A great way to end the day

We never miss listening and meditating with the Examen. It is a blessing.

Valuable

Spend some time with this. It will improve your mind and spirit. You won’t be sadder when you are done.

Full meditation not downloading this week

I am having a problem with receiving the entire meditation this week. Yesterday, the podcast would not go beyond minute 8. Today it quit right after the daily reflection. I hope that this can be corrected. It’s a wonderful way to end, or occasionally start, my day.
