THE RATIFICATION. THIS Book of Articles before rehearsed, is again ap
proved, and allowed to holden and executed within this Realm, by the affent and consent of our Sovereign Lady ELIZABETH, by the. Grace of God, of England, France, and Ireland, Queen, Defender of the Faith, &c. Which Articles were deliberately read, and confirmed again by the subscription of the hands of the Archbishops and BiJhops of the upper house, and by the subscription of the whole Clergy of the nether house in their Convocation, in the Year of our Lord 1517.
'H E usual Reason which Men asign for their not coming fo often to the Holy Sacra
ment as they would do, is their Fear of eating and drinking unworthily, and consequently, of incurring their own Damnation thereby. The Designi then of this hort Discourse is, to shew what that Sacramento 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 : For which Purpose, I conceive nd Rule, no Infruction 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 conduding Part of this Discourse contains Prayers and Meditations preparative to a Sacramental Preparation ; and though they be few in Number, yet I hope they fully answer all those several Parts of a Communicant's Duty, accorcha ing to that Rule and Standard which our Church has fixed for our Guide and Companion to the holy Altar. By the Addition of those Psalms, and proper Lessons annexed to each particular Prayer and Meditation, the Communicant may enlarge his Devotions to what Degree or Length be pleaseth. By which Method you have as much Matter for actual Préparation in this little Book, as in any other Discourse of this Nature whatsoever.
