Mercure Galant: Consecration of Messire Delfino

Esteemed Readers, I have discovered another interesting note in the Mercure Galant proving the strong interconnection between France & Italy. This time it tells about an important Catholic event: a Venetian nobleman becomes the Archbishop right in France.

“On Sunday 29 of the month of January (1696) Messire Marc-Daniel Delfino, a Nobleman from Venice, Vicelegat of Avignon appointed by the Nunciature of France, was consecrated as the Archbishop de Damas in Partibus Infidelium (in foreign lands) in the Jesuit Church of Avignon by Messire Louis-Aube de Roque-Martine, the Bishop & Count de Saint Paul-Trois-Chasteaux with assistance of Mrs Archbishops d’Orange & de Carpents. 

The ceremony was extremely solemn on one hand due to the presence of plenty of the noblest persons of the Province, on the other due to an excellent Music & Symphonie performed with numerous Instruments. Then the new Nuncio treated Bishops, Consuls, Legal Officers & the most distinguished people of the City to dinner.”

Vive le Roy! 🙂

    Bonjour Mon AMIE
    Comment trouver le bonheur

    Ne le cherche pas le bonheur dans tes souvenirs
    Cela te ferait beaucoup plus de mal
    Tu retrouverais les bons ainsi que les mauvais
    Si tu veux trouver le bonheur
    Cherche le dans le présent
    C’est seulement là qu’ il t’attend et là tu éviteras ceux qui peuvent te faire du mal
    Alors vit ton bonheur dans ce présent
    Belle semaine à toi , tes proches tes amies
    Pour toi une partie de mon bonheur
    Bisous Bernard
