On this broad foundation of infallibility, the Houses laid their second act, to provide for the uniformity of common prayer and service in the church, and administration of the sacraments. They adopted the second service book of Edward the Sixth, with some changes to make it more palatable to the,catholics This holy little book, was now restored to the church of England. We embraced that book, conti nues the zealous bishop of Ely, with open arms, and not without thanks to God, who had preserved to us such a treasure, and restored it to us in safety.4 Like the first statute, this, with its prescribed liturgy, was guarded by penalties. After the ensuing feast of John the Baptist, all the inhabitants Of the realm were diligently and faithfully, on Sundays and feast days, to appear at their parish church, there to join in common prayer: twelve pence was the fine for absence. But if any should be so wicked as to defame this holy little book, or use in public any other prayers to the God of heaven, or refuse to use any rite, ceremony, matins, evensong, or administration of the sacraments, or dained therein: then shall such person be imprisoned for half a year, and deprived of all his emoluments.
