Prayerful Introspection

From Roberta Bondi’s To Love as God Loves: “[P]rayerful introspection…means looking inside ourselves to see what it is that makes us tick or fails to make us tick in order that we may love. It has to do with observing ourselves to see what we think or feel or do that hurts us or makes us hurt others so that we can do something about what needs to be corrected, and strengthen what needs to be strengthened. It involves acknowledging how complex we all are as we try to move in several often conflicting directions at once. Wallowing in guilt or helplessness for its own sake is not what introspection is about…”
