manual, p.
