Talk on Ignatian Spirituality and Engineering

The Jesuits of Malaysia-Singapore present "Technology, Imagination and Ignatian Spirituality", the third talk in our "Finding God in All Things" series.

We have invited Fr. Philip Chmielewski, SJ, professor and Sir Thomas More Chair at the Frank R. Seaver College of Engineering, Loyola Marymount University to answer the question, "What has engineering got to do with spirituality?" Indeed, how is a discipline that is considered so "material" related to matters of the spirit?

This talk will interest those who are involved in the technological disciplines and wish to learn more about Ignatian spirituality. Come even if you are just curious!


Brief synopsis:

Engineers are professionals who deploy specific knowledge, particular questions, and a special intelligence in service to society. Engineering pursues the safety, health, and welfare of the public.

The structure and dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises by Ignatius Loyola can aid working individuals toward imagining and guiding their professional engineering in the service of the public.Likewise, engineering perspectives and practices can contribute to a better appreciation and fuller grasp of the activities of attention and engagement found in the Spiritual Exercises.
