The Ignatian Focus for this week has been: “I reflect on the sin of angels: the exquisite beings, once beautiful and intelligent, rebelled, and were transformed from creatures of grace to embodiments of malice.” (The Spiritual Exercises 50).  Ps. 139 tells cries out, “Search me, O God, and know my heart, test me and know my thoughts.”

Each day as I do the Examen, I am so aware of my own evil in my heart, and how I try to over come it, I am reminded of the malice that has caused and causes people pain. I see malice so intimately in the lives of others each day of my life, here the pain and see the pain, and touch the pain resulting from that malice. All I know to do is to turn to God and examine my life, and seek to cut that malice out, and pray for God’s grace, and then live out that grace into the lives others as best I can. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
