St. Ignatius recognized that while many people could benefit from the Spiritual Exercises, some might not be suitable candidates for the entire 30–day retreat. In the “Introductory Explanations” (or Annotations) to the Exercises, Ignatius acknowledges directors who lead those candidates through a “retreat in daily life.” Fr. Tetlow’s manual is an aid for such directors. He offers guidance on preparing for the Exercises, and for each of the retreat’s four weeks. And he provides practical advice for conducting conferences with retreatants, suggestions of scriptural passages particularly suited to prayer, and more. Choosing Christ in the World includes notes based on Fr. Tetlow’s own directorial experience. This new edition of the book also recognizes Ignatius’s observation that in cases in which the material of the Exercises themselves might be beyond the grasp of some individuals, a leader might assign “light works” for prayer and spiritual growth.
