14. THE EXIORTATION BEFORE COMMUNION. Dear Friends in Christ! In order that you may receive this holy Sacrament worthily it becomes you diligently to consider what you must now believe and do. From the words of Christ: “This is my Body, which is given for you”; “This is my Blood, which is shed for you for the remission of sins”; you should believe that Jesus Christ is Himself present with His Body and Blood, as the words declare. From Christ's words, “For the remission of sins”, you should, in the next place, believe that Jesus Christ bestows upon you His Body and Blood to confirm unto you the remission of all your sins. And, finally, you should do as Christ commands you when He says: “Take, eat”; “Drink ye all of it”; and, “This do in remembrance of me''. If you believe these words of Christ, and do as He therein has commanded, then have you rightly examined yourselves and may worthily eat Christ's Body and drink Éis Blood for the remission of your sins. You should, also, unite in giving thanks to Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for so great a gift, and should love one another with a pure heart, and thus, with the whole Christian Church, have comfort and joy in Christ our Lord. To this end may God the Father grant you His grace; through the same, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. [ Then shall the Minister say:
Let us all pray. (The Communicants kneel.
