Jesuit Cardinal Navarette dead at 90

Catholic World News - November 22, 2010

Cardinal Urbino Navarette Cortes, the former rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University, died on November 22 at the age of 90.

A native of Spain, the future cardinal entered the Jesuit order in 1937 and was ordained in 1952. He went on to study canon law, and became an expert in that field, heading the canon-law faculty at the Gregorian University until he was appointed rector in 1980. He was raised to the College of Cardinals by Pope Benedict XVI in 2007 in recognition for his service to the Church.
