~Henry Ward Beecher
Do you do an examination of conscience at the end of each day? If so, what are the benefits derived from such an exercise? If not, do you have any idea what opportunties are being missed by neglecting such an exercise?
If there is no time spent in recollection in the evening, how do we ever determine if our day was well-spent? Did we grow closer to God? Did we more effectively love our neighbor today? If we never think about these things, how will we know if we are making any progress in the spiritual journey?
