Last April, the Society of Catholic Social Scientists bestowed a posthumous award upon Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., the late Laurence J. McGinley Professor of Religion and Society, for his contributions in examining the shifting role of faith in American society.

On Thursday, Oct. 15, Society representative Monsignor Robert Batule presented the award to Patrick Ryan, S.J., the new McGinley Chair at Fordham, who accepted it on behalf of the University.

“By his lucid thinking, clear writing and thoughtful speech, Avery Dulles sought always to build up Christ’s body, never reducing its magnificence,” said Monsignor Batule in a tribute to the cardinal’s evenhanded brand of theology. “[He] remained productive to the end.”
