    In the Burial service, the possibility that a deceased person who has died in the faith may nevertheless not be counted amongst God's electis not entertained.

A Bill for Uniformity passed the Commons in Julybut this was then delayed by the revision which was in progress. There is an oblation of sorts but it is not the same as in the Roman Rite in which the priest offers the sacrifice of Christ to God using bread and wine and by association the congregation during the consecration.

    The Presbyterians could achieve toleration of their practices without such a right being given to Roman Catholics and without, therefore, their having to submit to the Church of England, even with a liturgy more acceptable to them. In the High Church Archbishop of Canterbury, William Laud, had attempted to impose on the Scottish church a book which was much more akin to that of in its doctrinal outlook. Buchanan, B. Their major objections exceptions were: firstly, that it was improper for lay people to take any vocal part in prayer as in the Litany or Lord's Prayerother than to say "amen"; secondly, that no set prayer should exclude the option of an extempore alternative from the minister; thirdly, that the minister should have the option to omit part of the set liturgy at his discretion; fourthly, that short collects should be replaced by longer prayers and exhortations; and fifthly, that all surviving "Catholic" ceremonial should be removed. There is an oblation of sorts but it is not the same as in the Roman Rite in which the priest offers the sacrifice of Christ to God using bread and wine and by association the congregation during the consecration.

    Is there any reason to think that the inertia which inheres in all large bodies, and to a singularly marked degree in our own Communion, could be overcome? The real motive was the removal from the service books of the doctrines rejected by the Protestant Reformers. Only minor amendments were made in the Book of Common Prayer after in England. We American Churchmen have two already; let us beware of adding a third. They also threw out a clause, introduced by the Lords, giving the Crown power to dispense with obligations of the Bill. Enjoy But need the enrichment of the Prayer Book--such enrichment as has been described, necessarily involve an unwieldiness in the volume, or, what would be still worse, an overflow into a supplement?
