Before Breath The Eternal Origin of the Person of the Holy Spirit This Life Night begins with a relay race that incorporates different symbols of the Holy Spirit. The Proclaim expounds on the symbols of the Holy Spirit, but challenges the teens to not limit the Holy Spirit to a specific image, but to see Him as a person. During the Break, the teens consider the symbols of the Holy Spirit and discuss ways to develop a relationship with the person of the Holy Spirit. The Send gives a confirmed teen the opportunity to share his or her experience of living out the grace of the Sacrament of Confirmation and also introduces the teens to the ancient hymn, Come, O Creator Spirit Blest. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to understand the Holy Spirit as a person of the Trinity, Who has been active since the beginning, and to foster a desire to have a relationship with the Holy Spirit.
