Firji SUNDAY in LENT^ 

Firjl SUNDAY in LENT. 


■^INCE, according to th€ council of l^rent^ the whole^ 
5 life of a Chriftian ought to be a continual pennance^ 
e ought to embrace with fervour that, at leaft, which is 
refcribed during the time of Lent^ by falling with all thft 
laftnefs the Church requires of fuch, as are not incapable 
lereof thro' age, infirmity, or other lawful excufe. To 
aimate ourfelves the more to this, we ought often to call 
) mind the univerfal pradice of our pious anceftors in the 
lith of Ckriflf (and which fubfiflcd near twelve hundred 
ears) of taking only one meal a day during the time of 
/»/, and that not till after E'uemng-fong^yi\i\Q\i was always 
lid towards the evening. 

We muH carefully avoid feeking to plcafe our taile in 
le choice and feafoning of fuch meats as are allowed in 
snt ; for to do that, according to the holy Fathers, would 
e only changing dainties, and not retrenching them : It 
rould be nouriftiing fcnfiiality inftead of extinguifhing 
: : And it may be faid, that it would not be fatisfying the 
bligaiion of Lentj as it would be no longer mortifying 
le body, or doing pcnnance. 

This firft fall regards only thofe, who have attained to 
certain age of life, and who can go thorough with it, 
rithout prejudice of their health. But there is another 
ift, from which no one is exempt, and which admits of 
o difpenfation. This confilb in avoiding, with a parti- 
ular care, whatever may lead to fin. It is for tWs great 
nd important end, that we muft drive againft our bad 
abits with fre(h zeal : We mull mortify ourfelves, and 
e temperate in every thing, by retrenching from ouror- 
inary converfation, fleep. and moll innocent divcrfions, 
lat \vc may be able to fpend more time in prayer, rc- 
rcmcnt, and the cxcrcifcs of a£ts of charity. 

Such are the intentions, fuch the defires of the Catho- 
ck Church. Can there therefore be a greater abfurdity 
lan to hear Qhx]Xnm ta)king in c/ie/r publick prayers of 

20 Firjl SUNDAY 

macerating their bodies, o^ Jighing zn^ groaningyxvAtx tfic"^ 
weight of their fins, of being terrified with the judgments 
of God, while they content themfelves with complying . 
outwardly (and that too often very imperfeSiiy) with the 
ceremony of a bodily fall; notwithftanding there is the 
fame mirth, jollity, good cheer, diverfions, and recreations ' 
going on, as in other parts of the year. This is not the ' 
fail the Lord hath chofen, as appears from the exprefo 
declaration of God himfelf Jn the Lejfon of Ajh-Wed- 
ftefday^ and that of Friday before the firft Sunday in Lent. 

In order therefore not only to ufe the language of the ■ 
ChiKch, but likewife to follow it*s fpirit and diredlions, 
we muft join to our fading, prayer, retirement, and the ' 
avoiding whatever leads to fin, the virtues of continency 
and alms-deeds, which were formerly looked on as infe- 
parable from Lenty and other fafts. We frequently beg '' 
the grace of continency in the publick prayers of the ' 
Church during that holy time, and the pradice of it was 
formerly impofcd as a precept. With regard to alms, the 
holy Fathers look on them fo ncceiTary, that they fay 
our fafts will avail nothing without them ; and the defigu 
of the church is, and the practice from the moft early 
times was, that we fhould live fo in Lent and other Fajt^ 
ing'days, as to be able to retrench confiderably from the ' 
cxpences of our tables, in order to beftow, what was fo • 
retrenched, on the poor. 

Thofe that are entangled in any habitual mortal fin, can ' 
do notliing better for their falvation, or more agreeable to 
the fpirit of the Church, than to approach the facrament ' 
of pennance at the beginning of Ltiit ; that after having

Jefus faid to him: It is agam written: Thou fhalt

Jefus faith to him : Rife, take up thy bed, and 
walk. And forthwith the man was made whole, 
and took up his bed and walked. And that day 
was the Sabbath, The Jews therefore faid to him 
that was cured: It is the Sabbath-day \ it is not 
therefore lawful iSt thee to carry thy bed. He an-

Take up thy bed and walk. Then they aflced him : 
Who is that man, that faid to thee : Take up thy

JN tbofi days : The word of the Lord came to 
^ Elias the Thejbite^ faying : Arife, go to Sarepb*

tie faid : Give me a little water in a veflfel to drink. 
And as (he went to fetch it, he called after her, 
faying : Bring me likewife, I pray thee, a morfel 
of bread in thy hand. And (he anfwered : As the 
Lord thy God liveth, I have no bread, but only a 
handful of meal in a ve(rel, and a little oil in a pot : 
and behold I am gathering two (licks, that I may 
go home, and drefs it for me and my fon, that we 
may eat it, and die. Elias faid to her : Fear not, 
but go and do what thou haft faid : but iirft make 
for JDC of that little meal a fmall cake on the em- 
bers, and bring it to me : and afterwards thou (halt 
make feme for thy felf and thy fon. For thus (aith

LESSON. Dan, xiii. i, 62. 

