it again and make notes. You might like to discuss these points

journey through the whole series for your future review of your progress in life.
Discussion Reflections and Questions
what ways can tolerance -- in this context, ignoring the poor moral
choices, sinful tendencies or spiritual apathy of a friend -- be
dishonest? How does the standing up for the truth require
courage? We hear a lot about mercy, but is it merciful to see a
brother living a sinful life, and ignore it?
what ways do the Apostles provide a model for a “band of brothers”
today? They were all very different, yet formed a bond that
changed the world, even though one of them betrayed the Lord. They went
through the ultimate challenge – seeing their leader tortured and
killed. Eventually, this fate they would all face. How
should we as Catholic men bond today? How should we have the
strength and faith to carry on with the same mission?
