Administration of the LORD'S SUPPER,

or HOLY COMMUNION. 159 many as intend to be partakers of the Holy Communion,

shall signify their names to the curate at least some time the day before. And if any of those be an open and notorious evil liver, or have a done any wrong to his neighbours by word or deed, so that the Congregation be thereby offended; the Curate having knorvledge thereof, shall call him and advertise him, that in any wise he presume not to come to the Lord's Table, until he hath openly deciared hımjelf to have truly repented and amended his former naughty life, that the Congregation may thereby be fatisfied, which before were offended; and that he hath recompen cd the parties to whom he hath done wrong, or at least declare himself to be in full purpose fo to do, as soon as he conveniently may. The same order shall the Curate use wirh those betwixt whom he perceiveth malice and hatred to reign ; not suffering them to be par. takers of the Lord's Table, until he know them to be reconciled. And if one of the Parties so ai variance be content to forgive from the bottom of his heart all that the other hath trespassed against him, and to make amends for that he himself hath oifended; 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 Communion, and not him ihat is obftinate. Provided that every Minister jo repelling any, as is specified in this, or the next precedent paragraph of this Rubrick, shall be obliged to give an account of the same to the Ordinary within for!rteen days after at the fartheft. And the Ordinary shall proceed against the

offending Person according to the Canon. 1 The Table at the Communion time having a fair white linen cloth upon it, Thall stand in the body of ihe church, or in the Chancel, where Morning and Evening Prayer are appointed to be said. And the

Prieji standing at the North side of the Table, mall say the Lord's Prayer, with the Collect following, the People kneeling.
