Abundant Sacrifice A Life Night on Saint John Paul II and the Priesthood About This Life Night This Life Night begins with a game called Reverse Charades that shows St. John Paul II’s love for acting and adventure. There is a combined Proclaim and Break that discusses and offers time for a journal reflection on the priestly ministry. The Send introduces the Angelus, a favorite prayer of St. John Paul II recited at the Wednesday Papal Audiences, which reflects on Mary’s “yes” and the mystery of the Incarnation. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is for teens to understand that a vocation to the priesthood is a call to live one’s life as a gift of self for the salvation of others, as exemplified by the life of St. John Paul II. Catechism # 1268 # 1535 # 1546 Scripture Luke 1:30 1 Peter 2:9 Key Concepts – The vocation to the priesthood is a unique calling to offer oneself as a gift for the salvation of all of God’s people. – Saint John Paul II is an incredible witness of what it means to authentically live out a calling to the priesthood through pouring oneself out for the salvation of all souls. – Although we are not all called to the priesthood, each of us is called to the common priesthood. Through our sacrifices, our gift of self to those around us, and our spreading of the Good News, we share in the priesthood of Christ.
