Chapter Summary

This chapter is a philosophical reflection on how the age of technology shapes the ways man sees and relates to the sacred, in the context of man's quest for meaning. The discussion is pursued by engaging with concrete examples, firstly, the El Shaddai Catholic Charismatic Movement as depicted in Katharine Wiegele's analysis in her book Investing in Miracles: El Shaddai and the Transformation of Popular Catholicism in the Philippines; and secondly, through my interview with Geoffrey Guevara, an El Shaddai attendee and philosophy instructor. The chapter begins with a survey of the relationship between man and the sacred before the age of technology, through Mircea Eliade's conception of sacred reality and Rudolf Otto's conception of the numinous aspect of the holy.

Keywords: age of technology; God; Mircea Eliade
