A monthly Day of Recollection is a time set aside specifically for a Christian to seriously go deeper into his or her relationship with God. It is an opportunity to spend a couple of hours in prayer and conversation with God guided by meditation, spiritual reading, and an examination of conscience before the Blessed Sacrament.

As it is not always possible to participate in person, the St. Josemaria Institute is helping to make available the resources to make a day of recollection on your own each month:
