Sex is More A Life Night on the Fullness of Sexuality About this Life Night This Life Night begins with a small group game in which teens guess what fictional character said a particular quote. It ends with a quote from Olaf, a character in the movie Frozen, “Love is putting someone else’s needs before yours.” The Proclaim explains the Church’s teaching on love and sexuality. The Break is a small group discussion and activity that engages the teens with the Church’s teaching. The Life Night concludes with the youth minister leading everyone in a prayer of thanksgiving for the truth, beauty, and goodness in how God created love and sexuality. Goal of This Night The Environment is the same from the previous Life Night with a few items replaced with items that are specific to this Life Night. Do whatever you can to transform your meeting space into something awe-inspiring and beautiful. Have classic, romantic images rotating on a projector (think Guatav’s Klimt’s The Kiss or photos from weddings of members of your community). Have beautiful, romantic, instrumental music playing in the background (think Pachabelle’s Canon in D). Catechism # 372 # 1625 - 1628 # 1643 - 1660 # 2331 - 2362 Scripture Genesis 2:18 -24 John 17:10 Romans 5:8 1 John 4:8 Key Concepts • The Church is often misunderstood and thought to teach that sexuality is bad and to be repressed. In reality, the Church believes that sexuality is so good that it requires more than what modern views on sexuality propose. • Catholics believe that the purpose of sex is more than to experience passing pleasure, but has significant, lasting effects. We believe sex is unitive and procreative. We also believe that love is not only a good feeling, but also an active and conscious choice to make a gift of self to your beloved. • Self-giving love has innate goodness, it’s a transcendental, and has the potential to reveal God and His perfect love to the world.
