Product Overview

The Daily Examen of St. Ignatius, derived from The Spiritual Exercises, is a 10 to 20 minute prayer that should be undertaken at least once a day. The Examen is designed for restful contemplation, and this version is adapted to the demands of contemporary life. Prayer for Finding God in All Things includes a Foreword by Avery Cardinal Dulles, diverse quotations from the Scriptures as well as distinguished spiritual writers, and a selection of possible closing prayers. Dulles writes, "[T]his booklet can be a godsend. Following the true spirit of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Sister Joan L. Roccasalvo, C.S.J. shows how the daily examen, moving beyond conventional moralism, can contribute to a loving relationship with God and blend into a prayer of trustful gratitude."

    Great prayer guide

    Posted by Suzanne Marutollo on Oct 3rd 2016

    I was introduced to this book in the last 2 years, and it has become an important part of my daily prayer. I find myself amazed at how different chapters and quotations speak to me at different times. As a mother of a young son, I am very busy, but this book is a perfect way to end my day in prayer. I treasure the writing and wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

    Excellent resource for prayer

    Posted by Joseph Marutollo on Oct 3rd 2016

    As a recent graduate of a Jesuit university, I try to pray using the Ignatian examen method on a daily basis. This book is critical to my daily prayer, and it is a wonderful resource for "contemplatives in action." It is a book I use regularly, and its size is perfect for reading on a train in the midst of a busy commute. I am very grateful for Sr. Roccasalvo's useful chapters and prayer guidance. The book is a tremendous resource for anyone hoping to improve their prayer life.
