Rummaging through your day: a history of praying backwards with the Jesuits
Presenter: Burt Howell, Director, Intersections
Tuesday, March 29th - 10:30am to 12:00pm
Understanding the connection between one’s work and the Catholic and Jesuit tradition is important for many Boston College employees. During this informational and interactive session, Burt Howell shares the Jesuit practice of the daily examen and explores how and why it was developed and adapted by Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. Join Burt as he traces the history of this simple and powerful prayer. Conversation follows an explanation of what led St. Ignatius and the Jesuits to education and how the practice of the examen may apply to University employees as well.
