Blindside Teaching Office in the Church: the Magisterium About this Life Night This Life Night will show the beauty and freedom that is offered in living an obedient Christian life. This night can be very hard for some teens who live in a world that tells them to live by the authority of feeling. Prepare for this night by praying that the hearts of the teens will be open to seeing the beauty that is within the Magisterium of Holy Mother Church. The Life Night will show the teens that the authority of the Magisterium comes from Jesus Christ and that He has protected it for over 2,000 years from the trends of societies and cultures. The night begins with a skit that demonstrates the need for authority within the Church. The break will give teens an opportunity to look at different issues that have arisen in current events when the Magisterium declares a revealed Truth. The teens will end the night by praying for obedience through the Litany of Humility. Goal of This Night The goal of this night is to help the teens understand that obedience to the Magisterium can bring true freedom. Teens will be able to recognize that the Magisterium is made up of the pope and bishops who interpret what has been revealed as Truth in sacred Scripture and sacred Tradition. Catechism # 85 - 87 # 890 # 2033 - 2036 Scripture Luke 10:16 Acts 2:42 1 Timothy 3:15 1 Corinthians 2:9 -16 Key Concepts The Magisterium is made up of the pope and bishops who are entrusted with authentically interpreting sacred Scripture and sacred Tradition. Obedience helps us to discover as a Church what the Holy Spirit has revealed. Broken or sinful members of the Church do not change or discredit Truth that has been revealed by the Holy Spirit.
