Vatican Cardinal Receives Honorary Degree from Seton Hall  

On November 7, 2008, Seton Hall University awarded a Doctorate of Human Letters, honoris causa to Cardinal Paul Josef Cordes, President of the Pontifical Council "Cor Unum", the Dicastery of the Holy See responsible for promoting the charitable activities of the Church.

Cardinal Cordes then delivered an address titled To Defeat Evil - Possible? In his talk His Eminence cited St. Paul to identify the cause of evil in the world as godlessness, an interior denial of God, Who is Love. Using Pope Benedict XVI's 2005 encyclical Deus est Caritas, the Cardinal stated that the ultimate key to overcoming evil and sin today is God.
