The goal of this Life Night is to help the teens break open Life Teen’s 2012 theme, “Radiant Joy.” This night looks at the origin of joy as a gift from God and how this fruit of the Spirit must be shared.
About this night
Life Teen’s 2012 theme is Radiant Joy. Through this theme the Life Teen family seeks to understand what it means to live a life filled with joy. This Life Night helps break open this theme for teens. It begins with a quick game that involves guessing which smiles belong to Core Members, priests, or teens. A clip from the movie The Muppets will transition the night from the game into the teaching. The teaching for this night will focus on the difference between happiness and joy, as well as how living a life filled with the Holy Spirit and completely dependent on God bring true and lasting joy. After small groups, the Life Night will end with a time of Eucharistic Adoration and a reflection on Mary’s example of joy found in her Magnificat.
