Description

Petition on behalf of Jean Le Vacher, vicar apostolic in Tunis, to PF. He asks for three things: a) a new decree that clearly states that all members of religious orders (whether free or slaves), fall under his authority, and that he recieves the faculties to punish them with ecclesiastical censures if they refuse to obey; b) that all ceremonies other than the ones prescribed in the Roman liturgy be forbidden; and c) that he can grant other priest's the faculty of reading mass one hour before dawn, and one hour after midday, so that the many slaves who have to work from the break of day onwards, can attend mass. PF agrees to the first and third point, and order that nothing be changed with respect to the second.
