Letter of Fr. Louis Lougen, OMI, Superior General for February 17, 2018 February 5th, 2018
L.J.C. et M.I.

It would contain norms to help all its members in the twofold objective that he had already outlined in broad terms to the vicars of Aix when, together with his first five companions, he had asked permission to live in community in the old Carmel of Aix, purchased by him for this purpose.
