Emojis An Edge Issue Night on Emotions About this Social Night This Edge Night begins with a Gather game where the youth use emojis to show what they would feel and how they would react to certain situations. The Proclaim explains what emotions are, what role they play in our decision making, and ultimately, what the youth can do to prevent their lives from being driven by their emotions. The Break examines the different emotions that Jesus experienced and the Send shares the life of St. Pio of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio), specifically his famous saying, “pray, hope, and don’t worry,” with the youth. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to help the youth better understand their emotions and what role emotions play in their day-to-day life. Catechism # 1762 - 1775 Scripture John 5:10 -11 John 11:33 -35 Mark 6:31 Key Concepts Emotions help us act or not act based on what we are experiencing. They also help us identify if something is good or evil. As human beings, we are fundamentally drawn toward what is good; we are drawn toward the greatest good — love. That is why we like it when we are happy and do not like it when we are sad or fearful. (CCC 1763-1765) Emotional changes are a result of various factors. We react to different situations based on how things make us feel. All of our actions, despite our emotions, should be ordered toward doing what is right and good. Through our reason and will, and by not allowing ourselves to be ruled by our emotions, we can use self-control to choose what is best for ourselves and those around us.
