I hath bern the wisdom of the Church of England, ever since the first compiliay of her Publick Liturgy, to keep

the mean between the two extreams, of too much ftittosis, varia ion from it. For, as on the one lide coin mon experience meweth, that where a chance hath beca made of things ad. vitedly eit abliched (no evident pecetlity so requiring) fundry inconveniencies have thereupon enfucd; and those many times Inore, and greater than the evils that uere intended to be remedied by such change : So on the other fide, the particular Forms of Divine Worthip, and the Rites and Ceremonies appointed to be used therein, being things in their own nature indiferent, and alterable, and to acknowledged; it is but reasonable, that upon weighty and important comiderations, according to the various exigency of times and occafions, fuch changes and alterations Munila be made therein, as to those that are in place of Authority thould from time to time feem either deceitary or expedient. Accordingly we find, that in the Reigns of leveral Princes of hieited mainory since the Reformation, the Church, upon Juft and weighty confiderations me thereubtu movine, baih yielded to make reca alterativas

in forre particulars, as in their respective times were thourht convenient : Yet so as that the main Body and Elcntials of it (as well in the chiefoft materials, as in the frame and order thereof) have fill continued the same upto this day, and do yet fand firm and unthaken, notwithftanding all the valt at fempts, and impetuous atļaults inade against it, by luch nien as are riven to change, and have always discovered a greater regard to their own private fancies and interefts, than to that duty they owe to the publick.

By what undue means, and for what mischievous purposes the ofe of the Liturgy (though enjoined by the Laws of the Land, and those Laws never yet repealed ) carne, durior the Jate unhappy confufions, to be discontinued, is too well known to the world, and we are not willing here to reincrpber. But when, upon his Majetty's Happy Restoration it seemed probable, that amonght other things the use of the Liturgy alto would return of course (the same having never been legally abolished) unless some timely means were ulid to prevent it; those men who under the late usurped powers had mate it a great part of their business to render ibeir people diaffected thereunto, faw themselves ia point of réputation and interer

For they fordered the matter, that all the profitable and commodious than that which of late was used. whole Bible (or the greated part thereof) bould be read over It is more profitable, because here are left out many things, once every Year; intending thereby, that the Cle ey, and wbereof some are untrue,come uncertain some vain and fupra tracciaty ruch es were Minifters in the congregation, should Aitious; and nothing is ordained to be read, but !he veti pure (by often read.ng, and meditation in Gods word) be ftirred up Word of God, the holy Scriptures, or that which is agrecable to godlinefs thenfelves, and be more able to exhort others by to the same, and that in fuchs Language and Order as is most waliome Doctrins, and to cenfute them that were adversaries easy and plain for the undertanding both of the readers and to the truth; and further that the peor le (by caily hearing hearers.

of q OF CEREMONIES, IVhy some be abolished, and some retaine. O

F fuch Ceremonies as be used in the Church, and have had their beginning by the inftitution of man, fome at the firft were of zodly intent and purpose

d viled, and yet ar length turned to vanity and Superftiti n : Some entred into the Church by indifcreet Devotion, and such a zeal as was without knowleder ; and for because they w.re winked at in the beginning, tley grew daily :o more and more Abules, which not only for their voproñablets, but also because they have much blinded the people, and ohfcured the Glory of God, are worthy to be cut away, and clean rejected: Other there be, which although they have been deviled by man, yet it is thought rood to referve them till, as well for a decent order in the Church (for the which they were first devired) as because they pertain to edification, whereunto all chibre done in the Church (23 the Apoftic teacherh) ought to be referred.

And al hough the kecping or omitting of a Ceremony in ittelf confidered, is but a mall thing; yet the wilful and contempturus transgreffion and braking of a common Order and Discipline, is no finall offence before God. Let all tbings be done among yout, faith Saint Paul in a frerly ani due Order: The aprointment of the which Order pertaineth net to private men; therefore no mar ought to take in hand, nor presume to appoint or alter any puhlick or common Orderin Christs Church, except he be lawfully called and authorized thereunto.

And whereas in this our time, the minde of men are so di. verte, that some think it a great matter of conscience to depart from a piece of the least of their Ceremonies, they be to addicted to their old custome; and again on the other lide, fome be fo new-fangled, that they would innovate all things, ant to despite the old, that nothing can like them, but that is new : It was thought expedient, bot ro mach to have reinect how to pleare and satisfy either of thefe parties, as how to please God, and profit thein both. And yet let any man thould be offended, whom good reason might satisfy, here be certain caufes rendered, why fome of the accustomed Ceremonies be put away, and some retained and kept fill.

