Saturday Examen: The Holy Guardians

Prepare yourself for prayer today by focussing on your breath…take a few deep breaths in…and then a few releasing breaths out. Notice how the change in breath brings stillness and an awareness of God’s presence.

 

Cast your mind back over the week… we have heard of conversion to a life of service …we have been reminded of God’s eternal love and the watchfulness of the angels… we have been called to be vulnerable. Today is the Feast of the Holy Guardians, a tradition and a reminder that each of us is held in God’s care. Jesus himself accepted the comfort of the angels in his life.  Commit yourself to their protection as you become aware of what is stirring in you …

 

Is there a particular moment God is drawing you to remember? Notice what rises to the surface naturally… allow the moment to reveal itself …

 

Where do you feel an openness of heart or a sense of revelation as you look back at your prayer journey? Again, notice what arises naturally…

 

Do you notice any tensions, distress or frustration?

 

Looking forward, what would you like to ask God for, to find movement in your prayer and spirituality?

 

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
