<bkdv3 n="5428">youth in their Catechisme, grauely and reuerently to minister his most
<bkdv3 n="5429">holy Sacraments, prudently also to choose out such Homilies as bee
<bkdv3 n="5430">most meete for the time, and for the more agreeable instruction of the
<bkdv3 n="5431">people committed to your charge, with such discretion, that where the

<bkdv3 n="5435">fall in order to be read vpon the Sundayes or Holy dayes, which were
<bkdv3 n="5436">better to be changed with some other of the New Testament of more
<bkdv3 n="5437">edification, it shalbe well done to spend your time to consider well of
<bkdv3 n="5438">such Chapters before hand, whereby your prudence and diligence in
<bkdv3 n="5439">your office may appeare, so that your people may haue cause to glorifie
<bkdv3 n="5440">God for you, and be the readier to embrace your labours, to your bet{\-}
