Sever A Life Night on Purgatory About this Life Night This Life Night begins with a race that requires teens to complete tasks to detach from one another. The Proclaim teaches about the purpose of purgatory and offers tools to help sever unhealthy attachments to sin. The Break is a time of reflection followed by an opportunity to sign Mass intention cards for recently deceased members of the parish community. The Send is a guided Way of the Cross meditation for the souls in purgatory. Goal of This Night The goal of Sever is to help the teens recognize the need for purification before entering heaven and to explain the practices of penance, almsgiving, and indulgences as part of that process. Catechism # 958 # 1030 # 1032 # 1471 - 1472 Scripture 2 Maccabees 12:46 Mark 9:43 1 Corinthians 3:15 Revelation 21:27 Key Concepts • Heaven is total and perfect union with God which leaves no room for the disordered attachment to created things caused by sin. • In purgatory, one is assured of heaven but first must go through a process of purification to be conformed to Christ. • Those in purgatory are aided in the process of sanctification by the rest of the body of Christ through penance, almsgiving, and indulgences.
