"God's touch, though taking place in a moment of time, lives on within us forever. We can continue to let an experience of God bear fruit within us by going back to it and lingering over it. Through this remembering, lingering, and reliving process, we open ourselves to God – we allow God to move within us, to touch our hearts again so that our own experiences of God ripple deep within us and can continue to make a difference in our lives.
– Maureen Conroy, The Discerning Heart
This is a beautiful description of what the daily examen does for us. It allows God to touch our hearts again.
