The Examen Prayer

  • Father Timothy M. Gallagher, Daily Prayer of Discernment: The Examen Prayer
  • Finding God in All Things: The Teaching of St. Ignatius of Loyola on Prayer (EWTN, 4 DVDs)

    In this set of thirteen conferences, shown on EWTN, Fr. Gallagher explains St. Ignatius of Loyola’s daily examen prayer and his teaching on meditation and contemplation—how to pray with Scripture. The daily examen prayer has helped many to find God in the busyness of daily life, and so learn to follow his daily leading. St. Ignatius’s clear and profound teaching on how to reflect prayerfully on Scripture (meditation) and how to pray with the Gospels with the aid of the imagination (contemplation), has blessed generations of those who love the Lord. Fr. Gallagher’s presentation renders these forms of prayer accessible to all.
