Deacon Peter Andre’s homily from 9/7 referenced the Daily Examen. Many have requested information about this a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and discern his direction for us. As promised, here is a look at the basics of The Examen:
The Examen consists of five parts:
1) Gratitude: Recall anything from the day for which you are especially grateful and give thanks. 2) Review: Recall the events of the day, from start to finish and in detail, noticing where you felt God’s presence, and where you accepted or turned away from any invitations to grow in love. 3) Sorrow: Recall any actions or dispositions you regret 4) Forgiveness: Ask God’s forgiveness. Decide if you need to reconcile with anyone you may have hurt. 5) Grace: Ask God for the grace you need for the next day and an ability to see God’s presence more clearly You can click on “The Daily Examen” picture above to download a guide that you can keep on your refrigerator, your daily journal or someplace that will remind you to use this wonderful spiritual tool.
