Dwelling Place The Paschal Sacrifice About this Life Night The Gather is a small group competition and discussion on items that signify what they contain. This leads into a Proclaim that explores the history of animal sacrifice for freedom from the oppression of sin, the Paschal sacrifice, and living in communion with the Paschal sacrifice. The Break is a small group discussion on the Proclaim. The Life Night concludes with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle and a reflection on becoming tabernacles of the Lord. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to understand Jesus as the Paschal sacrifice that we are in communion with in the Eucharist and, like Mary, become tabernacles of the Lord. Catechism # 608 - 614 # 1341 # 1363 - 1365 # 1391 Scripture Exodus 7:14 Leviticus 16: Matthew 26:26 -28 John 1:29 Key Concepts • God set His people free from their oppressor Pharaoh by prescribing a way for the spirit of death to pass over their homes – the blood of the sacrificial lamb sprinkled on wooden door posts. • Jesus, on the bloody, wooden cross, is the Paschal Lamb – the sacrifice that sets God’s people free from the oppression of sin. • Today, the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross is made present by celebrating the Mass in which Jesus gives Himself to us in the Eucharist. We, in turn, receive Him and, like Mary, become tabernacles of the Lord. Key Terms Paschal Lamb Last Supper Tabernacle Communion End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
