THE ORDER FOR TAE
Or, HOLY COMMUNION.
If among inose who come to be partakers of the Holy Communion, the Minister shall know any to be an open and notorious evil liver, or to have done any wrong to his neighbours by word or deed, so that the Congregation be thereby offended: he shaul advertise him, that he presume not to come to the Lori's Table, umul he have openly declared himself to have truly repented and amended his
former evil life, that the Congregation may thereby be satisfied; and that he hath recompensed the parties to whom he hath done wrong; or at least declare himself to be in full purpose so to do, as soon as he conveniently may. The same order shall the Minister use with those, betwixt whom he perceiveth malice and hatred to reign; not suffering them to be partakers of the Lord's Table, until he know them to be reconciled. And if one of the parties, so at vari. ance, be content to forgive from the bottom of his beart all that the other hath trespassed against him, and to make amends for that wherein he himself hath of fended; and the other party will not be persuaded to a godly unity, but remain, still in his frowardness and malice; the Minister in that case ought to admit the penitent person to the Holy Communior, and not him that is obstinate: Provided, that every Minister so repelling any, as is herein specified, shall be obliged to
give an account of the same to the Ordinary, as soon as conveniently may be. * The Table, at the Communion time, having a fair white linen cloth upon it,
shall stand in the body of the Church, or in the Chancel; and the Minister standing at the north side of the table, or where Morning and Evening Prayer are appointed to be said, shall say the Lord's Prayer and the Collect following, the people kneeling; but the Lord's Prayer may be omitted, if Morning Prayer bath been said immediately before.
