The Examen is one of the most important forms of daily prayer that St. Ignatius of Loyola entrusted to his companions, and--by extension--to each of us who wish to seek and find God in all things. The Examen is a habit, or practice, whereby one reviews the events of one’s day--the large things, and small--in order to discern the movements of one’s heart and spirit, and to reflect on those moments where we might find God calling us into a deeper sense of awareness of, and communion with, ourselves, our communities, our common home, and our God.

This year, we commemorate the 500 year anniversary of one of the most significant events in the life of St. Ignatius: his being struck in the leg by a cannonball at the Battle of Pamplona. This event forever changed Ignatius’s life, and started him on a journey of spiritual and religious insight. Today, not only the Jesuits, but their lay collaborators as well, follow in Ignatius’s footsteps through the practice of the Examen. In this Ignatian year, we invite you to join us in an Examen to help deepen our sense of belonging and purpose in our work at Jesuit institutions. We invite you to take a moment and reflect on the ways in which your gifts and talents can continue to meet the needs of the world.

Please join this Examen for prayerful reflection before the Opening Ceremony for AJCU-CITM 2021!
