Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 8 April 1680 discussing among other issues, a report from Alexander Winster, the prefect of the Scottish mission. He writes that, since Francis White died, the Catholics in the Highlands have been suffering. He asks that PF send an Irish priest (or that he invite one himself), to whom PF can give the needed faculties. Also discussed, is that Alexander Lesley returned from the Highlands gravely ill, and will probably have to leave Scotland; its noted that two other priests have also fallen ill. The prefect moreover asks that PF send David Burnet to the mission. He also requests faculties and some vestments for mass. The cardinals decide: 1) to leave the issue of the vestments to the judgment of the secretary; 2) to ask the internuncio to France whether Burnet is suitable for the mission; 3) to send the provisions in advance; and 4) to refer the issue of the faculties to Cardinal Norfolk.
