Good Questions

Whither goest thou?

Where is thy soul?

Is it in peace?

If it is troubled, how?

How art thou fulfilling the duties of thy position?

What are they?

What effort hast thou made to amend thy disposition, and conquer thy sins?

Hast thou been faithful to the light God has given thee?

What means shouldst thou use, especially with regard to thy most besetting sin or temptation?

Hast thou fought against it?

What hast thou done with the circumstances of the last month?

Have they wrought God’s work in thee?

Pere Ravignan

This was included in one my daily devotional readings.  Asking these questions would be an excellent way to examine your conscience monthly.  I may give it a try!  Gustave François Xavier Delacroix de Ravignan (2 December 1795, Bayonne, France – 26 February 1858, Paris, France) was a French Jesuit preacher and author.
