Chapter Summary

John Bede Polding had first come before the attention of the Congregation 15 years before, in 1829, when it was looking for an appointment to the Vicariate Apostolic of Mauritius. A vital component of Polding's thinking was the establishment, as soon as possible, of a seminary in Sydney to make up for any shortfall in recruiting from the British Isles. From the perspective of Polding's great project, the most significant of Ullathorne's achievements was to obtain from the Propaganda Fide Congregation in June 1837 a rescript permitting the foundation of a monastery in Sydney. Polding had won a great triumph. His correspondence from Rome in the early months of 1842 radiates a happy, even skittish, mood.