/jV tbtfi days: There was a man dwelt in 5^- 
/r;/9;i, whofe name was Joachim : and he mar* 
.ried a woman called Sufannaj the .daughter of 
Hildas^ very beautiful and fearing God. For her 
parents being righteous, had brought up their 
daughter according to the law of Mofes. Now 
Jdochijn was very rich, and he had an orchard ad- 
joining to his houfe: and the ^Jews reibrted to him, 
becauie he was of great efteem among them. In 
that year two Elders were appointed judges over 
the people, concerning whom the Lord had faid : 
Iniquity is come out of BabyUn from the Elders 
the Judges, who feemed to govern <hc people. 
Thefe men frequented Joachim's houfe ; and all, 
who had any bufmefs to be decided, came to them. 
And when the people were gone, about noon ; 
Sufanna went and walked about in her hu{baiKl*8 
orchard. And the Elders faw her go and walk 
there every day : and they burnt with luft after her ; 
and they perverted their underftanding, and turned 
away their eyes, that they might not fee heaven, 
nor remember righteous judgments. And it came 
to pafs, that, when they had pitched on a fit day, 
(he went in, as ihe had done yefterday and the day 
before, only with two maids, and had a mind to 
bathe in the orchard, for the weather was hot. And 
no body was there but the two Elders, who lay 
hid, and beheld her. Then fhe faid to the maids: 
Fetch me the oil and wafliballs, and (hut the 
orchard doors, that I may bathe. And when the 
maids were gone ou(«, the two Elders arofe, and 
running to her, faid : Behold the orchard-doors are 
ihut, and no body feeth us, and we are in love with 
thee ; therefore yield to us, and lye with us. And 
if thou wilt not, we will bear witnefs againfl: thee, 
that there was a young man with thee, and there- 
fore thou fendedft away thy maids. Sufanna fighed^ 
and faid ; I am diftreflcd on every fide ; for k I do

thisy I die : and if I do it not, I fhall not efcape 
your hands. But it is better for me without fin to 
fall into your hands, than to offend in the fight of 
God. And Sufanna cried out with a loud voice ; 
and the Elders alfo cried out againft her : and one 
ran to the orchard-door and opened it. And when 
the iervants of the houfe heard the noife in the 
orchard, they made hafte through a back-door to 
fee what was the matter. But when the Elders 
had told, the fervants were afhamed very much, 
becaufe never any fuch thing had been faid of Su-' 
fanna. And the next day, when the people came 
to Joachim her hufband, the two Elders alfo came 
full of malice againft Sufanna^ refolving to put her 
to death. And they faid before the people : Send 
for Sufanna the daughter of HelciaSy Joachim's 
wife. And they forthwith fent for her. And (he 
came with her parents and children and all her re- 
lations. And her friends wept, and all that knew 
her. Then the two Elders riflng up in the midft 
of the people, put their hands upon her head : 
and {he weeping lifted up her eyes to heaven, for 
her heart trufted in God. And the Elders faid : 
As we two were walking alone in the orchard, 
this woman came in with two maids : and (hutting 
the orchard-door, (he fent the maids away. And 
a young man, who was hid, came to her, and 
lay with her. But we being in the corner of the 
orchard, and beholding the wickednefs, ran to 
them, and faw them lye together. But we could 
not hold the young man, becaufe he was tooftrong 
for us ; but openiDg the doors, he made his efcape. 
But when we had laid hold of this woman, we 
a(ked her, who the young man was ; but (he would 
not tell us : of all this we are witneiTes. The mul- 
titude gave credit to them, as to Elders and Judges 
of the people, and condemned her to death. Then 
Sufanna cried out with a loud voice, and faid : O 
Eternal God, who JcnoweA what is hidden^ nvW

And as fhe was led to execution, the Lord r< 
up the holy fpirit of a youth whole name was

faid ? Who ftanding in the midft of them, i 
Are you fo foolifh, you children of Ifrael^ \ 
without judging aright^ or difcovering the tf 
you have condemned a daughter of Ifrael ? Re 
back to judgment, for they have borne falfe

hafte. And Daniel faid to them : Separate t 
onefrom another, and I will examine them, 
when they were feparated from one another 
called one of them, and faid to him : O thou 
art grown old in wickednefs, thy tins are

