Apostolicum Pascendi Munus





A Bull issued by Clement XIII, 12 January, 1765, in defense of the Society of Jesus against the attacks made upon it. It relates that both privately and publicly the Society was the object of much calumny. On the other hand, the Society was the subject of praise on the part of bishops for the useful work its members were doing in their dioceses. To confirm this approval and to counteract the calumnies which had been spreading throughout different countries, the Pope confirms the Society as it was originally constituted, approves its end, it method of work, and whatever sodalities its members have under their charge.

Bullarium Romanum (continuatio), III, 38 sqq.; Ravignan, Clement XIII et Clement XIV (Paris, 1854); The Jesuits, their foundation and History (London, 1879), II, 21012; De Villecourt, Vie de Saint Ligouri, II, 179, 180.
