Palanca is a Spanish word. It means "lever". A lever allows a person to move something beyond his/her capabilities. In the Cum Christo / Cursillo sense, Palanca is prayer and sacrifice on the part of one person, offered to God so that others may accomplish more than they would be capable of otherwise.
The essence of Palanca is sacrifice. Greeting cards, banners, computer generated spiffy graphics, candy, food, gifts and the like are not palanca. Those things may carry the message of palanca. In and of themselves, the vehicle is not palanca. The message, a message of prayer and sacrifice, is palanca.
