Filled First Receiving Mercy About this Life Night The Life Night begins with a Gather game, Q-Tip Pick Up. The Proclaim introduces the need for us to seek and receive mercy just as much as we seek to give it. The Break gives the teens a chance to share their experience of completing a work of mercy as well as challenges them to explore receiving the works of mercy. The Send explores the significance and grace of the Divine Mercy image. The teens complete a Divine Mercy Image Journal Reflection. Goal of This Night The goal of Filled First is to learn how to receive the works of mercy in our own lives. Catechism # 1829 # 2447 Scripture Matthew 5:7 Luke 7:47 Hebrews 4:16 Titus 3:4 -5 Key Concepts • All of us have had moments when we’ve found ourselves in need of mercy. Desiring and receiving mercy is just as important as being merciful. • While we desire mercy, it may not be easy to receive. We often reject mercy from God and from others because of various impediments like pride, doubt, and shame. • Both giving and receiving the works of mercy bring about the presence of God. When we show mercy to others, people are cared for, physically and spiritually, and God’s presence is made known to them. When we receive mercy we are cared for and God’s presence is made known to us. Key Terms Impediment Pride Doubt Faith End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
