Peer comments on this reference comment (and responses from the reference poster)
agree  Gaetano Silvestri Campagnano: Esatto. Qui la definizione corretta è la n. 2. Infatti, la n. 1 riguarda solitamente la casa generalizia di una congregazione (che in genere si trova a Roma) o la casa provincializia (di circoscrizione), che raramente coincidono con la casa madre.
