The twenty four meditations which make up A Retreat for Lay People were composed by the author during his long experience of preaching retreats. They are so arranged as to fit in with the traditional lines laid down in the Spiritual Exercises. They fall into three groups of eight: of these, the first represents the “foundations”; the second is based on the life and death of our Blessed Lord; the third envisages practical day-today needs. Between the first group and the second, and again between the second group and the third, there are useful suggestions to those who are following the devotion to the Holy Hour. Their direct and clear style will help both young and mature readers make a good retreat.
