The Send is a short reflection on integrity followed by an opportunity for the Sacrament of Confession. Goal of This Night The goal of Whatever It Takes is to help teens understand why cheating is detrimental to their academic formation and invite them to live in the spirit of truth. Catechism # 1694 # 2401 # 2464 # 2469 - 2470 Scripture Deuteronomy 5:19 Exodus 20:16 Proverbs 20:7 John 14:6 Key Concepts The increased competition for college scholarships and the fear of repercussions for doing poorly in school may drive some to be academically dishonest. The act of cheating harms the individual’s self-respect and deteriorates one’s confidence, making them more susceptible to be tempted to continue cheating in other areas. By living with integrity, we forgo the easy path and strive to live as a disciple of Jesus rooted in living justice and truth. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