bath faid thou fiialt not put to death the inno<

ho\i^ they might, by ftratagem, apprehend Jefus^ 
and put him to death. But they (aid : a. hfot on 
the feftival-day, left perhaps there fliould happen a 
tumult among the people. C. And when Jefus 
was in Betbania^ in the houfe of Simon the leper^ 
there came to him a woman having an alabafter- 
box of precious ointment, and (he poured it out 
upon his head, as he was at table. And the dif- 
ciples feeing it^ were angry, faying : S. To what 
purpofe is this wafte i For it mieht have been fold 
at a good price, and given to the poor. C. But 
Jefus knowing this, faid to them : f Why difturb 
you this woman i For (he hath performed a good 
work towards me. For the poor you have always 
with you, but me you have not always. For this 
woman, in pouring ointment on my body, has done 
It for my burial. Amen I fay to you, that where- 
foever this gofpel (hall be preached in the whole 
world, it (hall likewife be told, what this woman 
hath done, in remembrance of her. C. Then one 
of the twelve, called Judas the Ifcarioty went to 
the chief priefts and (aid to them : S. What will 
you give me, and I will deliver him up to you i 
C. And they ordered him thirty pieces of (ilver. 
And from that time he fought for an opportunity of 
betraying him. Now on the firft day of the feaft 
of unleaven bread, the difciples came to Jefus^ fay« 
ing r S. Where wilt thou have us prepare to eat the 
fctffiver ? C. And Jefus faid : f Go into the city 
to a certain man, and fay to him : The Mafter 
faith, my time is at hand : I will keep th^pajfover 
with my difciples at thy houfe. C, And the dif- 
ciples did as Jefus had ordered them, and made 
ready the paj/over. And when it was now even- 
ing, he went to table with his twelve difciples. 
And as they were eating, he f^id : f Amen I fay* 
to you : one of you will betray me. C. And being 
much troubled, they began every one to fay : 5. 
Is it Jy Lord i C And he ^Lufweun^^ faid : f He

will betray me. The Son of Man goeth indeed^ 
as it is written of him : but wo to that man, by 
whom the Son of Man (hali be betrayed : it hadi 
been better for that man, if he had never beea 
bom. C. Then Judas^ who betrayed him, an-^ 
fwering, faid : 8. Mafter, is it 1 ? C. He faid tn 
to him : f Thou haft faid it ^* C. And while they? 
were at fupper, Jefus took bread, and blefied it,^ 
and brbke it, and gave it to his difcipies, and faid ;. 
t Take ye and eat : this is my body. C. And taking 
the cup, he gave thanks, and gave it to them, fay- 
ing : t Drink you all of this : for this is my blood of 
the New Teinment, which (hall be fhed for many 
to the remiffion of fins. But I fay to you, I will 
not drink henceforth of this fruit of th6 vine, till 
that day, when I (hall drink it new with you in my 
father's kingdom. C. And having faid a hymn, 
they went out to mount Olivet. Then Jifits faith 
to them : f All of you will be fcandalized in me 
this night : for it is written : / willjirike tbejbep^

But after I am rifen again, I will go before you 
into Galilee. C Then Peter anfwering, faid to 
him : S. Thouzh all the reft fhould be fcandalized 
in thee, yet will I never be fcandalized. C Jefus 
faid to him : f Jrnen^ I fay to thee : this night oe- 
fore the cock croweth, thou wilt deny me thrice. 
C Peter faid to him : 5. Tho' I were to die with 
thee, yet will I not deny thee. C. And all thedif- 
ciplcsi Ukewife Aid the fame. Then Jefus came 
with them to a village called Getbfemani^ and faid 
to his difcipies ! f Sit you here, while I go thither 
and pray. C, And he took with him Peter and the

eth, thou wilt deny me thrice. And going forth

Pilate the governor. Then Judas^ who had be-

repentance, brought again the thirty pieces of filver 
to the chief priefls and elders, faying : S. I have 
finned in betraying righteous blood. C. But they 
faid : S. What is it to us ? Look thou to that. C. 
And cafting down the pieces of filver in the temple, 
he departed ; and went and hanged himfelf. But

price of blood. C. And having confulted together, 
they bought with it the Potters- field for the burial 
of ftrangers. For this reafon that field is called 
Haceldama^ that is, the field of blood, even to this

Tery notorious one^ called Barahhau And they 
being al&mbled together, filau faid to them: 
S. which will you that I releafe for you ; Barahhas^ 
or Jifus^ who is called the Chrift ? C. For he knew 
thc^nadcommitt^himoutofenvy. And as he was 
fittmg on the judgment-feat, his wife fent to him, 
iaying : S. Have nothing to do with that righteous 
man $ for I have fuffered very much this day in a 
dream, upon his account. C But the chief priefts 
and elders perfuaded the people to demand Barahhas^ 
and deftroy J^fus, Then the governor anfwering, 
faith to them : S. Which of the two wil] you havt 
difcharged i C. And they faid : S. Barabias. C. Tlie 
governor faith to them : S. What then fliall I do 
with Je/us^ who is called the Chri^ ? C. They alt 
fay : S. Let him be crucified. C, The governor re- 
plieth : S. Why, what evil hath he done f C. fiut 
they cried out the more, faying: S. Let him be 
crucified. C. Then Pilate feeing he could not 
prevail, but that rather a tumult was raifed, took 
water, and wafhing his hands before the people^ 
faid : 5. I am clear of the blood of this righteous 
man ; look you to it* C And all the people an* 
fwering, faid : S, Let his blood be on us, and on

diers took Jefu$ into the common-hall, and gather-

taking the reed, firuck him on the head. And 
after they had infulted him, they pulled off the 
xloak, and putting on his own clothes, led htm 
iiway to be crucified. And as they went out of 
theaty^ they found a man of Cjrene^ called Simon, 
and they compelled bim to carry his crofs. And 
they came to the place, called Golgotha^ which fig- 
nifieth a Calvary ^. And they gave him wine min- 
gled with gall to drink ; and when he had tailed it, 
he would not drink. After they had criici^dbim, 
they divided his garments, cafting lots;. that it 
might be fulfilled, which was fpoke by the prophet^ 
.iaymg^ Tbey divided my garments among theniy atuf

