The preludes open the door to the mystery; the points that follow are
like dwelling there. The points are a heightening and intensifying of the
spiritual experience, which is the heart of the history and the composition.
In the preludes, the retreatant makes himself present to the mystery and
makes himself familiar with its contents in al its aspects. The points
contain a clear invitation to continue living the new reality of the mystery
and to keep on watching, because it is inexhaustible. Each point is meant
to plunge us deeper into the mystery.
