A Time For Fearless Faith

Phone: 262-689-9725

Examination of Conscience
  • Am I generous in the way I live the precepts of the church?
  • Did I skip Sunday Mass? Did I try to make the most of it, even if distracted? Did I tune it out and not try to tune back in?
  • Did I sacrifice other things for the sake of the Sabbath on Sunday, or did I, in effect, sacrifice the Sabbath for the sake of other things?
  • Have I been “saying” my prayers instead of “praying” them? Or neither? Do I begin and end my day in prayer? Do I only turn to God when I’m in need?
  • What have I done to increase my faith, hope and love? Do I pray for more faith, hope and love?
  • Do I dwell on my worries instead of dismissing them from my mind?
  • Do I fail in the virtue of hope by my attachment to the things of this world?
  • Do I try to see God’s providence in everything that “happens” in my life?
  • Do I try to see everything from the viewpoint of eternity?
  • Am I confident that, with God’s grace, I will be saved?
  • Do I allow myself to worry about my past life and thus weaken my hope in God‘s mercy?
  • How often today have I complained, even internally? Have I been moody or angry?
  • Did I put myself at the service of others, or have I used others for my sake?
  • Did I show my spouse(children, parents, other family) love in words and actions?
  • Did I respect my spouse(children, parents, other family) enough to be honest with them? 
  • How am I with my children? Am I careful about the example I set? Do I try to build their character, or is my discipline reactive, based on what bugs me?
  • How am I with my friends? Do I always make things go my way? Do I go along with them, even in what is morally offensive? Do I initiate or participate in gossip?
  • Have I dwelt on what I considered someone’s unkindness toward me today?
  • How am I with my employer? Do I make the best use of my time? Do I behave with gratitude for my employment?
  • How am I with those I oversee? Do I ignore their issues unless I have to deal with them? Am I overly lenient to save face? Am I too strict?
  • Is there someone that I consciously avoid because I dislike the person?
  • Do I battle the capital sins in myself? (Pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, anger, and sloth.)
  • Do I live my Christian principles when no one is watching? Online? At work? In what I read? In what I watch? In what I listen to? In the car?
  • Am I a different person in my thoughts? Do I think things about others I could never say? Or do I strive to live the Golden Rule starting in my own heart?
  • What have I done to improve my character? How have I fought against attachments that hold me back?
  • Did I send God away and block him out of certain areas of my life – social life, leisure life, work life, studies, etc.?
  • “Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother…”(John 19:25). Do I turn to Mary, teacher of the hidden and silent sacrifice, to be strong in the face of difficulties that arise in my life?
