The Saturday Examen

During this first week of the new year, I’ve explored my relationship with Jesus. I’ve met him at the crib, responded to him calling me to follow him, and recognised him shaping my life.

Which encounter with Jesus stands out for me? Why is this? What did I experience? What has brought me joy this week?

What has surprised me? I give thanks to God for these special times.

Where have I felt uncomfortable or resistant to God?Where have I struggled? I tell God about these times too.

As I look towards the coming week I ask for the grace to enter fully into all that God has in store for me, as the Spirit leads me further into the truth of Jesus Christ.

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.
