My Neighbor An Edge Night on Social Justice The Edge Night begins with a Gather activity that gets the youth thinking about our similarities and differences. The Proclaim teaches the youth the basic concepts of social justice, human dignity, and the importance of solidarity. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to take a look at different ways they can help people in need and explore what it means to be a modern day Good Samaritan. During the Send the youth have an opportunity to pray for people in need and think about how they can make positive changes in the lives of those people. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is for the youth to come to a greater understanding of the dignity of the human person and what it means to be in solidarity for others and to uphold social justice. Catechism # 1928 - 1938 # 1940 - 1942 Scripture Luke 10:25 -37 Luke 12:48 Matthew 25:37 -40 Key Concepts – Society at large is responsible for upholding the rights and dignity of humankind. It should ensure and provide conditions for the human person to live his or her life in accord with his or her dignity and vocation. This is a part of what we call “social justice” which ensures that the common good is upheld by the proper exercise of authority. (CCC 1928) – The problems in society that leave people on the fringes or without enough to survive can only be solved through solidarity between all people from all walks of life. (CCC 1941) – As baptized Christians, we are all a part of God’s family, and, therefore, we are brothers and sisters in Christ. Since we are all brothers and sisters, Jesus calls us to love one another, encourage one another, and build one another up. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Edge Night!