OF THE JEWS. Then were crucified with him 
,two thieves \ one on his right hand, and the other 
on his left. , And they that pafled by, reviled him, 
jQiaking their heads, and faying : S. Ah ! Thou 
Ihat defiroyeft the temple of God, and in three 
.days buildeft it up again ; fave thyfelf. If thou art 
the Son of God, come down from the cro&, C In 
like manner alfo the chief priefts, with the Scribes 
and elders, fcoffing him, faid : Si He faved others, 
ut cannot fave himfelf : if he be the King of Ifrael, 
et him now come down from the crofs, and 
we will believe him : he trufted in God, let him 
iLeliver him now, if he love him ; for he hath faid :

were crucified with him, reproached him in the

And going out.of their monuraehts, after his refur-

they faid: S. Not on the feaft-day, left there

when Jefus was at Bethanta^ in the houfe of Si*

having an alabafter box of very coftly ointment 
of fpikenard ; • and breaking the alabafter box,

{d3f to you: Wherever this gofpel fliall be preach*

{he hath done, (hall be told for a memorial of her. 
C. Then Judas the Ifcariot^ one of the twelvet 
went to the chief priefts to betray him to them. 
And when they heard it, they were glad, and pro* 
miCsd to give him money. And he (ought how he 
might conveniently betray him« Now on the firft

the city, found ^ery thing as he had faid to them, 
and made ready the Pajprvtr. And in the evening 
he came with the twelve. And as they were at 
table, and eating, Jifus faith : f Anun I fay to you :

I entered into Judasj one of the twelve, who

'and divide this among you. For I declare to you, 
I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, till the 
kingdom of God cometh. C. And having taken 
bread, he eave thanks, and broke it, and eave it 
to them, »ying : f This is my body, which is 
civen for you : do this in remembrance of me. C* 
He took likewife the cup, after he had fupp^, fay- 
ing : t 'I'his cup is the New Teftament in my 
blood, which fhall be (hed for you. But behold the 
hand of him, who betrayeth me, is with me on the 
table. And the Son of Man goeth indeed, asit is 
decreed : but wo to that man, by whom he (hall be 
betrayed. C. And they began to enquire amone 
themfelves, which of tbem it was, that (hould 
do this thing. And there arofe alfo a difpute among 
them, which of them feemed to be the gi^ateft. 
And he faid to them : if 'T^^ kings of the G/n-

over them are called benefadlors. But // is not f#

C. And going out, he went, acccording to his cu- 
(\om to the mount of Olives. And his difciples 
followed him. And when he wascon>e to the place» 
he laid to them : f Pray, that you fall not into

a ftone's caft, and, kneeling down down, he prayed^ 
Crying ' t Father, if it be thy pkafiire, put away 
this cup irom me: but Ttot my will, bat thine be 
done. C And an angel from heaven appeared to 
htm, ftrengthning him. And being in an agony, 
he prayed the more. And his fweat was as drops 
of blood trickling down upon the ground. And

his ear, he healed him. And Jifus faid to thofe 
that came to him, the chief priefts, and magi- 
ftrates of the temple, and elders : f Are you come 
with fwords and clubs as againft a robber? When 
I was every day with you in the temple, you never 
Iflid hands on me : but this is your hour, and the 
power of darknefs. C, Then they feizing him, led 
him to the houfe of the high prieft : and Piter fol- 
lowed at a diftance. And a fire being kindled in 
the middle of the court, they fat about it, and Pe^ 
tir was with them. And a maid>fervant feeing 
him fitting at the fire, and having viewed him, 
faid : S. This man was alfo with him. C. And he 
denied him, faying : S. Woman, I know him not. 
C. And a little after, a man alfo feeing him, faid : 
S. Thou too art one of them. C But Peter faid: 
S. O man, I am not. C And after the fpace of 
about an hour, another affirmed it, faying: S* 
Certainly this man was alfo with him : for he is a 
Galilean. C, And Peter faid : S. Man, I know not 
what thou fayeft. C. And immediately, while be 
was yet fpeaking, the cock crowed. And the Lord, 
turning about, looked at Peter, And Peter re* 
membered what the Lord had faid : Before the 
cock croweth, thou (halt deny me thrice. And Pe^ 
ier went Out, and wept bitterly. And the men that

I will therefore chaftife him, and then releafe him. 
C But they perfifted demanding with a loud voice

Cyreneafif coming out of the country, and laid Uie 
crofs on him to carry after Jefus. And there fW- 
lowed him a great multitude of the people, and of

!?2J^ BLESSING of theWATER. 


