I have enlightened you on the first of these points in my former letter and shall now speak of the second. InPascal's friend, the Chevelier de Mere, had asked him to analyze a problem arising from a game of chance.

    Paul, explained by St. In the Seventeenth LetterPascal took again the problem of the efficacious grace and of the "de facto vs de juris" debate concerning the inclusion, or not, of the 5 Propositions condemned by the Pope in the Cum Occasione papal bull, in Jansenius 's work see Formulary controversy for details.

Look for no more support, then, father, from the prince of philosophers, and no longer oppose yourselves to the prince of theologians, who has thus decided the point in the first book of his Retractations, chapter xv: 'Those who sin through ignorance, though they sin without meaning to sin, commit the deed only because they will commit it.
