Bp. Thus fhall every man be bleffed that feareth the Lord.
AY the Lord bless you from out of Sion, that you may fee the profperity of Je rufalem all the days of your life, and live for ever.
Of the SACRAMENT of PENNANCE.
The Penitent having carefully examined his confcience, and excited in his foul a true forrow for his fins, with a firm purpofe of avoiding them, and whatever occafion may lead to them for the future, kneeling down by the fide of the Priest, fays:
RAY to God for me, Father, for I am a finner.
Then the Priest fays the following prayer by way of a blefing:
AY the Lord be in thy heart and on thy lips,
that thou mayft make an humble and entire confeffion of all thy fins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. R. Amen.
The Penitent then having faid the Confiteor, as p. xii. acquaints his Confessor with his state of life, (if he be unknown to him) mentions when he was last at Confeffion, and if he has performed the pennance enjoined him:He then, with great humility and forrow, accufes himself of all the mortal fins at least, which he can call to mind, using no difguife, nor omit
ting any circumftance that may either alter the nature, or confiderably aggravate the circumftance of any fin. Having mentioned what he can call to mind, he concludes thus:
For thefe, and whatever other fins I have committed in my whole life, or cannot at prefent call to mind, I am heartily forry for the love of God above all things, I purpose amendment, and beg pardon of almighty God, and pennance of you my ghoftly Father.
Then the Prieft having given proper admonitions, and enjoined a falutary pennance, if the Penitent be July difpofed for abfolution, he fays:
May almighty God have mercy on thee, forgive thee thy fins, and bring thee to life everlasting. R. Amen.
Then, fretching forth his right hand towards the Penitent, he fays:
May the Lord, who is almighty and merciful, grant thee pardon, abfolution, and remiffion of all thy fins. R. Amen.
May our Lord Jesus Christ himself abfolve thee, as I, by his authority, now abfolve thee from every bond of excommunication, and interdict, as far as I am empowered, or thou ftandeft in need. Moreover I abfolve thee from all thy fins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghoft. R. Amen.
May the Paffion of our Lord Jefus Chrift, the merits of the blefied Virgin Mary, and of all the Saints; whatever good thou mayft do, or whatever evil thou mayft fuffer, avail to the remiffion of thy fins, an increase of grace, and the rewards of eternal life. R. Amen.
After the bans have been published three several Holidays or Sundays, and no impediment is difcovered; the Prieft, in the prefence of three, or two witnesses at least, queftioneth the parties (who ought to be accompanied by their parents, or relations) concerning their confent to enter with one another into the married ftate, and firft he says to the bridegroom :
Pr. N. Are you willing to take N. here present for your lawful wife, according to the rites of our holy mother the Church? A. I am willing.
Then he fays to the Bride:
Pr. N. Are you willing to take N. here present for your lawful hufband, according to the rites of our holy mother the Church? A. I am willing.
Then the Bride is given away by her Father, or fome Friend; and if he was never married before, The hath her gloves off: if a widow, fhe keeps them The Bridegroom takes her right hand in his right hand, and thus engages himself to her, faying:
Bridegroom. I N. take thee N. to my wedded wife, to have, and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in ficknefs and in health, till death do us part, if holy Church will permit it: and thereto I plight thee my troth.
Then they part hands, and join them again. Bride. I N. take thee N. to my wedded hufband, to have, &c. as above.
Pr. I JOIN YOU IN WEDLOCK, IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF TILE HOLY GHOSт. Amen.
Then the Bridegroom lays fome gold and filver and the ring on the book.
The Bleffing of the Ring. V. Our help is in the name of the Lord. R. Who made both heaven and earth. V. O Lord, hear my prayer. R. And let my cry come unto thee. V. May the Lord be with you. And with thy fpirit.
V.. Adjutorium noftrum in nomine Domini. R. Qui fecit cœlum & terram. V. Domine, exaudi orationem meam. R. Et clamor meus ad te veniat. V. Dominus vobifcum. R. Et cum fpi
Let us pray. Benedic.
Lefs, O Lord, this ring, which we bless in thy
end who is to wear
preferving an inviolable fidelity to her husband, may remain in thy peace and good-will, and live always in mutual love with him. Thro' Christ our Lord. R. Amen.
Then the Bridegroom taking the ring from the Prieft, and holding the right hand of the Bride in his left hand, fays:
Bridegroom. With this Ring I thee wed, this gold and filver I thee give, and with my body I thee worship, and with all my worldly goods I thee endow.
Then putting the Ring on the Bride's thumb, he fays In the name of the Father. Then he puts it on the forefinger, faying: And of the Son. Then on the middle finger, faying: And of the Holy Ghost. Then on the next finger, faying: Amen. And there he leaves it on.
V. Ratify, O Lord, what thou haft performed by our miniftry. R. From thy holy temple,
