Defeat For Humanity War About this Edge Night The night begins with a skit in darkness and silence and then transitions into the Proclaim. The youth will learn about the effects of war, the Church’s teaching on peace, and the conditions for just war. In their small groups, the youth will discuss fostering peace in their own lives because peace in the world begins with peace in our hearts. They will make a spiritual bouquet for American soldiers in their small groups as well. Finally, the Edge Night ends with a reflection on Blessed John Paul II, a witness to hope in a land ravaged by war, and prayer through his intercession. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to help the middle school youth understand the effects of war on a person and the need to be catalysts for peace in a world filled with violence. The middle school youth should develop a desire for peace above war both in the world and their own lives.
