The Examen with Father James Martin, S.J.
The examen is a centuries-old prayer practice that helps you find God in your daily life. Our podcast is based on a technique that St. Ignatius Loyola outlined in the Spiritual Exercises, his classic manual for prayer. Each week Father Martin will provide you with a new reflection and guide you through the examen prayer.
The Word: Scripture Reflections from America Media
The Word is America’s weekly reflection on the readings you’ll hear at Mass. Since the 1950s, we have provided insightful commentary from leading scriptural scholars on the Sunday readings. Now you can listen to an audio version of these reflections, published every Wednesday. As an added bonus, we publish daily reflections during Advent and Lent to help you pray during those important liturgical seasons.

Drawing from the insights of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, the hosts create a fun, relatable atmosphere that invites young adult Catholics to become a part of an interactive online faith community.
