Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Teach me your ways, O Lord

In August, as summer wanes and many schools resume classes, time seems to disappear as schedules intensify. St. Ignatius of Loyola developed a simple method of meditation known as the Daily Examen. This form of prayer encourages us to review each day and to recognize God as active in our daily lives. Follow these steps:

• Set aside 10-15 minutes.

• Quiet yourself and recall God’s presence, thanking God for His love and asking the Holy Spirit for guidance.

• Review your day, thanking God for the ways He blessed you this day.

• Review your day again, thinking about the opportunities you had to use the gifts God has given to you, identifying the times you either did or didn’t.

• Thank God for the ways you grew closer to Him and ask forgiveness for the opportunities you missed or rejected.

• Resolve to cooperate with God’s grace in the days to come.

• Conclude with the Lord’s Prayer.
