IMITATION OF CHRIST: meditation of the day...

If you cannot recollect yourself continuously, do so once a day at least, in the morning or in the evening. In the morning make a resolution and in the evening examine yourself on what you have said this day, what you have done and thought, for in these things perhaps you have often offended God and those about you. (any good spiritual practice will start with a morning prayer, meditation time and end with an evening exam or recollection of the days activities)

Arm yourself like a man against the devil's assaults. Curb your appetite (why does this keep coming up in my meditations?!@) Never be completely unoccupied, but read or write or pray or meditate (one of the reasons that I decided to blog) or do something for the common good. Bodily discipline, however, must be undertaken with discretion and is not to be practiced indiscriminately by everyone. (seek spiritual direction)
