Discussing the Exhortations

The Exhortation in the ’79 prayer book is one of the most under used parts of the book. That is a shame. It is a beautiful and edifying part of our liturgy. But I am willing to bet that more parishes have public recitation of the Noon Office, than read the Exhortations once a year.

 A direct result of that lack, might I suggest, is the heteropraxy of communion without baptism. If the Bishops want to stop this practice they could not do better than to require their priests to read the exhortation during conformation masses, where they are present to see their instructions fulfilled.

In any event, the exhortations herein are from the 1928 prayer book.