THE ofe of water among mankind, whenever 
they had a mind to expiate their faults, to 
renew their folemn engagements, or to enter upon 
exerdfes of piety and religion, is one of thofe uhi« 
verfid pra&ices every where found, where there are 
mny footfteps of an outward wor(hip remaining. It 
was no invention of the heathen nations, but a prac- 
tice that came to them by primitive tradition from 
oiir£rft father jfdam after bis fall, as an acknow- 
ledgment of being defiled with fin, and expreffive of 
that purity with which we ought to approach God. 
It was continued by Afofes among other primitive 
praiSices preparatory tofacrifice; and is ftill found 
at the entrance of our Churches; and the fprinkling 
therewith is the beginning of our facrifice on the 
Iblemn appointed day of reft. Salt is mixt with the 
water to keep it I'weet, and the one and the other 
are folemnly confecratedy that is to fay, are with- 
drawn from all profane ufes, to be applied only to 
thoie of reli|ion. The Charch attributes no fuper- 
natural ttkct to this fan^lified water, but what ic 
may pleafe God to grant to it, in order to (hew the 
force of the prayers of his Church, or to recompenfe 
the faith of fuch as ufe it with the refped due to 
what hath been confecrated and fet apart for the ufes 
of religion. The faithful therefore are to receive 
this fprinkling of water with great humility, and a 
forrow for their fins, reciting the 50th Pfalm in 
whole or in part : And afterwards to take fome of 
the water home with them to ufe with faith and 
piety, according to the intention of the Church, at

IN the beginning was the word, and the word 
was with God, and the word was God. The 
fame was in the beginning with God. All things 
were made by him : and without him was made 
nothing that was made. In him was life, and the 
life was the light of m^^n : and the light (hineth in 
darknefs, and darknefs did not comprehend it. 
There' was a man fent from God, whofe name 
was John, This man came for a witnefs, to bear 
witncfs of the light, that all men might believe 
through him. He was not the light, but came to 
bear witnefs of the light. He was the true light, 
that enlighteneth every man, that cometh into this 
world. He was in the world, and the woild was 
made by him, and the world knew him not. He 
came unto his own, and his own received him not. 
But as many as received him, to them he gave power 
to become the foris of God, to them that believe 
in his name. Who are born, not of blood, nor of 
the will of the flefli, nor of the will of man, but 
of God. And • the word was made flesh, 
and dwelt among us (and we faw his glory, the 
glory as of the only-begotten of the Father) full of 
grace and truth.

WHAT return fliall I make the Lord, for 
what he hath beftowed upon me ? I will 
oiler him a facrifice of praife \ and my heart, tranf- 
ported with joy, (hall fing canticles to the Lord, 
who hath heaped his blefHngs on me. He hath 
given me the bread of heaven ; a poor mortal crea- 
ture, furrounded with infirmity, hath eaten the 
bread of Angels, a mofl delicious food, which be- 
ftows immortality on thofe that eat it worthily. 
The Lord himfelf hath become my food ; and the 
food he hath given me is his own ileih, which he 
gave for the life of the world. O divine Saviour, 
how great is thy love for thy children ! How good 
art thou to thofe, who hope in thee, and feek thee ! 
Thou ha(l prepared for me a plentiful table, to 
give me ftrength againft my enemies. Now there- 
fore in the midft of dangers, and even in the flia- 
dow of death, will I fear nothing, becaufe thou 
art with me. Abide in me, and let me abide in 
thee. Continue to beftow upon me this heavenly 
bread, and grant that, after I have eaten thereof, 
my hunger may be encreafed. Let me labour all 
my life for that food, which remaineth for ever, 
and which thou alone canft give. Let me be fo 
ftrengthened thereby, that I may be able to walk 
on to thy eternal mountain, there to fee thee face 
to face, and adore thee with the Father and Holy 
Ghoft, one God, world without end. Amen.

J^AT U R DAY, from the beginning, was the day apN 
5 pointed to be kept holy, in memory of God^s having, 
reated the world in fix days, and reding on the feventh^ 
tut as it was on a Sunday xhii Cbrijl arofe from the dead, 
ic Apoflles transferred the folethnity of Saturday to the 
unJay, During the rage of the moft violent perfecutions, 
ic primitive Chriftians never thought themfelves exempc 
rom the obligation of fandlifying this day, by afTembling 
irith their brethren- to hear the holy fcriptures read, and- 
artake of the holy myfteries. For when the heathen 
Imperors had forbid the religious afTemblies of the Chri* 
ians under pain of death, St. Fi^oria told the Judg<$ : 
tuas at the affemhly and the celebration of the myfteries with 
he hrethreni for I am a Chriftian. St. Saturninuf the 
le Prieft declared at the fame time, That they had cele* 
rated the mjfteries of the Lord without fear^ becaufe they 
mid not be omtted: For our lazvyhys he, /o appoints, and 
» teaches. And in the fame manner another Martyr an* 
vercd : We held our meetings and we always meet on th$ 
anday to read the fcriptures of our Lord, Such were the 
rntiments, fuch the behaviour of our pious anceftors ia 
le faith of Chrijf. 
The obligation therefore of affifting at the holy facrifice 
f the A/ct/}, and of hearing the publick inftru£lions, which 
le ancient Church called hearing or reading the fcriptures^. 
I an- cfTential part of our duty on Sundays ; but not the 

d a 


whole duty of the day. For the law of God obliges ns 
to (kndify the whole day ; and for this reafon there 13 1 
publick and folemn fervice both m the forenoon and after- 
noon, which thofe, who underftand their religion, do not 
caiily abient themfelves from, or think they have compli- 
ed with the duty of the day, after they have heard Mais 
in the morning. 

