Daily Examen

St. Ignatius developed a simple daily prayer pattern called the Examen. It helps us ask: Where am I thankful? How was my day, really? Where do I need to extend or accept forgiveness to others or myself? What tweak will I make for tomorrow?

It doesn’t have to take long. Dedicate 10 minutes and see what happens.

Here’s a version for when you are daring to take a step you know matters for your Long Haul and things begin to feel scarce. It was inspired by:

  • this story about Jesus and the magic of the Fabric (Luke 9. 12-17) and,
  • this Greg Meyerism: “It’s always the right time to do the next right thing for the right reason.”

LISTEN here to a guided meditation or spend time with the story, the quote and the 6 questions on the left.

Come as
you are.
Yes, Really
