The Examen

Behold Prayer
Behold Prayer


Have you ever done an Examen? This type of prayer—most popularly associated with the Jesuits—is an evaluation of one's thoughts and conduct. And it's typically performed on a daily basis. The easiest way to do an Examen is to ask oneself, "how might I have sinned today?"⠀

A daily Examen is a great way to remember God's mercy and love for us, as well as to grow in spiritual virtue and discipline.⠀

Is an Examen something you would consider adding to your daily prayers?
