name of God the Father almighty, who created thee: in the name of Jesus Christ the Son of the living God, who suffered for thee: in the name of the Holy Ghost, who sanctified thee: in the name of the Angels, Archangels; Thrones, and Dominations, Cherubim and Seraphim : in the name of the Pairiarchs and Prophets, of the holy Apolles and Evangelists, of the holy Martyrs and Confeffors, of the holy Monks and Hermits, of the holy Virgins, and of all the Saints of God, let thy place be this day in peace, and thy abode in holy Sion. Thro’the fame: Chrijt our Lord. R. Amen.

PRAYER. Deus misericors.
God of mercy! O God of goodness ! O God,

who according to the multitude of thy mercies forgivest the fins of fuch as repent, and graciously remittest the guilt of their paft offences; mercifully look down on this thy fervant N. and grant him (or her a full discharge from all his or her fins, who most earnestly begs it of thee. Renew, O moft merciful Father, whatever is corrupt in him, [or her] through human frailty, or by the deceit of the Devil; and being united to the body of thy Church, make him (or her) one of thy redeemed. Take pity, O Lord, on his or her] fighs, take pity on his [or her] tears, and admit him (or her] to the sacrament of thy reconciliation, who hath no hopes, but in thee. Thro' Christ onr Lord. R. Amen.

PRAYER. Commendo te.
Recommend thee, dear brother, [or fister] to al-

mighty God, and leave thee to his mercy, whose creature thou art; that having paid the common debt, by surrendering thy soul, thou may'st return to thy Maker, who formed thee out of the earth. May therefore the noble company of Angels meet thy soul at it's departure; may the court of the Apostles come to thee; may the triumphant army of glorious Martyrs meet thee; may the crowd of Confelsors with lilies in their hands encompass thee; may the joyful choir of Virgins receive thee; and may a happy reft be thy portion in the company of the Patriarchs : may Christ Jesus appear to thee with a mild and cheerful countenance, and give thee place among thofe, who are to be in his presence for ever. May thou be a stranger to the horrors of darkness, to the gnaihing of teeth in flames, and to excruciating torments. May ugly Satan with his attendants fly from thee: may he tremble at thy arrival accompanied with Angels, and fly to hide bimself in the dreadful chaos of eternal night. Let God arise, and his enemies be put to fight: and may all who


hate him, Ay before his face. Let them vanish like smoke; as wax is melted by the fire, so let sinners perilh at the fight of God: and let the righteous feast and rejoice in the presence of God. May therefore all the legions of hell be confounded and put to shame, and none of the ministers of Satan presume to stop thee in thy journey. May Chrift, who was crucified for thee, deliver thee from torments. May Christ, who vouchsafed to die for thee, deliver thee from eternal death. May Chrift, the Son of the living God, place thee in the eververdant meadows of paradise; and may that true Shepherd ever reckon thee among his sheep. May he absolve thee from all thy fins, and place thee on his right hand, together with his elect. May thou fee thy Redeemer face to face; and, being always in his presence, see the truth which is revealed to the eyes of the blessed. Being thus placed among the bleffed, may'st thou for ever enjoy the sweetness of divine contemplation. R. Amen.
