Description

Minutes of PF general congregation of 22 July 1671 discussing among other issues, the Trinitarians and Mercedarians who work in Algiers without a license from the apostolic vicar, Jean Le Vacher. PF secretary [Federico Baldeschi] contacted the two procurator generals of these orders; one responded stating that he did not know anything about such practices among the members of his order. Recently a new Father, Bartolomeo Da Serrano, has been sent to Algiers to work in the hospital. This is a problem, as he does not obey the authority of the vicar apostolic, and administers the sacraments without any legitimate base. Alfonso Velarde (the procurator general of the Mercedarians), insisted that the members of his order do not travel to Tunis, but only to Algiers, Tétouan and Maroc.  They do not administer the sacraments in these places, even though they would have the power to do so. The procurator general of the Trinitarians, Domenico Jafurt, said that they received permission to administer the sacraments, and he sent a letter to the provincial superior in Castile for more information. PF decides that the secretary and (probably Cardinal Orsini) should decide to whom they should give the faculties, in accordance with the law.
