But…Why? The Sacrament of the Eucharist About this Life Night This Life Night begins with a game revolving around the question, “Why?” After teenagers play several rounds of the game, the Life Night moves into the Proclaim, which includes a challenging teaching on the Eucharist and a testimony from a teenager. During the Break, teens have the opportunity to journal with several Bible passages and reflect on their attitude toward the Eucharist. The Life Night closes with a time of prayer in Eucharistic Adoration. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to provide teens a deeper understanding of the gift that Jesus Christ gave to us in the Eucharist. The Life Night challenges teenagers to reflect on this incredible gift and center their lives around the sacrament.

When consecrated by the priest, by the Holy Spirit, the Eucharist is truly the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ. The Eucharist unifies us with Christ and the Church, brings forgiveness from venial sin, provides us with the grace to avoid grave sins, and commits us to service of the poor. It is not simply a ritual, but an act of love. We can worship Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament through Eucharistic Adoration. This prayer increases our love of Christ and our desire to receive Him in the Eucharist at Mass. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
