Then all kneeling, say the following Confession and Litany: 0

ALMIGHTY Lord of heaven and earth, we confess that

we have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, through our fault, through our great and grievous fault; and we present ourselves before Thy eyes, humbly beseeching Thee not to consider the multitude of our offences, but to remember Thy infinite mercy. Give us, O Lord, a true contrition for all the sins we have committed against Thee, that being turned from all our evil ways, we may, by a sincere repentance, obtain Thy peace; for the sake of the merits of Thy blessed Son's most sacred passion, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God the Father of heaven, God the Son, Redeemer of the world, God the Holy Ghost,

Have mercy on us.
O Holy Trinity, three Persons and one God,
Have mercy on us.
O Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ have mercy on us, and pardon our sins.
Through Thy inflamed desire to redeem mankind,
Have mercy on us.

Through Thy humility in washing, as on this day, the feet of Thy disciples, and even those of the traitor Judas, Have

mercy on us. Through Thy ineffable love, manifested, as on this day, in the institution of the Communion of Thy most precious body and blood,

Have mercy on us.

Through the prayer Thou didst, as on this day, thrice repeat in the garden of Olives, when in Thy most bitter

agony

Thou didst sweat great drops of blood falling to the ground, Have

mercy on us. Through the blows, buffets, and opprobrious usage, which Thou the God of heaven didst endure the night before Thy crucifixion,

Spare us, we beseech Thee, and deliver us, O Lord.
From all evil, from all sin, &c.

Then continue with the usual Litany, &c. (page 47), to the

end of the Thursday Morning Prayers, adding after the Lord's Prayer the following Collect :

Collect for Maunday Thursday. 0

CHRIST, God over all blessed for ever, who didst endure

to be treacherously betrayed by wicked Judas, who didst adjudge him the punishment of his guilt, but didst also award the penitent thief the reward of his confession; grant us, we beseech Thee, the effects of Thy mercy, that as in Thy passion Thou gavest to each different retribution according to their deserts, so Thou wouldst take from us our old errors, and grant us the grace of Thy resurrection; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.
