The Examen - How Was Your Day?
What is the Examen?
The Examen practice is a simple set of questions that help us discover how God is present in our entire life. Practicing the Examen involves taking a few minutes of quiet at the end of your day to reflect on the day, and then invite Jesus to guide those self reflections. As we practice this self-evaluation before God- we will find ourselves becoming people who live more fully with God in our daily lives.
How to use the Examen?
At the end of the day, to prepare, find a quiet place. You can do this alone or sit with others and share together.
- For what moment today am I most grateful?
- For what moment today am I least grateful?
- What is Jesus saying to me about each of these?
