Lenten Tidbits - Examination of Conscience

In this season as we polish up our lives to follow Christ better, God often gives us delicious morsels from spiritual reading in place of the food we have renounced in fasting and abstinence.  In meditation #103 of Divine Intimacy Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalene writes about examination of conscience:
Another important the remembrance of our duty to sustain and guard the desire for sanctity and to enliven our determination to do always what is most pleasing to God; here is the heart of the spiritual life, of generosity.  It is also an excellent method to examine ourselves from God's point of view instead of our own, to ask ourselves if God is pleased with us and how He will judge our conduct.
