A blessing for Examen

I pray that you may grow in the awareness of God’s continuous presence in your everyday experiences and discover that presence in both the private and public worlds in which you live. Then, later, living in faith and meditating on the word of God, you will be able to find God always, and everywhere seek God’s will in every event. I also pray that you will be able to see Jesus, the Lord, in all people and in all their struggles for liberation and be able to make good judgments and correct decisions in all you do and in all you are. ~ Orientations by John Veltri, S.J.
