MADE FOR MORE
LIFE NIGHT - January 15, 2012
The goal of this LIfe Night is for our teens to recognize God's divine image in every human person and identify ways to honor this dignity in themselves and others each day.
During this Life Night, we will discuss the human dignity of all human persons. We will help you youth understand that he/she is made in the image and likeness of God - not because of anything he/she can do or owns, but because God created him/her. This is the basis for all Catholic Social Teaching. The teens will be challenged to see ways in which they are called to honor the dignity of everyone they encounter each day. At the end of the night, we will pray a decade of the rosary lifting up those who are often seen as "the least" and who we know are in need of our prayers.
Some ideas for discussion with your teen could be:
What does it mean that every human person has dignity?
What are ways that we can honor the dignity of others?
How does Jesus' life serve as an example and inspire us to live up to our full potential?
