De Colores—The song titled “De Colores!” was very popular at the time of the first Cursillo on the island of Mallorca (a beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea where spring is a real enchantment of colors). The song expresses the joy of living and exalts the beauties of creation. It was readily adopted by the first Cursillistas as a reflection of their inner feelings. Its popularity carried over from one Cursillo to another and it ended up becoming the theme song of the Movement, even though it was never officially recognized as such.
