The Power of Holy Desire A Life Night on why Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Matter in Sexuality About this Life Night This Life Night begins with skits in which the teens act out scenes from their life that shed light on the power desire has over their actions and how the virtue of purity enables us to choose truth, goodness, and beauty. After a brief sharing of their experience with the skits, a youth minister or Core Member gives the Proclaim and then sends the teens into small groups to discuss the role of truth, beauty, and goodness and the power of desire in their lives. Following their small groups, everyone will gather in the church to end the Life Night with a time of Eucharistic Adoration, remembering that Jesus is Author of beauty, the Source of goodness, and the one who constantly sends us out to live in the truth. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to introduce teenagers to the transcendental realities of truth, beauty, and goodness, and their role in the redemption of sexuality. Catechism # 27 - 30 # 1718 - 1719 # 2500 Scripture Jeremiah 17:9 Psalms 37:3 -7 Proverbs 3:5 -6 Matthew 5:8 Colossians 3:1 -17 Key Concepts • Original sin darkens our intellect, weakens our will, and disorders our passions and desires. • By understanding and embracing the transcendental realities of truth, beauty, and goodness as windows into the Divine, the effects of original sin can be reversed, and we can experience redemption in the Lord Jesus Christ. • As we grow in relationship with Jesus, our intellect is enlightened by His truth, our will is strengthened by His goodness, and our desires are purified by His beauty. This has a powerful and lasting effect on the gift of sexuality and our personal growth in purity and chastity. Truth Beauty Goodness Purity End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
