Order for Morning Prayer, the Litany, and the Order for the Administration of the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion, are independent Services, and may be used either separately or together; Provided That no one of those Mervices be habitually disused.)

For days of Fasting and Thanksgiving, appointed by the Civil or by the Foclesiastical Authority, and for other special occasions for which no Service or Prayer hath boon provided in this Book, the Bishop may set forth auch Form or Forms as he shall think fit, in which case the same shall be usod and none other.

IS APPOINTED TO BE READ.

THE Old for the Second Lessons at Morning and Evening Prayer

HE Old Testament is appointed for the First Lessons, and the New

throughout the Year.

And to know what Lessons shall be read every day, look for the day of the month in the Calendar following, and there ye shall find the Chapters that shall be read for the Lessons both at Morning and at Evening Prayer; except only the Moveable Holy-days, which are not in the Calendar; and the Immoveable, where there is a blank left in the column of Lessons; the Proper Lessons for all which days are to be found in the Table of Proper Lessons. If in any Church, upon a Sunday or Holy-day, both Morning and Evening Prayer be not said, the Minister may read the Lessons appointed either for Morning or for Evening Prayer.

At Evening Prayer on Sunday, the Minister may read the Lesson from the Gospels appointed for that Day of the Month, in place of the Second Lesson for the Sunday.

Upon any Day for which no Proper Lessons are provided, the Lessons appointed in the Calendar for any Day in the same week may be read in place of the Lessons for the Day.

On Days of Fasting and Thanksgiving, especially appointed, and on occasions of Ecclesiastical Conventions and of Charitable Collections, the Minister may appoint such Lessons as he shall think fit in his discretion.

HYMNS AND ANTHEMS.

HYMNS may be sung before and after every Office in this Book, and also

before and after Sermons; but only such Hymns shall be used in this Church as are or may be duly set forth and allowed by the authority of the same; and Anthems only in the words either of Holy Scripture or of the Book of Common Prayer.

(c) Add to the Calendar a Feast to be entitled, The Transfiguration of Christ, and assign the same to the sixth day of August.
