Daily Examen Journal

Daily Examen Journal - text next to a pen

Introduce friends to the Examen or try a new approach to the prayer with a daily Examen journal—printable and foldable as a booklet. The booklet can be downloaded from the Catechist’s Journey blog. The prayer steps in the journal are as described by Mark E. Thibodeaux, SJ, in Reimagining the Ignatian Examen.

In addition to following the steps day by day as one learns the prayer, keeping a journal of prayer time can be a fruitful practice as one grows deeper in a relationship with God.

Have you journaled as part of your Examen practice? Tell us about it in the comments.


  1. I have been journaling my examen for almost two years. I use an online program “DAYONE” and found it most beneficial. My mind wonders too much when I just do it in my head. Journaling helps me focus and I have a record, although I confess, I do not go back and reread my entries very often. Thank you for your website
