These allocutios "represent one spiritual director's meditative excursions through the handbook. By no means should they be considered official commentaries of the topics which caught his attention along the way. They are, however, sincere personal attempts to fathom the ideas and ideals of the Legion proposed by its founder, and to cast a brief but beneficial light upon the spirit and scheme of the Legion."
