Sunday Best The Necessity of Worship About this Life Night This Life Night begins the Life Teen semester about the Mass, “The Summit.” It begins with dividing teens into small groups. It is highly recommended that these small groups be kept the same for every Life Night, leaving space in each group for new teens that may attend over the course of the semester. After small groups are divided, teens participate in a relay race that involves all the activities people may participate in on a Sunday. The Proclaim introduces the topic of the semester and challenges teenagers to understand the necessity of worship and Mass as the greatest way God has given us to worship Him. The Break involves a time of journaling and reflection, which allows teenagers to identify areas of false-worship in their lives. They discuss their reflections in small group. The Send for this Life Night includes an opportunity for teenagers to prayerfully invite Christ to become the center of their lives and of their worship. Goal of This Night This Life Night introduces the Mass semester, helps teenagers understand the necessity of worship, and challenges them to understand Mass as the way that God has given us to worship Him.

It is only in a relationship with God that we can find truth and happiness. We celebrate the Sabbath on Sunday by celebrating Mass. This day is set aside to rest, worship God, and celebrate the Paschal Mystery of Christ. It fulfills God’s command for us to rest and worship. The adoration and worship of something apart from God is called idolatry. It honors a created thing above God and causes our lives to become disordered.
