Description

PF summary of SOCG 317, 66r-v and SOCG 317, 67r [1658], reporting that several slave priests in Tunis have accused the apostolic vicar Jean Le Vacher, of abusing his office for self-enrichment. The superior of CM [in Rome, Edme Jolly] says that, on the contrary, Le Vacher is a most pious man who has done much for the conversion of heretics, and the consolation of the poor. CM affirms that his authority should be strengthened to prevent the problems that existed before his arrival, namely that certain priests were selling sacraments. The summary is undated and unsigned.
