Notwithstanding continued involvement in the Bourbon/Habsburg struggle in Europe, the papacy found its influence in secular affairs primarily confined to Italy. The papacy took steps to gain greater control over the rapidly expanding missions with the establishment of the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide in 1622 during the brief pontificate of Gregory XV (Alessandro Ludovisi). This new congregation was well funded and given oversight of the Catholic missions throughout the world. 31 After a long and controversial conclave, Maffeo Barberini became Pope Urban VIII (1623–1644).

One Capuchin in particular, Chérubin de Maurienne, was probably the most important preacher to the mission after François de Sales. Like so much associated with the efforts to revive Catholicism in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the Capuchins adapted and reinvigorated much from the medieval church rather than striking out in a new direction.
