Ateneo Physics professor Fr. Daniel J. McNamara, S.J. at the Second Fr. Miguel A. Bernad Memorial Lecture in Xavier University: “Faith, Science and Religion”

from the Xavier University website:

A second memorial lecture in honor of Fr Miguel A Bernad, S.J took place at the Xavier University Little Theater on January 25, celebrated along with the 400th anniversary of Fr Matteo Ricci, SJ

The event started off with the launching of the Fr Miguel Bernad Memorabilia Collection held at the 5th Floor of the XU Library. The ribbon cutting was done by the guest speakers Fr Daniel J. McNamara, SJ and Professor Emmanuel Luis Romanillos, assisted by XU President Fr Jose Ramon “Jett” Villarin, SJ and the South East Asia Rural Social Leadership Institute former director and former dean of the College of Agriculture Dr Anselmo B Mercado.

True enough, Fr. McNamara’s lecture titled “Faith, Science and Religion” dealt with Physics, Mathematics and theological reflections on Science and Theology. Wit and humor made the lecture a fun, learning experience. Fr. McNamara shared that every time he asks the ladies what first comes to their minds when they hear the word cosmology, women almost always answer cosmetics. He related in his modulated voice that cosmos means order and, in a way, cosmetic could be a right answer because women use it to find “order that is not there in nature.”
