The pope now motu proprio rehabilitates him, who is of noble birth, grants that the said presentation and institution and their consequences hold good, as if at the time thereof he had been sufficiently dispensed to receive and retain the said church notwithstanding the said defect of age, and dispenses him, even if he be not yet of lawful age, to retain the same and to receive and retain with it for life any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if another parish church or its perpetual vicarage or, without the said church, any two benefices with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if parish churches or perpetual vicarages or dignities etc., or such mixed, and resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, and moreover not to be bound, till he attains his twentyfifth year, to be promoted to any holy orders on account of the said church or the said other benefices.