Our religion obliges us to abftain from all unneceffary 
fervile work or bodily labour (but more particularly from 
fin) , and as to diveriions, (tho' fuch as are innocent and 
modeft may be allowed after the time of publick fervice) 
St. Juguftin heiitates not to declare the modifh diveriions 
of balls^ playsy Wr. more contrary to the fanftiiication of 
the SMtitb, than fome ufeful fervile work. Let therefore 
Chriilians remember their chief.concern on ^irxu^j^x ought 
to be the fan^liHcation of their fouls by prayer and a kiv. 
ous meditation on the duties of religion.

and for having (ealed this their teftimony with their blood,

God for the eonrage and confbmcy he gave them, and 
propofes their example to her children. It is true, ive 
do not live amongft Idolaters, againft whom we have our

things: he honoured him in his troubles, and fi- 
j)i(bed his labours. ^ He ftood by hitn againft the 
deceit of thofe that would over-reach him, and made 
him honourable.. He kept him fafe from his ene- 
mTcs, and defended him from feducers ; and gave 
him a ftrong conflidl, that he might overcome, and 
to let him know that wifdom is mfghtier than all. 
This wifdom forfook not the righteous man, when 
he was fold, but delivered him from finners. She 
went down with him into the pit, and in his bands 
fhe left him not, till fhe brought him thefcepterof 
the kingdom, and power againft thofe that oppref-

IN the five or fix firft ages of the Church, thofe were call'd 
Ctmfejforsy who confefled Jefus Chrift before the Pa- 
gans; particularly if tortures accompanied this their Con- 
^tSion, as was generally the cafe. In after times the name 
of C4mfejf(ir was given to fuch as confefifed Jefus Chrift by 
the purity and fanftity of their lives. There are different 
degrees of Confejfors: fome of them were Bift?opsy fomc 
Prieftsy and Dolors of the Church; and by their intercef- 
fion we ought to beg of God paftors full of his fpirit, and 
capable of reaching the truths intruded to them. Others 
vt trc. Monks ox Solitaries i and it is thro' their intercef- 
fion we ought to beg of God the fpirit of retirement and 
pennance. Others lived in the world in different ftates 
and conditions. But they all lived without any attach* 
ment to the things of this world ; and defpifed whatever 
is tranfitory, to give themfelves up to God and his truths ; 
and mortifying their bodies by pennaiice, they underwent 
a fort of martyrdom in the perpetual mortification of their 
paflions, and denial of their own will. It is to the imita- 
tion of thefe virtues that their fealls ought to animate us; 
and, on them, we ought to have recourfe to God, that, 
thro' their intercefiion, we may obtain his enabling grace 
to follow their Heps.

and traded with the fame, and gained other five. 
And in like manner he that had received thg two, 
gained other two. But he that had received the one, 
going his way, dug in the earth, and hid his Lord's 
money. But aftef a long time the Lord of thofe fer-

had received the five talents, coming brought other 
five talents, fayingr : Lord, thou deliveredft to me 
five talents : behold I have gained other five over and

THE ftate of Virginity is perftftly agreeable to tHc 
Chriilian fcheme, whatever obje£lions human po- 
licy may make againft it. God himfclf, become incarnate, 
recommends it by word and example. St. Paul bedows 
the grcatell encomia ms on it; and* in every age of the 
Church, thofc that prelcrved their virginity, were always 
fooked on as the nobleft portion of the flock of Cbrtft. 
On the feftivals therefore of virgins, we are to beg of God 
the grace of penevcrance to the end, for all thofc who 
have voluntarily, by vow, undertaken that perfcfl ftate ; 
as likewife for all, that puriry of mind ncccffary in every, 
ftate of life, and jvithout which we cannot fee God.

creature thou art; that having paid the commondebt, 
by furrcndering thy foul, thou may'ft return to thy 
Maker, who formed thee out of the earth. May 
therefore the poble company of Angels meet thy foul

lilies in their hands encompafs thee; may thejoyfiii 
choir of Firgitts receive thee; and may a happy reft 
be thy portion in the company of the Patriarchu 
may Chryl J ejus appear to thee with a mild and 
cheerful countenance, and give thee place among 
thofc, who are to be in his prcfcnce for ever. May 
thou be a ftrancer to the hoirors of darknefs, to the 
gnafliing of teeth in flames, and to excruciating tor-

feaft and rejoice in the prefence of God. May 
therefore all the legions of hell be confounded and 
put to (bame, and none 'of the minlfters of Satan 
prefume to ftop thee in thy journey. May Cbriji^ 
who was crucified for thee, deliver thee from tor* 
oients. May Cbrsfl^ who vouchfafed to die for 
thee, deliver thee from eternal death. May Chrtft^ 
the Son of the living God, place thee in the ever-

J PRAYER for ohtaining an INDULGENCE. 


