We had a fabulous meeting this morning, thank you to all of you that showed up. Our topic of discussion was “Talents,” it was presented by Alex. Talent was defined as “a natural skill that is given to man to show that they are special.” We were informed that all of us (yes…no exceptions) have a talent. Small tiny little qualities of making people laugh, or convincing friends are talents. Talents come as a natural gift, from hard work, doing things you love, and from being yourself. Ultimately they come from God.
So, what is your TALENT(S) ? how are you using them ?
Kudos to Alex for an astounding presentation.
Everyone is born with some special talent…
Thank you to all of you that attended today’s meeting. The topic of discussion was “Technology: Its evolution and Future,” our presenter was Johnny. Below were some of the discussion questions
1. So what holds for technology in the Future?
2. How are we improving technology ?
3. How do you think technology has improved?
Thank you Johnny for a well prepared, engaging, and creative presentation. We had a special guest in Mar, an Idente Missionary from Spain at our meeting. She spoke briefly about IY in Spain.
Last Wednesday our Idente Youth teens in the Bronx discussed the benefits of studying. While sometimes we feel that studying in school is difficult and tiring, we later tend to see how important it was to study. We begin to see that studying improves our knowledge, our personality and even our faith. The teens learned that we have to give our best when we study and this means that we avoid wasting our time. Many things can distract us, so we have to ask God to help us stay focused. Hope you can join us for our next teens' meeting this Wednesday at 6:00pm at St. Dominic's Church.

Thank you to all that made it to today’s IY meeting. The topic of discussion was “Dreams.” I hope we all understood through the presentation the importance of dreams and dreaming. Below is the message from Pope Francis’s address to the Cuban students on “dreaming,” which we read at the meeting.
You are standing up and I am sitting. How rude! But you know why I am sitting; it is because I was taking notes on some of the things which our companion here was saying. Those are the things I want to talk about.
One really striking word he used was “dream”. A Latin American writer once said that we all have two eyes: one of flesh and another of glass. With the eye of flesh, we see what is in front of us. With the eye of glass, we see what we dream of. Beautiful, isn’t it?
In the daily reality of life, there has to be room for dreaming. A young person incapable of dreaming is cut off, self-enclosed. Everyone sometimes dreams of things which are never going to happen. But dream them anyway, desire them, seek new horizons, be open to great things. I’m not sure if you use this word in Cuba, but in Argentina we say: “Don’t be a pushover!” Don’t bend or yield; open up. Open up and dream! Dream that with you the world can be different. Dream that if you give your best, you are going to help make this world a different place. Don’t forget to dream! If you get carried away and dream too much, life will cut you short. It makes no difference; dream anyway, and share your dreams. Talk about the great things you wish for, because the greater your ability to dream, the farther you will have gone; even if life cuts you short half way, you will still have gone a great distance. So, first of all, dream!

We take this opportunity to welcome our newcomers Fernando & Griselda to IY
Our next weekly meeting is at 10am Sat, 28-May at Our Lady of Loretto Church.
Last Wednesday, our Idente Youth teens were reminded that God, our Father, created each of us with a purpose in life, just as a worker or an artist creates with a purpose. We realized that our purpose in life is to first love God and the people around us. In small groups, we shared examples of how we're living according to our purpose as well as the times that we have fallen short of living our purpose. Our sharing was filled with joy as we encouraged one another to live for our Heavenly Father. We hope you can join us for our next teens' meeting this Wednesday at 6:00pm at St. Dominic's Church. For more information, please call us at (347) 948-3122 or check out our website: www.identeyouth.us. Thanks! (4/13/2016)
This week, our Idente youth teens watched the Documentary called “Poet of God,” a documentary on the life of Dr. Fernando Rielo, founder of Idente youth, to remember him on the 11th memorial anniversary of his passing into eternal life. It was an amazing experience for the teens as they understood the founder’s sacrificial life, love and desire to transmit the Heavenly Father's love to young people. The documentary also showed the teens the founder’s perseverance to build a better society. He persevered from his young age till his death amidst many pains and persecutions.
our Idente youth Kids had a wonderful time watching puppet shows, through which they were learning to love and to respect one another. After watching it they all had prepared themselves to make their own puppets with a story. The stories to which they gave life were so inspiring and was filled with the desire of living values by sharing and loving with one another. Thanks to all the kids who came forward to share their wish.
Idente Youth members in the Bronx met on Thursday (in Morris Park) and Friday (in Zerega) to discuss the best way to deal with worries and the future. After coming up with a long list of worries that people experience, they concluded that while thinking of the future, we must give the best of ourselves, in the present, to the people around us (who also have worries). Below are group photos from our two meetings:
Our next two meetings in the Bronx will be Thursday, August 13 at St. Dominic's Rectory and
Friday, August 14 at Santa Maria Parish Hall
