“….instructions for a ten-day retreat with three meditations for each day. Each meditation usually has the following structure: general presentation of the theme (tizhi 題旨); preparatory prayer (zhuwen 祝文, xiaoyin 小引); composition of the place (dingxiang 定像); short prayer (jiandao 簡禱); "points" (si 思); colloquy (zhuyan 祝言); reflections (fuxing 覄省). At the end of the book there are instructions for confession and for self-examination (examen: shengcha 省察).”
“Adapted from the instruction for the spiritual exercises Esercizii spirituali di S. Ignazio ((Venice, 1711), a posthumous work by Carlambrogio Cattaneo, S.J. (1645-1705). The eight day retreat was transformed into a retreat of ten days...."
“The work remained (in) manuscript until 1893, when it was edited by Simon Kong 龔古愚, S.J. However, it seems to have circulated as a manuscript, probably from 1738 (or 1783) onwards and was given to ‘retreatants’ who came to a Jesuit residence for retreat.”--Source: Cf.
