The other day, I met up with an old friend who I had not seen for some time. These types of conversations lend themselves to asking big questions. Lately, I’ve noticed that, as we get older, both the questions and the answers are becoming more simple.
We asked each other: “What is it that we need right now?” The answer that we came to was: “to slow down enough to attend to the sacramentality of our lives.” There it was. Full stop.
Perhaps more than any other habit, the Examen (prayed with as much consistency as I can muster) helps me to do this. Appreciation for this form of prayer, as well as our belief that young people have a unique and innate capacity to receive the love of God woven into their lives, led Katie Broussard and I to create The Examen Book.
We are delighted to launch the book this week. We hope that you will check it out and that it becomes a blessing on your journey.
(PS – If you would like to be one of our first reviewers, email me! We’ll send you access to the reviewer’s digital version of the book.)
