Tunis
Slave priests

Renegades

Description

Letter from Julien Guérin to PF: a) requesting the faculty to grant a marriage dispensation to a couple who had formerly renegated the Christian faith but currently live like Christians, so that they could legitimize their children; b) relating about other converts as well as certain Turks who live like Christians; and c) decrying the scandal caused by slave priests who celebrate mass twice and sometimes thrice a day for the love of money. Regarding the last point, Guérin asks that all those who celebrate mass twice or thrice a day be excommunicated, as it causes him much grief. PF decided to forward all three issues to the pope.
