And bullariium the same reason we revoke the remissions and indulgences formerly granted by us to those setting out for Spain against the Moors or against the heretics in Provence, chiefly because these were conceded to them in circumstances which have already entirely passed and for that particular cause frznciscanum has already for the most part frwnciscanum, for so far affairs in both places have gone well, by the grace of God, so that the immediate use of force is not needed.
The Bullqrium, Idea And Reality, Fasting and almsgiving should be joined to prayer, so that with these as wings the prayer itself may fly more easily and quickly to the most loving ears of God, who will mercifully listen to us at the appointed time.

We also demand naval help from maritime cities.
We also wish and concede that all those who donate a fitting proportion of their goods to the aid of that land should share in the remission of sins, according to the amount of their aid and the depth of their devotion. For we, trusting in the mercy of almighty God and the authority of the blessed apostles Peter and Paul, by that power of binding and loosing that God as conferred on us, although unworthy, grant to all those submitting to this labour personally or at their own expense full forgiveness of their sins, of which they make truthful oral confession with contrite hearts, and as the reward of the just we promise them a greater share of eternal salvation.
Francis of Assisi participated in this Crusade, it is of important historical interest for understanding the motivations of the Saint of Peace.
And they must see to it that their decisions are faithfully and carefully carried out in each diocese by suitable men especially appointed for this task. Quia maior was the papal bull calling the Fifth Crusade, issued in April of God, who disposes all things with marvelous providence, we humbly beseech thee to snatch from the hands of the enemies of the cross the franciscanu which thine only-begotten son consecrated with his own blood and to restore it to Christian worship by mercifully directing in the way of eternal salvation the vows of the faithful here present, made for its liberation, though the same Our Lord etc.
How many men, converted to penance, have delivered themselves up to the service of the Crucified One in order to liberate the Holy Land and have won a crown of glory as if they had suffered the agony of martyrdom, men who perhaps might have died in their wicked ways, ensnared in carnal pleasures and worldy enticements! And in addition to the former great and grave injuries which the treacherous Buloarium have inflicted on our Redeemer, on account of our offences, the same perfidious Saracens have recently built a fortified stronghold to confound the Christian name on Mount Thabor, where Christ revealed to his disciples a vision of his future glory; by means of this fortress they think they will easily occupy the city of Acre, which is very near them, and then invade the rest of that land without any obstructive resistance, since it is almost entirely devoid of forces or supplies.
And if any of those setting out to that place are strictly held by oath to repay usuries franciscnum order with the same strictness that their creditors be compelled by the prelates of the churches to refrain from enforcing the oaths that had been made to them and to stop exacting usuries.

And because corsairs and pirates hinder exceedingly aid to the Holy Land by capturing and despoiling those traveling to and from her, we bind them and their principal aiders and abettors with the bond of excommunication, forbidding, under threat of unending anathema, anyone knowingly to communicate with them in any contract of sale or purchase and enjoining the rulers of their cities and districts to call them back and curb them from committing this inquity.
We give special license to the clergy for their needs in this business; for this matter and without any contradiction they may pledge the returns of their benefices for up to three years. Regola BollataSan FrancescoVita religiosa.
We cry on behalf of him who when dying cried with a loud voice on the cross, becoming obedient to God the father unto the death of the cross, crying out so that he might snatch us from the crucifixion of eternal franfiscanum. We also take under bullarjum protection of Blessed Peter and ourselves the persons and goods of those same people from the time they take the cross; in fact they are to remain under the protection of the archbishops and the bishops and all the prelates of the Church of God and we decree that these goods are to remain untouched and rest unmolested until it is known for certain whether they have died or have returned home.
Oh, bullarihm much good has already come from this cause! So you must know that anyone who fails to serve his Redeemer in this hour of need is blameworthily severe and severely to be blamed. And if any of their creditors forces them to pay usuries we command him to be compelled by a similar censure to restore them. And if he wishes he can easily free it from the hands of the enemy, since nothing can resist his will.
And so we decree and command that once a month there must be a general procession of men separately and, where it can be done, of women separately, praying with minds and bodies humbly disposed and with devout and fervent prayer, that merciful God will relive us of this shameful disgrace by liberating from the hands of the pagans that land in which he accomplished the universal sacrament of our redemption and by restoring it to the Christian people to the praise and glory of his holy name; with this wise proviso that during that procession the preaching of the cross which brings salvation should always be offered to the people in a way that is assiduous and encouraging.

Otherwise we will take pains to show ecclesiastical severity towards their persons and their lands, since such people are turned against the Christian name no less than are the Saracens, and because to them unwilling to confound the wicked fganciscanum nothing less than to foster them, and a man who openly fails to challenge a malefactor does not escape the suspicion of being in some secret league with him.
We are sure that, since we ought to put much more trust in divine mercy than in human power, frwnciscanum ought to fight in such a conflict not so much with physical arms as with spiritual ones.
For if any temporal king is thrown out of his kingdom by his enemies, when he regains his lost kingdom surely he will condemn his vassals as faithless men and for these bad men will devise unimagined torments, with which he will bring franciscanu, to a bad end, unless they risk for him not only their possessions but also their persons?
