Relationships and the Examen

Something to think about | “The Examen of relationships asks that you grow conscious of a reality we take so much for granted that we do not think about it at all. How often do you note that the sun rose this morning? How much do you value the water that comes from your tap? We treat our relationships rather like that. They are just there. They do not take thinking about except perhaps in special circumstances like an argument or a celebration. But each relation is a gift greater than today’s sun, and each person given to you to love and be loved by is as indispensable as the pure water you thoughtlessly drink.”

Joseph Tetlow, SJ
