The Daily Examen is a way to prayerfully reflect upon the events of our day. We can use the examen to see how God is working in our lives and ponder His direction for us. St. Ignatius taught the Examen was a gift from God, and God wants it shared as widely as possible. Well, we’re doing our part here at The Well to share it!
In the October 2020 episode of The Water Jar podcast, guest Janet Paulson shared a helpful way to remember the five steps of a Daily Examen: the Five Daily R’s. The printable shared here is inspired by the work of Fr. Mark Thibodeaux and his book Reimagining the Ignatian Examen: Fresh Ways to Pray from Your Day.
