THIRD DIVISION

OF

THE COMMUNION OFFICE.

The Canon or Sacrificial Part.

This is the principal act of the whole Service. Be very attentive

and very reverent. The bread which God's Priest breaks, becomes the Body of Christ; and the cup which he blesses, the Blood of Christ. This wonderful effect is brought to pass by the operation of the Holy Ghost, and Christ's own words, repeated by the Priest.

THE ACT OF CONSECRATION.
LMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, Who of
Thy tender mercy didst give Thine only Son
Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the Cross for

our redemption; Who made there (by His one oblation of Himself once offered) a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction, for the sins of the whole world; and did institute, and in His Holy Gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that His precious death, until His coming again; Hear us, O merciful Father, we most humbly beseech Thee; and grant that we receiving these Thy creatures of bread and wine, according to Thy Son our
