Description

Letter from PF to the vicar apostolic of Tunis [Jean Le Vacher]. The Dominican priest Silvestro Bandini was made a slave and brought to Tunis (when leaving Armenia). He reported the great need of priests in Tunis, and PF ask Le Vacher to grant him the faculties required to help the Christian slaves. Le Vacher is warned however, that if rumors of Bandini celebrating mass more than once a week are true, he should not be granted the faculties. PF states that Bandini should only be granted a faculty which describes precisely the time, place and functions; if Bandini abuses his faculties, then they should be revoked.
