Greetings everyone! 

Last night we discussed what it means to become a Saint!

We started off with doing Lectio Divino on the Parable of the Sower,and then went right to business with a video from Father Mike Schmidt. Father Mike said" God wants you to be holy, so he is going to set you on a path of purification if you choose to do his will. He is the one who is going to make you holy. This process is going to strip away many things you hold dear. It’s going to require active participation in his will, doing what is right and good. But it’s also going to require passive acceptance of things that are out of your control. See everything you do and experience as a chance to grow in holiness, and God will make you into a saint." See his whole video below, AND check out our discussion questions from last night too! 

God bless and see you for our FINAL LifeNight of the year NEXT Wednesday!

Greetings everyone! 

Last night it was great getting to pray with you, play games with you, and have a great discussion about the Mass. 

We discussed how in everything we do in life, it is essential to understand the goal or purpose, if we want to participate in a fruitful manner. In the Catholic Mass, the goal of our worship is quite clearly directed at the praise of God and the sanctification of the world. In fact, the Church puts these very words on the lips of her ministers and faithful at every celebration of the Eucharist. Check out our discussion questions below AND the great picture Lauren drew of Sofia. 

God bless and see you all next Wednesday!

Greetings everyone! 

Last night was a BLAST! Getting to play a ton of games, great conversation, and AMAZING prayer time! 

Our topic last night was all about how the Catholic Mass is full of signs and symbols. Where do these signs come from? Where do they get their meaning? The Church teaches that the meaning comes from four categories: creation, human culture, the Old Testament and they are fully revealed in the mission of Christ narrated for us in the New Testament. The sacramental system depends on signs that are perceptible. Every created thing has the impression of God, the Divine Artisan.

Part of our night included meditating and disscusing the below questions

1. In what ways are created things used in the Mass?
2. What events or images from the Sacred Scriptures can you recognize in the celebration of the Mass?
3. What are some of the signs in the liturgy that you would like to better understand? How do the words the Church uses manifest the meaning of these signs?

God bless and see you all soon! Veronica 

“In his preaching the Lord Jesus often makes use of the signs of creation to make known the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. He performs healings and illustrates his preaching with physical signs or symbolic gestures. He gives new meaning to the deeds and signs of the Old Covenant, above all to the Exodus and the Passover, for he himself is the meaning of all these signs.” CCC, n°. 1151“In his preaching the Lord Jesus often makes use of the signs of creation to make known the mysteries of the Kingdom of God.

Hey all! It was great getting to see you all yesterday! After all of the snow, spring breaks, and just life- it felt like it had been forever! 

Afterwards we watched a video on the importance of our Church building. How it is meant to be MORE than just a building. That led to some AMAZING conversation about what a church is, marriage, vocation, and a bunch of other stuff. It was awesome!

Don't forget that next week we DON'T have a LifeNight! It is the Day of Mercy! Make sure that you celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation! 

God bless and see you all soon! Veronica 

The Catholic Church is a sacramental Church which means deeper realities are expressed in perceptible signs. The church building is not a neutral place; it is not simply a skin for liturgical action. It is a place where prayer happens; it is a temple where sacrifice is offered.

The building is a sacramental sign: there is found the Body of Christ. The door signifies the crossing of the threshold and entry into the Garden of Eden. It is return to Paradise.

Greetings all! 

It was so great to see so many of you at LifeNight on Wednesday! We had a great night of defining our prayer goals for the next month! Check out what we did here! We also chalked the front door of the youth room. We are going to be keeping that up all year long!

Check out what that all means here Chalking the Door: An Epiphany House Blessing  Next week at LifeNight we are going to have a "finals study break" night! Come on down for an evening of fun, games, and food. 
Do you ever feel like your life has no direction or purpose? Fr. Mike talks about how we can find meaning in our lives by defining goals and making small changes every day to help achieve those goals.
