Subject

Petitions for faculties

Description

Petition on behalf of Jean Le Vacher in which he asks that his faculties include all the privileges that he held in the past. In 1652 he had been given the authority to give apostolic missionary faculties to priests who had not been approved by PF; PF secretary notes, however, stated that in all the faculties given to prefects and vicars apostolic, the clause was included that all faculties could only be transmitted to priests that are approved by PF. During their general meeting of 12th of April 1666, the cardinals decide to grant Le Vacher the requested faculties for three years, but he needs to communicate the names of the priests to whom he transmits his faculties, so that PF can approve them. A second request of Le Vacher regards the faculties to give a plenary indulgence to all those who will confess and receive Holy Communion in the days of Christmas, Easter, Pentecost and the Assumption of Mary. And also to those who are about to leave on the galleys, and an indulgence of ten years to those who will listen to the homilies of the vicar. This has to be asked to the pope.
