Council of Avranches
FREE Catholic Classes
In 1172 (September 27-28) a Council was held at Avranches in France, apropos of the troubles caused in the English Church by the murder of St. Thomas Becket . Henry II, King of England, after due penance, was absolved from the censures incurred by the assassination of the holy prelate and swore fidelity to Alexander III in the person of his legate. It was forbidden to confer on children benefice that carry with him the cure of souls, or the children of priests the churches of their fathers. Each parish was required to have an assistant ( vicarius ) and the Advent fast was commended to all who could observe it, especially to ecclesiastics.