Some are put away because the great excess and multitude of them hath so increased in these latter days, that the burden o' them was intolerable; whereof Saint Auguftine in his time complained that they were grown to such a number that the estate of Chriftian people was in wnpfe care concerning that matter than were the Jews. And he countered that fuch yoke and burden thould be taken away, as time would serve quietly to do it. But what would saint nuguftine have fait, if he had (een the ceremonies of lare days used 31oog us; where unto the multitude used in his time was not to be compared ? This our exceffive multitude of Ceremonies was forcat, and Inany of them fo dark, that they did more confound and

darken, than declare and let forth Chritts benefits unio And besides this, Christa Gospel is not a ceremonial La Mas much of Miles Law was ) hut it is a Religion to ter God, not in bondage of the figure or thdow, but in the fre dom of the Spirit; being content only with those Ceremoni which do feive to a decent Oroer and godly Dilcaplinea such as apt to fir up the dull mind of man to the remem brance of his duty to God, by fome norable and special pri car on, whereby he might be edified. Furthermore, the mc weighty cause of the abolishment of certain Cerernonies w That they were fo far ahused; partly by the fuperftitioublic ness of the rude and unlearned, and partly by the urratias avarice of such as fought more their own lucre, than Glory of God, that the abuses could not well te taken away the thing remaining Mill.

But now as concerning those perfons, which peradventur will be offended, for that some of the old Ceremonies are re tained fill : If they consider that without fome Ceremonies i is not posible to keep any Order, or quiet Discipline in the Church, they shall easily perceive junt cause to reform thei judgments. And if they think much that any of the old d remain, and would rather have all devised aacw: Then i men granting fome Ceremonies convenient to be had, fureix where the old may be well ufed, there they cannot reasonably reprove the old only for their age, without bewrayirs o their own folly. For in such a case they ought raiher to have reverence into them for their Antiquity, if they will declare them felves to be more ftudious of Unity and Concord, than of innovation and nest-tanpleners, whih (as much 23 may be with true fettire forth of Chrif Religion) is always to be efchewed. Furthermore, such Mall have ne juft caure with the Ceremonies relcrved to be offended. For as thore be 'aken away which were moft abused, and did burden mens confciences without any Cause; fo the other that rerrain, are retained for a Discipline and Order, which umnjunt Cautes) may be altered, and charged, and therefore are not to be etteemed equal with' Guds Law. And mereover, they be neither dark or dumb Ceremonies, but are so set forth, that every man may understand what they do inein, and to what ure they do ferve. So that it is not like that they in time to come hould be abused as other have bren. And in these con doing we condemn no other Nations, not prescribe any thing but to our own people only: For we think it covenient that every Country shoulí use such Ceremonies as they fall thiak beft to the setting forth of Gods Honcur and Glory, ant to the reducing of the people to a molt perfect and goaly living, without Error or Superftition, and that they should not 3way other things, which from time to time they perceive to be most abufed, as in mens Ordinances it often chanccth diverfly in divers Countries.

The Order how the Psalter is appointed to be read.

HE Psalter shall be read through once every Month, as it is there appointed both for Morning and Evening Prayer. But in February it thall be read

only to the twenty eighih, or twenty ninth day of the Month.

And whereas January, Marib, May, July, Auguf, . O&abor, and Documber, have one and thirty day, a piece; It is

ordered that the fame psalms Mall he recine last day of the aid Months, which were read the day before : So that the Palter may begin again the first day of the next Month epfuing.

And whereas the CXIX Psalm is divided into XXII Por

tions, and is ov't long to be read at one time; It is foordered, that at one time thall not be read above four or five of the aid Portions.

And the end of every Psalm, and of every such Part of the CXIX Pralin, thall be repeated this Hymn: Glory betoibe Forber and to ibe Sms: and to tbr hady Gb;

As was in the beginning, is now, and ever ball be ? world vir bout end. Amen.

Note, That the Pfalter followeth the Division of the He. brer's, and the Translation of the great Englin Bible, ret forth and used in the line of King Henry the Eighth, and Edward the sixth.

I The Order how the rest of the Holy Scripture is appointed to be read.

HE CU Teftamentis app vinted for the first Lemons

a: Morning and Evening Prayer fo as the most part thereof will be read over every year once, as

ats Calendar 19 aprointed. The new Testament is appointed for the second Letons at Morning and Evenine Prayer, and thall be read over orderly every year thrice, befidratle Eolles and Geipels; Excent the Apocalyps, out of which there are only certain proper Lellons appointed up an divars Feafts.

And to know what I crtions thall be read every day, look for the day of the Month in the Calendar following, and Merc ye thall find the Chapter that tall be read for the

Lefrons both at Morning and Evening Prayers ; except only the Moveable Feats which are not in the Calendar, and the Immoveable, where there is a black let in the Columu of Lessons; the proper Lotions for all which days are to be found in the Table of proper Lens.

And noce, That when oever proper Pralms or Lestons are appointed: then the Pfalms and Lettons of ordinary course appointed in the Pfaler and Calendar (if they be different) mall be omitted for that time.

Note also. Thish Colle, Epifle, and Gospel appointed for the Sunday. At leve albe Week after, where it is not in this book otherwise ordered.
