Examen Prayer

As I mentioned in the previous post, we have enjoyed a Jesuit led day of recollection. During the day, one session included a detailed look at the Examen Prayer, THE Jesuit prayer. A book highly recommended on the subject is by Father Timothy M. Gallagher, O.M.V., who leads retreats on the spiritual exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola. Fr Tim is also a much sought after spiritual director. The cheapest place I could find the book was with The Book Depository at £8.71 with free delivery. It is also available on amazon, as you would expect.

You may also want to look at the Oblates of the Virgin Mary website, from which I quote:

Inflamed with the spirit of an apostle, Venerable Bruno Lanteri founded the Congregation of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary in 1826 in northern Italy. He taught the Oblates to examine attentively the "signs of the times", to better guide men and women to find the answers they seek in Christ. The vision he lived is the vision we embrace.
Interesting that Ven. Bruno should be seeking the signs of the times given the recent anniversary of Bl. John XXIII calling the Second Vatican Council.

Enjoy the book!

  1. In the same theme of examens, the site http://www.examen.me is a great way to put examens into practice. It allows you to journal your prayers as you go through your Prayer of Examen.
