Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 27 May 1659 discussing among other issues, the case of some secular priests called "I preti della Dottrina Christiana" [the priests of the Christian doctrine]. They would like to receive missionary faculties in order to use them in "heretical areas," when invited by the bishops to teach the doctrine. The nuncio asked for information about their willingness to subordinate themselves to PF, and states that he had talked about this with Vincent de Paul, who has no objection against giving them these faculties; Vincent de Paul believes they are good priests who seem willing to subordinate themselves to PF, and to work in places where they are much needed. The nuncio adds that if PF decides to consent to the request, the cardinals should send him the faculties, so that he can first have the priests declare their loyalty, before giving them the faculties. The cardinals decided to not send general missionary faculties, nor the kind used for religious orders.
