Flamethrower An Edge Night on the Communion of Saints About this Night During the Gather, the youth learn more about the life of St. John Paul II and play a ball game where saints help them pass the ball to other players. The Proclaim explores how, just as flamethrowers harness the power of fire, other members of the Church — particularly the saints — can help us embrace the power of the Holy Spirit. In the Break, the youth create saint devotional candles which are then lit in the Send as they pray for the intercession of the saints. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to help the youth better understand and connect with the whole communion of the members of the Church including those on Earth, those in purgatory, and the saints in heaven. Catechism # 946 - 956 # 1031 - 1032 # 2683 - 2689 Scripture Romans 12:3 -8 1 Corinthians 12:12 -13 Hebrews 12:1 -2 Key Concepts • The Holy Spirit always wants good things for us, but sometimes those things seem intimidating and we need help from others who know how to follow the Spirit. • We cannot live our faith alone; the communion of saints and the Church exist so we can support one another spiritually and practically. • The communion of saints is made up of those on Earth, in purgatory, and in heaven. The saints are united to the Holy Spirit in heaven and are one of our best resources when we need help understanding and following God. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Edge Night!
