HOLY COMMUNION. 1 V among those who come to be partakers of the Holy Communion, the Minister

shall know any to be an open and notorious evil liver, or to have done any wrong to his neighbours by word or deed, so that the Congregation be thereby offended; he shall advertise him, that he presume not to come to the Lord's Table, until he have openly declared himself to have truly repented and amended his former evil lips, that the Congregation may thereby be satisfied, and that he hath recompensed the parties to whom he hath done wrong; or at least declarc himself to be in full purpose so to do, as soon as he conveniently may.. # The same order shall the Minister 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 know them to be reconciled. And if one of the parties, so at variance, bé contont to forgive from the bottom of his heart all that the other hath trespassed against him, and to make amends for that wherein he himself hath offended ; 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 that is obstinate: Provided that every Minister só repelling any, as is herein specified, shall be obliged to give an account

of the same to the Ordinary, as soon as conveniently may be. 1 The Table, at the Communion-time, having a fair white linen cloth upon it, shall

stand in the body of the Church, or in the Chancel ; and the Minister, standing at ishe north sido of the table, or where Morning and Evening Prayer are appointed