AN Indulgence is a favour granted by the Church to 
penitent finners, whereby, in coniideration of their 
performing fome particular adls of religion, fpecified in 
the grant of the indulgence, the whole, or part of the ca- 
nonical pennance formerly enjoined for particular fins, is 
relaxed and remitted. If the whole be remitted, the In- 
dulgence is called Plenary, if only a part,.4t is called ah 
Indulgence o^ feven years, f cur years, two years, ox forty 
days, according to the part of the Canonical pennance to 
be remitted. The Bifhops of Rome alone at prefent grant 
fuch as are plenary ; the other Bifhops in their refpe^live 
Dioccfes feldom exceed in their grants that of forty days^ 
Hence it appears that an Indulgence is fo far from be- 
ing either a leave or permifiion to commitlin, (as is fome- 
times pretended by thofe, who venture their falvation on 
condemning do^rines they either do not, or wiUnot un« 
derfland) that it is not fo much as even a forgiving of fins, 
but only a relaxation of the punifhmeni due to fins already 
forgiven in the £icrameut cf pennance. 

cccxvi jf P R A Y E R fer gaiting 

That the Qmrch was intnifted with foch an authority 
by CArifi^ and hath io every age eacercUcd this authority, 
moft be acknowledged by a1l« who are not ftrangers to 
Scripture and Church-hiftory. St. PmU had juffly ez- 
commanicated the ince(luoi]sCinjvi£rtf»; but^ in confide- 
ration of the fcrvoar of his repentance, he reftored him 
again to the (acnuneots and the commnnion of the faithful, 
in confeqaence of the power of Iooiing» as well as binding, 
which Cbrift had left in the Charch. And in the pri- 
mitive ages we meet with nothing more frequent, than a 
relaxation of the canonical pcAnaiicea>at the intreaties and 
reqneft of the Martyrs. 

The followbg decree therefore of the Conncil oifrent, 
$iff, 14. df Refirm. cannot but be applauded by tvtry fober 
and difpafllonatc man. "As the power of beflowing Indul- 
** gences was granted by Cbrift to the Church, and as the 
f< Church, even in the moft early ages, made ufe of this 
*< power... the holy fynod teacheth and appointeth the ufe 
«* of indulgences, fo very falutary to Chriftian people, and 
«« approved of by the authority of the (acred Councils, 
*< to be reuined m the Church... but dcfires that modera- 
•• tion fhould be nfed in the grant of them, according to 
" the ancient and approved ufe of the Church ; left, by 
** too much cafe, the difcipline of the Church be enerva- 
*' ted. ' Tut deliring likewiie that the abufcs that have 
** crept therein may be corredcd, ihe orders in general 
** tlve aboliihiiig all trafBck for gaining the fame.'* And 
deiircs all the Blihops to apply *' proper remedies to what- 
" ever abufes may Lave arifen from fuperftitioni ignorance, 
"and irreverence, in the ufe thereof." 

The conditions upon which alone we can receive the 
effefls of any Indulgence, are, i . To be truly forry for our 
iins. 2. To have a finccre defire of fatisfyihg for them 
3. To fatisfy as far as is in our power. 4. To have ob 
tained the rcmillion of fin as to the guilt of it. <;. To ful 
fil tlie a£^s of religion prcfcribcd for the obtaining the In 
dulgence; fuch as fading, praying, vifitirig chmches, gi 
ving alms, receiving the blefTcd Eucharifl, &f^.

O Almighty and cvcriafting God, it is with con- 
fufton of countenance and contrition of heart 
that I prefent myk\4 \w ^^^\^ ^^^>m^ ^ WmllitY on

my bended knees before thy divine Majefty, whom 
I have offended moft grievoufly by my manifold 
crimes and offences. Great hath been their enor- 
mity, and fuch as thy juftice would have punifhed 
with eternal torments, had not thy mercy interpo- 
fed, and faved me from thy wrath by the blood of 
thy holy only Son,which hath been applied to my foul 
by thy minifter in the facrament of pennance. Thou 
haft again therefore, in thy infinite goodnefs, admit- 
ted me into favour : thou haft placed me again at 
thy table with thy children, and fed me with the 
food of life, and the bread of Angels, But I can 
never forget my paft ingratitude to thee, O my 
God, my Father, and my King, I deteft again all 
the crimes I have ever committed againft thy di- 
vine Majefty. I acknowledge, that tho* thou haft 
taken away my fins, there remaineth yet a punifti- 
ment due to them. The difcipline of thy Church, 
tho' ever unchangeable in the fpirit that guides and 
directs it, requires no longer thofe external rigours 
of pennance formerly prad:ifed, and which I know 
the enormity of fins demand ^ but thy juftice is ftill 
the fame, and fin muft ftill be fatisfied for. This, 
my God, I have in fome meafure endeavoured to 
do, and will ftill increafe my efforts to perform in 
the beft manner I am able. 

