A thanks-giuing for the conuersion of an excommu∣nicate person, or other publike offender after penance.

WE thanke the mercie and goodnesse of our God, through Iesus Christ our Lord, for the conuersion & pati∣ent penance doing of this our sister, whereby she hath not so much endu∣red the reproch and infamie of hir owne sinnes, as in deede she hath Page  562 confounded and ouercome Satan hir deadlie foe, who went about to make hir his continuall slaue: and by whose subtile sleights and euill suggestions, she hath heretofore beene disobedient to thy holie lawes, and wholsome admonitions of thy Church. And now, O Lord, seeing that the spirit of our Lord Iesus Christ hath so farre preuailed in hir, that she is returned to our societie; let it please thee for the obedience of the same our Lord Iesus Christ so to accept hir, that hir former disobedience and sinnes be neuer laid to hir charge, but that she may increase in all goodnesse, till Satan finallie be troden vnder hir feete and ours, by the power of our Lord Iesus Christ, to whom with thee and the holie Spirit, be all honor and glorie now and euer,

Amen.
