'HE usual Reason which Men asign for their not coming so often to the Holy Sacra
ment as they would do, is their Fear of eat. ing and drinking unworthily, and consequently of incurring their own Damnation thereby. The Design then of this short Discourse is, to fnew what that Sacramental Preparation is, which is absolutely necessary to qualify Men for a worthy Participation
of the Lord's Supper, that so Men may come without the least Fear of eating and drinking Damnation to themselves i For which Purpose, I conceive no Ruie, no Instruction more safe, easy and instructive, than that of our Church Catechism, which I have endeavoured to explain, and to accommodate for the Use and Benefit of the meanest Capacity.
The concluding Part of this Discourse ontains Prayers and Meditations preparative to a Sacramental Preparation ; and though they be few in Number, yet I hope they fully answer all thoje Jeveral Parts of a Communicant's Duty, according to that Rule and Stanılard which our Church has fixed for our Guide and Companion to the hole Altar. By the Addition of those Psalms, and proper Lessons annexed to each particular Praver and Meditation, the Communicant may enlargelis Devotions to what Degree or Length he please... By which Method you have as much Matter for actual Preparation in this little Book, as in any other Discourse of this Nature whatsoever,
