German Cardinal Paul Josef Cordes turned 80 years old today, reducing the number of cardinal electors to 114.

The cardinal is the president emeritus of the Pontifical Council "Cor Unum” 

He was created a cardinal by Benedict XVI on November 24, 2007 and participated in the Conclave that elected Pope Francis.
