Subject

CM petitions
France (missions in)
Petitions for faculties

Description

Petition filed on behalf of Vincent de Paul, requesting that he be granted unspecified "reformed faculties for France," with the capacity to transmit faculties to further members of CM, after having those individuals approved by theologians adjoined to CM, and especially by the nuncio to France. PF note on the back shows that the cardinals decided to write to the nuncio for more information on the progress of CM, and whether it would be useful to grant such faculties, especially since PF does not customarily grant them to superiors of societies or congregations; only to specific individuals, after careful consideration of their character and prudence.
