Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 3 February 1656 in the presence of the pope, discussing among other issues, a request by Jean Le Vacher. He asks to be given the faculties to consecrate chalices and alter stones, and to bless priestly vestments. The cardinals state that they see no objection, and that it would be useful to give him these faculties since there is no bishop in the area. They also note that it is difficult to transport these goods, due to the danger of them falling into the hands of the Turks. The pope agrees, and orders to send the request to the Holy Office.
