CWN Editor's Note: The Catholic University of America has withdrawn an honorary degree that was conferred on then-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick in 2006. The action—unprecedented for Catholic University—was taken by the executive committee of the school’s trustees. McCarrick had long been a major factor in the life of Catholic University: as a student, chaplain, dean, director of development, trustee, and chancellor.
