Trust or Fear A Life Night on Suffering About this Life Night This Life Night begins with small groups discussing the driving question: “Why do people suffer?” The Proclaim focuses on the types of suffering we experience, the cause of suffering, and the ability to unite our suffering to Christ’s suffering. During the Break, teens create prayer bracelets as well as a small personal prayer they can pray during times of trials. The Send consists of the teens exchanging the bracelets as a reminder to pray for their peers. Goal of This Night The goal of Trust or Fear is to address the cause of suffering in the world and encourage teens to turn to Jesus, who suffers with us and can transform our suffering into something beneficial. Catechism # 309 # 385 Scripture Psalms 27:1 Sirach 2:1 -6 John 16:33 Key Concepts • The many forms of suffering we experience and witness are a result of the disorder caused by original sin. • Although the world tries to eradicate or numb suffering, Christ unites our suffering to His and makes it redemptive. • In the Eucharist, we encounter the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus and, at the same time, receive strength and a disposition of gratitude and thanksgiving.
