From advance planning to advice on bridging the return from the twenty-four week retreat to everyday life, this Director's Guide provides assistance to those organizing Ignatian retreats based on James W. Skehan's Place Me with Your Son and those wishing to deepen the previous retreat experience. This volume explains the foundations of each phase of the retreat and suggests ways to prepare for the transitions between the phases. Skehan reviews the basic concepts; anticipates problems and opportunities that may arise in each week; offers possible responses to exercitants' questions; and interprets Scriptural passages for modern readers. The Guide also includes a list of recommended supplemental readings and guidelines for integrating the retreat into the liturgical year.
