Goal of this Life Night
The goal of this Life Night is to bring to light the real spiritual battle between good (God) and evil (Satan). This Life Night will help the teens equip themselves with the weapons of prayer and Sacraments. The teens will also learn about the role of St. Michael the Archangel and his powerful intercession and protection.
About this night
Evil Spirits, Satan, Spiritual Battle… these are the things out of horror movies, right? Many of our teens (and adults) have bought into the lie that Satan and evil are not real. The truth is they are real and there is a battle being waged for our souls. This is not a truth to scare people into “being good”; it is a reality of which we need to be aware. We must be prepared to defend ourselves (and others) against evil. This Life Night looks at these realities through the lens of the cross where victory was won for us. It is important that the Core Team and those presenting this night are well informed and prepared to present this topic to the teens. The Gather will help the teens realize that “reality” is not limited to what we see. The Proclaim will explain the reality of evil and spiritual battle in our world. The Break will give the teens an opportunity to look at Ephesians 6 and apply it to their lives. Finally, the Send will ask the intercession and protection of St. Michael the Archangel over the teens.
