10 Suggestions For A Good Traditional Catholic Nightly Examination Of Conscience

It is Catholic tradition for priests, religious and laity who pray Compline, (Night Prayer) to pause at the beginning, and do an Examination of Conscience.  The purpose of this is to  look back over the day and see in what area of our life we might have sinned this day and in what way you can improve tomorrow.

Angel of Death_VERNET, HoraceSo I wish to list a few helpful suggestions to help us make use of this daily examination.
