Behold An XLT on Eucharistic Adoration About This Night This Life Night is an XLT. Although, it will look and feel a bit different than a typical Life Night, it follows the same format of Gather, Proclaim, Break, and Send and has an extended Break with praise and worship and Eucharistic Adoration. The host is the master of ceremonies. He or she welcomes the attendees, breaks the ice, introduces the format, and begins in prayer. He or she is responsible for setting a prayerful tone and fostering openness to the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. The speaker gives the main talk. He or she is introduced by the host. The worship leader guides the congregation in praise and worship. He or she is aware of the community and leads them from a place of high praise into contemplative Eucharistic Adoration. The speaker and worship leader should use the same language to encourage participants to worship God. Transitions are important. Be sure to communicate with the host, speaker, worship leader, priest, and volunteers running the audio/visual elements. The Gather is a short period of upbeat praise and worship and a light hearted, uplifting welcome by the host. The Proclaim is a teaching that is strongly influenced by personal testimony and Scripture, and invites teens to acknowledge that God is and enter into genuine adoration of God. The Break is a period of extended praise and worship and Eucharistic Adoration guided by the worship leader. The Send summarizes the Life Night and challenges the teens to continue to take time to adore God in their everyday lives. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to guide teens in worship of God, simply because He is. Catechism # 1330 # 1378 # 2097 # 2628 Scripture Luke 22:14 -20 John 6:1 -51 Key Concepts – Adoration of God is primarily a recognition of the reality that God is. It praises God for His own sake and gives Him glory not for what He does, but simply because He is. – The practice of Eucharistic Adoration flows from the belief in the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. In Eucharistic Adoration, God is with us, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. – God adores us. To adore God, sometimes we simply need to behold the one beholding us.
