Illumination A Life Night on God's Promise Throughout Scripture About This Life Night The Gather is an outlandish activity that gets teens to think about broken promises, which leads into a Proclaim that discusses God’s promises throughout salvation history and how they are fulfilled in Jesus and the Eucharistic covenant. In the Break, teens review specific covenants and discuss what God’s promise might look like for us today. In the Send, teens reflect on God’s promises in their own lives while adoring Him in the Eucharist. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to introduce teens to the Old Testament covenants, which reveal that God makes promises that He keeps and ultimately point us to God’s promise fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Catechism # 54 - 64 # 1334 - 1336 Scripture Genesis 2:15 -25 Genesis 2:1 -24 Genesis 9:1 -18 Genesis 15:1 -6 Exodus 20:1 -17 Exodus 24:1 -8 2 Samuel 7:1 -17 Matthew 26:17 -30 Key Concepts – In the Old Testament covenants, God repeatedly makes promises to humanity, which God keeps, even though humanity fails to be faithful. – We now live in a new and everlasting covenant with God, established by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper, and fulfilled in His Death and Resurrection, which we experience every time we go to Mass. – When we doubt God’s promise, we can open up Sacred Scripture to the stories of those who believed and whose promise was fulfilled, and we can return to the Eucharist to be present to God’s promise fulfilled to us today.
