This graphic from Busted Halo shows how to pray the Daily Examen. The Examen is a spiritual excercise from St. Ignatius of Loyola – the founder of the Jesuits.
Praying the Daily Examen is a way to pause from our busy lives and seek God’s presence. We look at the day, try to discern what is good, and seek to correct that which is not.
This is an excellent practice for all, young and old. My older sons attend Jesuit high school, and they take a few minutes every afternoon to practice the Examen. It is just a way of pausing and remembering why we are here – to love and serve God.
