Encountering Light Session Three: Casting Out Fear About this Night The Gather includes a fun video that demonstrates how the light of Christ reveals the truth. The Proclaim is a teaching that helps the youth see how Jesus can help them in the face of fear and suffering. During the Break, the youth reflect on different Scripture verses and share in small groups which one stood out to them and why. The Send closes the session with Eucharistic Adoration, during which the youth are able to tangibly lay down their fears at the feet of Christ. Goal of This Night The goal of this session is for the youth to see how they can invite Jesus Christ into any suffering they may be experiencing and that the light of Christ has the power to cast out all fear.

(1 John 4:18) • The truth about who Jesus is and the love He has for us can free us from our fears. • Jesus knows what it is like to suffer, which is why He invites us to unite our suffering with His so He can help us in our suffering and bring good out of even the worst situations — just like He did on the cross.
