Description

Letter from Cardinal Grimaldi (nuncio to France, preparing to end his mandate) regarding the Fathers of the Oratory, who had requested to be recognized as a mission. Grimaldi writes that their main goal is to instruct the "idiots" and not so much to convert heretics (according to the Fathers themselves), which does not qualify their organization as a mission that needs the approval of PF, especially since they have all the necessary support from the local bishops.
