Blood of Sacrifice A Life Night on the Priesthood of Christ About this Night The Gather is a small group game that introduces the concept of mediation by allowing one teen from each small group to look at a design and give instructions on how to recreate it. The Proclaim provides context for the need for priests, their significance in the Old Testament, and Christ’s fulfillment of the Old Covenant priesthood. The combined Break and Send lead the teens through a meditation on the veils in their life that keep them from Christ, ending with Eucharistic Adoration. Goal of This Night The goal of Blood of Sacrifice is to explain the purpose of priestly sacrifice throughout the history of God’s people and unpack the significance of Christ’s priesthood.
