The Order for the Administration of the Lord's Supper, or
HOLY COMMUNION

[341]
So 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 done any wrong to his neighbours by word or deed, so that the Congregation be thereby offended; the Curate having knowledge 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 declared himself to have truly repented, and amended his former naughty life, that the Congregation may thereby be satisfied, which before were offended; and that he hath recompensed the parties to whom he hath done wrong, or at least declare himself to be in full purpose so to do, as soon as he conveniently may.
The same order shall the Curate use with those betwixt whom he perceiveth malice and hatred to reign; not suffering them to be partakers of the Lord's Table, until he knows them to be reconciled. And if one of the parties, so at 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 offended; and [342] 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 that is obstinate. Provided that every Minister so 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 fourteen days after at the farthest. And the Ordinary shall proceed against the offending Person according to the Canon.
The Table at the Communion time having a fair white Iinen cloth upon it, shall stand in the body of the Church, or in the Chancel, where Morning and Evening Prayers are appointed to be said. And the Priest standing at the north side of the Table, shall say the Lord's Prayer, with the Collect following, the People kneeling.

AYR ain, t'ayns niau; Casherick dy row dty Ennym. Dy jig dty reeriaght. Dt'aigney dy row jeant er y thalloo, myr te ayns niau. Cur dooin nyn arran jiu as gagh laa. As leih dooin nyn loghtyn, myr ta shin leih dauesyn ta jannoo loghtyn nyn 'oï. As ny leeid shin ayns miolagh; Agh livrey shin veih oik. Amen.

The Collect.

YEE Ooilley-niartal, hood's ta dy chooilley chree foshlit, dy chooilley yeearree er-fys, as voïd's nagh vel folliaght erbee er ny cheiltyn; Glen smooinaghtyn ny creeaghyn ain lesh bree dty Spyrryd casherick, dy vod mayd dy firrinagh [343] graih 'chur dhyt, as dy feeu ard-voylley 'choyrt da dty Ennym casherick, trooid Creest nyn Jiarn. Amen.

Then shall the Priest, turning to the People, rehearse distinctly all the TEN COMMANDMENTS; and the People, still kneeling, shall after every commandment ask God's mercy for their transgression thereof for the time past, and grace to keep the same for the time to come, as followeth.

Then shall follow one of these two Collects for the Queen, the Priest standing as before, and saying,

Lhig dooin padjer y ghoaill.

Then shall be said the Collect of the Day. And immediately after the Collect, the Priest shall read the Epistle, saying, The Epistle [or, The portion of Scripture appointed for the Epistle] is written in the - Chapter of - beginning at the -- Verse. And the Epistle ended, he shall say, Here endeth the Epistle. Then shall he read the Gospel (the People all standing up) saying, The holy Gospel is written in the - Chapter of - beginning at the - Verse. And the Gospel ended, shall be sung or said the Creed following, the People still standing as before.

[347] TA mee credjal ayns un Jee, yn Ayr Ooilley-niartal, Chroo niau as thalloo, as dy chooilley nhee t'ayns fakin as gyn fakin:

Amen.

Then the Curate shall declare unto the People what Holydays, or Fast-[348]ing-days, are in the week following to be observed. And then also (as occasion be) shall notice be given of the Communion: and the Banns of Matrimony published; and Briefs, Citations, and Excommunications read. And nothing shall be proclaimed or published in the Church, during the time of Divine Service, but by the Minister: nor by him any thing, but what is prescribed in the Rules of this Book, or enjoined by the Queen, or by the Ordinary of the place.

Then shall follow the Sermon, or one of the Homilies already set forth, or hereafter to be set forth by Authority.

Then shall the Priest return to the Lord's Table, and begin the Offertory, saying one or more of these sentences following, as he thinketh most convenient in his discretion.

Whilst these sentences are in reading, the Deacons, Churchwardens, or other fit persons appointed for that purpose, shall receive the Alms for the poor, and other devotions of the People, in a decent Basin to be provided by the Parish for that purpose; and reverently bring it to the Priest, who shall humbly present and place it upon the holy Table.
And when there is a Communion, the Priest shall then place upon the Table so much Bread and Wine, as he shall think sufficient. After which done, the Priest shall say,

Lhig dooin padjer y ghoaill son slane stayd Agglish Chreest caggey ayns shoh wass er y thalloo.
