Responsio.
Nec attingit illos cruciatus.

Oremus. DOMINE DEUS, Resurrectio & Vita Credentium, qui semper es laudandus, tam in viventibus quam in defunctis, agimus tibi gratias, pro Fundatore nostro N. cæterisque Benefactoribus nostris, quorum beneficiis hic ad pietatem & studia literarum alimur: rogantes ut nos, his donis ad tuam gloriam recte utentes, una cum illis, ad resurrectionis gloriam immortalem perducamur: per Jesum Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Celebratio Cænæ Domini in Funebribus, si Amici &

vicini defuncti communicare velint.

Collecta. MISERICORS DEUS, pater Domini nostri Jesu Christi, qui es Resurrectio & vita, in quo qui credidit etiamsi mortuus fuerit, vivet; &, in quo qui crediderit & vivit non morietur in æternum : quique nos docuisti per sanctum Apostolum tuum Paulum, non debere mærere pro dormientibus in Christo, sicut ii qui spem non habent resurrectionis, humiliter petimus, ut nos a inorte peccati resuscites ad vitam justitiæ, ut cum ex hac vita emigramus, dormiamus cum Christo, quemadmodum speramus hunc fratrem nostrum, & in generali resurrectione, extremo die, nos una cum hoc fratre nostro resuscitati &, receptis corporibus, regnemus una tecum in vita æterna; per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum. Amen.

Epistola. I. Thess. 4. NOLQ vos ignorare fratres de his qui obdormierunt, ne doleatis quemadmodum & cæteri non habentes spem. Nam si credimus quod Jesus mortuus est & resurrexit, sic & Deus eos qui obdormierunt, per Jesum, adducet cum illo. Hoc enim vobis dicimus in verbo Domini quod nos qui vivimus, & reliqui erimus in adventum Domini, nequaquam præveniemus eos qui dormiunt. Quoniam ipse Dominus cum hortatu & voce Archangeli, ac tuba Dei descendet de Cælo : & mortui in Christo resurgent primum : deinde nos qui vivemus, qui reliqui erimus, simul cum illis rapiemur in nubibus in occursum Domini in

aere, & sic semper cum Domino erimus. Proinde consolemini vos mutuo sermonibus liis.

Evangelium Joan. 6. DIXIT Jesus Discipulis suis, & Turbis Judæorum. Omne quod dat mibi pater ad me veniet : & eum qui venit ad me, non ejicio foras. Quia descendi de Cælo, ut taciam non quod ego volo, sed quod vult is qui misit me. Hæc est autern voluntas ejus qui misit me, Patris, ne quid perdam ex omnibus quæ dedit mihi, sed resuscitem illa in novissimo die. Hæc est autem voluntas ejus qui misit me, ut omnis qui videt filium & credit in eum, habeat vitam æternam, & ego suscitabo eum iiovissimo die.

Vel hoc Evangelium. Joan. 5. . DIXIT Jesus discipulis suis & Turbis Judæorum: Amen, Amen dico vobis, qui sermonem meum audit, & credit ei qui misit me, habet vitam æternam, & in condemnationem non veniet, sed transivit a morte in vitam. Amen, Amen dico vobis, quòd veniet hora & nunc est, quando mortui audient vocem filii Dei: & qui audierint, vivent. Sicut enim pater habet vitain in semetipso, sic dedit & filio habere vitam in semetipso : & potestatem dedit ei judicandi quoque, quia Filius hominis. Nolite mirari hoc : quia veniet hora, in qua omnes qui in njonumentis sunt, audient vocem ejus, & prodibunt, qui bona fecerunt in resurrectionem vitæ : qui vero mala egerunt, in resurrectioneni condemnationis.

THE PRÉFACE.

TT is evident unto all men, diligently reading holy Scripture, and

aucie nt Authors, that from the Apostles time there hath been these Orclers of Ministers in Christs Church, Bishops, Priests and Deacons · which Offices were evermore had in such reverent estimation, that no man by his own private authority might presume to execute arıy of them, except he were first called, tried, examined and known to have such qualities, as were requisite for the same, and also by publick prayer, with imposition of hand, approved and admitted thereunto. And therefore, to the intent these Orders should be continued, and reverently used and esteemed in this Church of England, it is requisite that no man (not being at this present Bishop, Priest mor Deacon) shall execute any of them, except he be called, tried, examined, and admitted, according to the form hereafter following. And none shall be admitted a Deacon, except he be twenty one years of age, at the least. And every man vvhich is to be admitted a Priest, shall be full four and twenty years old .And every man which is to be consecrated a Bishop, shall be fully thirty years of age. And the Bishop knowing either by himself, or by sufficient testimony, any person to be a man of vertuous conversation, and without crime, and after examination and trial finding 1 vim learned in the Latine Tongue and sufficiently instructed in holy Scripture, may upon a Sunday or Holy-day, in the face of the Church, admit him a Deacon in such manner and form as hereafter follow eth.

THE

FORM AND MANNER OF ORDERING

DEACONS.

DIrst, When the day appointed by the Bishop is come, there shall be an ExT hortation, declaring the duty and office of such as come to be admitted Ministers, how necessary such orders are in the Church of Christ, and also

After the Exhortation ended, the Archdeacon or his Deputy shall present such as shall come to the Bishop to be admitted, saying these words: REverend Father in God, I present unto you these persons present to be admitted Deacons.

The Bishop. m ake heed that the persons whom ye present unto us, be apt and

1 meet for their Learning and godly conversation, to exercise their Ministry duly, to the honour of God, and edifying of his Church.

The Archdeacon shall answer. Have enquired of them, and also examined them, and think them so to be.

And the Bishop shall say unto the people, B Rethren, if there be any of you who knoweth any impediment or

notable crime in any of these persons presented to be ordered Deacons, for the which he ought not to be admitted to the same, let him come forth in the Name of God, and shew what the crime or impediment is. And if any great crime or impediment be objected, the Bishop shall surcease

from Ordering that person, until such time as the party accused shall try himselflea r of that crime. Then the Bishop commending such as shall be found meet to be Ordered to the Prayers of the Congregation, with the Clerks and people present, shall say or sing the Litany, as followeth, with the prayers.
