Veni Sancti Spiritus A Life Teen Issue Night for Life Teen's Annual Theme About this Life Night This Life Night introduces Life Teen’s annual theme for 2011: Veni Sancte Spiritus. This is the fifth year Life Teen has chosen an annual theme; each theme helps guide and direct the content of our events and resources throughout the year. It is our hope that these themes can also provide a framework for parish youth ministry programs as well. This year is all about the Holy Spirit. At Pentecost, God freely gave us His Spirit, and it is given to each person at Baptism. The Catechism describes the Holy Spirit as “the interior Master of Christian prayer” (CCC 2672). This Life Night will begin with icebreaker games involving Pig Latin. The talk will explain the Latin theme and what it means to call on the Holy Spirit for wisdom, guidance and courage. The Break for the night is a time of personal reflection and prayer. The Life Night ends with praying the simple, yet powerful prayer, “Come Holy Spirit,” and inviting the Holy Spirit to move in the lives of the teens. Goal of This Night Catechism # 683 - 701 # 731 - 741 # 2670 - 2672 Scripture John 14:25 -31 John 16:12 -15 Acts 2:1 -41 Romans 8:26 -27 1 Corinthians 12:1 -3 Key Concepts “Veni Sancte Spiritus” is Latin for “Come Holy Spirit.” This is Life Teen’s theme for 2011. We cannot earn the Holy Spirit; it is freely given in Baptism. Through the gift of God’s Spirit, God dwells within us. Although we have the Spirit, we recognize our complete need for God’s presence in our lives and, in this simple prayer, we ask God to unleash His power in our lives.
