Saint Ignatius of Loyola was a 16th century priest who co-founded and led the religious order called the Society of Jesus, or simply the Jesuits. In 1548 St Ignatius wrote Spiritual Exercises, a simple set of meditations, prayers, and other practices. Perhaps the most well known of these exercises is the 'Daily Examen'.

This practice helps to build intimacy and trust in God. It helps us to slow down, remembering and reflecting on the events of our day. It brings us to a place of quiet contemplation, peace, and gratitude. It can help us to worry less, discern more, and grow in your relationship with God.

  1. Be Still – Become aware of God’s presence.
  2. Give thanks – Review the day with gratitude.
  3. Reflect – Pay attention to your emotions.
  4. Pray – Choose one feature of the day and pray from it.
  5. Hope – Look toward tomorrow.
