Cardinal Cordes to lecture at Maryvale

Next week, Maryvale Institute will be hosting a lecture on Pope Benedict's encyclical Deus Caritas Est by His Eminence Paul Josef Cardinal Cordes, the President of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum. (Cardinal Cordes was created cardinal at the consistory in November. The photo shows him last summer visiting his native Paderborn.) The lecture will look at the most appropriate and concrete ways of following the guidelines of the Holy Father’s meditation on love.

The objectives of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum are:
  • To assist the Pope and be his instrument for carrying out special initiatives in the field of humanitarian actions when disasters occur, or in the field of integral human promotion;
  • To foster the catechesis of Charity and encourage the faithful to give a concrete witness to evangelical charity;
  • To encourage and coordinate the initiatives of Catholic Organizations through the exchange of information and by promoting fraternal cooperation in favour of integral human development.
The lecture will be next Tuesday 8th April at 2.30pm. Light refreshments will be available from 1pm and after the lecture.

If you would like to attend, you are asked to reserve seates in advance. Contact Maryvale, referring to “Cardinal Cordes’ Lecture”:
