Examen for life during COVID-19

The Ignation Solidarity Network helps us take time to reflect with an Examen adapted for the changes in our lifestyle created by COVID-19.

COVID-19 Examen

A suggestion for daily prayer/reflection during Lent:

  1. Take 5 deep breaths to relax and become more aware of God’s presence.
  2. Ask for the grace to listen.
  3. Read the reflection slowly and pay attention to what stirs within you.
  4. Speak and listen to God about what is happening within you.
  5. Rest in God who rests in you. Give thanks in your own personal way.
