Description

Report on the status and activities of CM. The congregation was founded in 1524 and approved in 1632, with Vincent de Paul as superior general. The congregation has 20 houses, of which 16 are located in France (in Lorraine and Savoy), and two in Italy (in Rome and Genoa). Other houses are located in Ireland, Madagascar, on the Barbary coast, and in the Hebrides. The report also notes that CM has three aims: a) the perfection of the spirit; b) the maintaining of spiritual health of others, especially the poor inhabitants of the countryside; and c) the education of the clergy.  
Additional comments
Written after 1648 (the Madagascar mission started in 1648 and all the other houses mentioned in this document were founded earlier).
