Minijier. Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath-day. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all that thou hast to do; but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God. In it thou shalt do no manner os work, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy maid-servant, thy cattle, and the stranger that is within thy gates.

7he ColleEl of the Day, The Epistle. The Gospel *T Believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven \_ and earth, and of all things visible and invisible:

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, Begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of very God, Begotten, not made, Being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made: Who for us men, and fcr our salvation came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made Man, And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, And fitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he mall come again with gory to judge both the quick and the dead: Whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord and giver os life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; Who with the Fa-: ther and the Son together, is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the prophets. And 1 believe one Catholick and Apostolick Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins,
