Week of April 3rd, 2017
For young people, that they might know how to respond generously to the vocation God has given them, and immerse themselves in the great causes of the world.
Pope Francis - April 2017
- I know that you, young people, don’t want to be duped by a false freedom, always at the beck and call of momentary fashions and fads. I know that you aim high. Is that true, or am I wrong?
- Don’t leave it to others to be the protagonists of change.
- You, young people, are the ones who hold the future! I ask you to be builders of the world, to work for a better world. It is a challenge, yes it is a challenge. Do you accept it?
- Pray with me that young people may respond generously to their own vocation and mobilize for the great causes of the world.

PALM SUNDAY - APRIL 9TH, 2017
Explore It! The Gospel of today revolves around The Passion of Christ. Beginning with the Last Supper, where Jesus establishes our source and summit of life, the Passion recollects the events through the arrest and betrayals of Jesus, the Stations of the Cross, and finally concluding the death of Christ to save us from our sins.
Connect It! Everyone says they are loyal, to their family, friends, significant other, etc al. Some might go as far to announce on Facebook they would die for them; why is it then we hear stories of betrayal and back-turning? Peter denied Christ three times, and Judas sold Christ for monetary gain. Similarly, we see that even the people who appear the most devoted have the possibility to turn their backs. Christ went alone through the Passion and concluded with dying for our sins.
Reflect It! A question to consider is if betrayal requires conscious thought of it. Did Peter deny Christ out of fear and survival, or did he explicitly think to betray Christ? What about Judas? Did his desires get the best of him, or did he decide the best way to betray Christ was to sell Him out? This leads to ask: is willpower, and sufficient willpower, required to fully live the idea of loyalty out? Does the way we live follow with our words of loyalty and servitude to Him? Why are we in TNTT? Are you here for a greater purpose, or for yourself?
Live It! This week, give yourself a quick reflection of your role in TNTT. Answer the three questions about yourself: what qualities do you have that fit the profile of a TNTT member? What are successes you can note to celebrate? What are some opportunities for improvement in your roles that can help you serve better? Have you been 100% committed to your responsibilities in TNTT this year?
- Remember It! "Amen, I say to you, one of you will betray me." (Matthew 26:21)
