The Appointment A Life Night on Encountering Jesus About This Life Night The Life Night begins with a fun Gather game that has teens surprised by face-to-face encounters. The Life Night continues to a combined Proclaim and Break. The first part of the Proclaim/Break is a teaching on the face-to-face encounters people had with Jesus as recorded in Scripture, followed by a small group discussion. The second part of the Proclaim/Break is a teaching on our face-to-face encounter with Jesus in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, followed by a question and answer panel on Reconciliation. During the Send, teens write letters of contrition to Jesus and are reintroduced to the Act of Contrition. Goal of This Night The goal of The Appointment is to explore biblical accounts of people encountering Jesus and receiving mercy and healing, and to learn that we encounter Jesus and the same mercy and healing in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Catechism # 1422 - 1456 # 1468 Scripture Matthew 4:23 Matthew 8:1 -4 Matthew 9:27 -34 Key Concepts – In Scripture, people encountered Jesus in a variety of ways. Some people happened upon Him. Some people heard about Him and travelled a great distance to see Him. Some people even brought their friends to Him. – Likewise, we, too, can encounter Jesus in a variety of ways: Mass, Adoration, Life Nights, prayer, in conversations with friends and family, moments of silence, etc. – One of the more difficult appointments to make is an appointment to meet Jesus in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. When we approach Jesus and ask for healing in this Sacrament, we walk away healed. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
