What is 3GTM?



In 2012, the blockbuster film Titanic was re-released in 3D. Wikipedia defines 3D film as “a motion picture that enhances the illusion of depth perception.” We suggest that the 1997 film version does little to enhance the perception of depth in the characters on the screen. We hope the current generation of young men and women will recognize that the true legacy of the R.M.S. Titanic is not about special effects, but about heroism and self sacrifice. The heroes of the R.M.S. Titanic had real depth and their sacrifice was not an illusion.


Accordingly, we invite today's young people to take the motto of the sea to heart by using the 3G slogan as an easy reminder of the true legacy of the R.M.S. Titanic. 3GTM is shorthand for Give! Give! Give! The longer version reads thus:


~GIVE what you have.~

~GIVE more than you take.~

~GIVE it your all.~TM


Fr. Thomas Byles, who sacrificed his life to comfort and pray with the passengers on the R.M.S. Titanic. He was a shining example of the 3G Principles.
