The Ignatian Prayer of Examen
Lenten Small Group
One of the greatest mystics of all time and founder of the Jesuits, St. Ignatius of Loyola, called the Examen prayer the most important quarter of an hour of a person’s day. The 500-year-old daily practice of honest self-assessment and reflection is a founding principle of Ignatian spirituality. When practiced regularly the Examen promises to connect our consciousness to the divine presence that is with us at all times and in all things and clarifies our response to it.
