Product Description

This step-by-step guide to creating a Particular Examen is based on Jesus' five wounds and contains prayers, a sample format, and the most common errors to avoid in prayer, work, study, and recreation. Because we all suffer with the same set of sins, these focused meditations will help you overcome your flaws.

This reprint of the 1952 classic, Rooting Out Hidden Faults by James F. McElhone, CSC, includes prayers from the traditional Roman Missal for each topic, assisting you in cultivating the correct mental attitude and heart unction for fruitful meditation.

This is an excellent resource for any Catholic desiring to build a spiritual holiness plan, whether ordained, consecrated, or lay. It includes self-inventory questions for each vice to aid with determining assault angles, as well as debunks common myths about each vice. By considering the cardinal and theological virtues, you will discover strategies to overcome your vices and therefore serve God more fully, as well as principles for practicing brotherly charity.

This book will show you how to build the matching virtue of humility by reflecting on the lives of Jesus and Mary if your underlying sin is a sort of pride. Similarly, if your primary flaw is avarice, the religious references supplied will strengthen your determination and encourage you to think of poverty instead. Penetrating reflections are offered to overcome lust with purity, anger with
meekness, gluttony with temperance, envy with common sense, and sloth with zeal.

You will also acquire tips on how to:
  • Read the Bible more efficaciously to reflect on Christ and grow in union with God
  • Thank God for His goodness and the many graces He showers upon you and others daily
  • Ask the Holy Ghost for self-knowledge, growth in virtue, and the seven gifts
  • Determine your dominant sin and assess your progress daily through the Particular Examen
  • Practice the presence of God in imitation of Our Lady in every circumstance
  • Develop personal and practical resolutions and a firm purpose of amendment

Hidden saints embolden the Church in times of persecution. Take up your cross. Defend your faith for God’s glory and the salvation of souls.
