Prior Examen Prayers:
The theme for Jesuit High School this year is from Bl. John Henry Newman who wrote in his diary that - he has a part in God’s great work, he is a link in a chain and a bond of connection between persons. - While not always successful, we do seek to be that presence in the world and we invite you to join us.
On the day after Ash Wednesday, in Rome, Pope Francis told the priests of his diocese: “Growth in faith happens through encounters with the Lord during the course of our lives. These encounters act as a treasure of memory and are our living faith, in a story of personal salvation.” He asked them to focus on three things for their growth – memory, hope, and discernment of the moment.
May these Examens we read help with your memories, hopes, and especially your discernment of each moment.
A prayer-filled Lent to you -– one that changes our hearts, one that changes our minds, and, as we are reminded by the Jesuits, teaches us to be generous and not to count the cost, to labor and not to seek reward.
Please join us for our Lenten Examen Prayer each day as prayed by our classmates during school. We will try to post them by 1:30 pm each day following our 12:35 reading. These Examen Prayers follow the reflection of St. Ignatius of Loyola and are meant to make each one of us look at the past day and how our relationship with God grew over the last 24 hours.
