Oblation at Notre Dame de l’Osier, August 15, 1845 (no. 141)
Expelled from the Congregation, September 23, 1848.

François Muraglia was born at Bordighera, in the diocese of Ventimiglia, on August 20, 1825. He entered the novitiate on August 14, 1844 and made his oblation August 15, 1845. He was studying theology with the scholastic brothers at the major seminary of Marseilles when he sought to engage a confrere in an act contra sextum , an action which he subsequently “brazenly” denied. At the General Council session of September 23, 1848, the members of the council “unanimously decided to cut off from the body of the Congregation a person guilty of this fault. Consequently, the sentence of expulsion was pronounced… with all of the ordinary consequences.”