" But do thou, O God, confirm and ratify what 
thy Vicar on earth hath done. He hath opened the 
trcafures of the Church, and I may now apply to 
my foul .the fuperabundant merits of Jefus Chrtji^ 
thy only Son, and thofe of all his faints, which are 
his own gifts in them, to fupply all the defefts of 
the fatisfadlion I have or may perform for my fins. 
Accept therefore the alms, fafts, and prayers 
which I offer to thy divine Majefty. I pray not 
for myfelfonly, but for the whole Catholick Church 
all over the world. For the fupreme Paftor there- 
of, the fuccefl'or of St, Peter^ the chief of thy Apo- 
ftlcs : for the Prelate, to whom ihoviVv^ft. ^i^vasw^-

ted the care of thy flock m this diftrid, and for all 
the Paftors, who labour under him in the falvation 
of fouls : for the Prince appointed by thee for the 
government of thefe realms. I pray alfo for all 
Chriftian Piinces, that they may live in peace and 
perfect concord, and avoid all the profanations, 
horrors, and dcvaftations of war. Look down al- 
fo, in thy mercy, on all thofe unhappy fouls that 
know not thee, the true and living God, or rcfufe 
to believe thofe truths thou haft revealed to thy holy 
Catholick Church, or obftinately remain feparate 
therefrom, and by fchifm deftroy that unity, which 
thy only-begotten Son appointed to be kept by all 
his difciples. Grant this my humble petition, I 
befecch thee, O almighty God, thro' the hmeji- 
Jhs Chri/1 thy Son our Lord, who with thee and the 
Hdy Ghofl: livcth and reigneth one God world 
without end. Amen.

IN. N. with a firm faith believe and profcfs all 
and every one of thofe things, which are con- 
tained in the Creed, which the holy Catholick 
Church maketh ufe of, viz. I believe in one God, 
the Father almighty, i^c, in the Nicene Creed, at 

I moft ftedfaftly admit and embrace Apoftolical 
and Ecclefiaftical traditions^ and all other obfer-

of the true fenfe and interpretation of the Scrip- 
tures : nekTatt vj'vW V ^v^i Va^^ ^tA v^ter^ret them 


otherwife than according to the unanimous confent 
of the Fathers. 

I alfo profefs, that there are truly and properly

Jus Chrijl our Lord, and neceffary for the falvation 
of mankind ; tho' not all for every one, vi%.' Bap--

Un^ion^ Order^ and Matrimony \ atid that they con^ 
fer grace : and that of thcfe, Baptifm^ Confirmatiottj 
and Order cannot be reiterated without facrilege. 
I alfo receive and admit the received and approved 
Ceremonies of the Cathofick Church in the folemfl 
adminiflration of all the aforefaid facraments. 

I embrace and receive all and every one of the 
things which have been defined and declared m the 
holy Council of Trent ^ ccfncerning Original Sin and 

I profefs likewife, that in the Mafs there is of- 
fered to God, a true, proper, and propitiatory fa- 
crifice for the living and the dead. And that in the 
moft holy facrament of the Euchariji^ there is /r«- 
ly^ really^ ?s\d fubjiantially the body and bloirdy toge- 
ther with the foul and divinity of our Lord Jefus 
Chriji: and that there is made a converjion or change 
of the wliole fubfiana of the bread into the ^ody^ 
and of the whole fubjlance of the wine into the 
blood \ which converjion or change the Catholick 
Church calls tranjubflantiation* I alfo coiifefs that 
under either kind alone Chrijl is received whole and 
entire, and a true facrament. 

I conftantly hold that there is a Purgatory^ and 
that the fouls therein detained are helped by the 
fuffrages of the faithful. 

Likewife that the Saints reigning together with 
Chrijl are to be honoured, and invocated, and that 
they offer prayers to God for us ; and that their 
r clicks are to be refpeded. 

I moft firmly aflcrt, that the Images of Chrijl^ of 
the ever^Virgiti-mother of God, and alfo of other 

cccxx A PROFESSION, 6fr. 

Saints ought to be had and retained \ and that iut 
honour and veneration is to be given to them. 

I alfo affirm that the power of Indulgences was 
left by Chriji in the Church, and that the ufe of 
them is mod wholefome to Chriftlan people. 

I acknowledge the holy^ Catbolick^ Jlpoftolick^ 
Roman Church for the Mother and Miftrefs of all 
other Churches ; and I promife true obedience to 
the Bijbop of Rome^ fucceflbr to St. Peter ^ Prince 
of the Apoftles, and Vicar of Jefus Chrift. 

I likewife undoubtedly receive and profefs all' 
other things delivered, defined, and declared by the

larly by the holy Council of Trent. And 1 con- 
-?demn, reje£l, and anathematize all things contrary
