After The Third Collect

£19.99

Product description

Preface to the Third Edition

After the Third Collect is not a new work; it is a third edition of Memorials upon Several Occasions. The new title has been given it to meet complaints that the more archaic one failed to make clear its purpose and contents. But the book has been revised and enlarged; amongst its new matter are two sections, one intended to assist prayer in the vestry, the other to aid the preparation of ‘special services.’ Only by courtesy indeed can the new title cover such additions; but if they are useful that will not be refused.

The book’s two ambitions abide. The first, to provide a flexible collection of prayers which will give the parish priest all that he ordinarily requires for the conduct of corporate intercession, in a single volume, orderly arranged. Secondly, to keep standards high, as near as may be to those of the Prayer Book, in structure, dignity, expression, and rhythm. Language has a part too little regarded in worship: to exalt, or to vulgarize it.

The War 1939–45 discovered or begat some good prayers, pertinent still in a world praying for peace; they have been included. The contemporary Church asks also for new forms such as the acts of dedication so frequently desired in ‘special services’ by military, social, educational, and other units; no liturgical type is harder to frame or more important to frame well, but the book tries to make a beginning of help here. How ancient, how modern, how universal, how local are the prayers of the collection, the Index of Sources will show. The living Church has no continuity more secure and lovely than that of its intercessory prayer; and if this book, in its own modest place, be found fit for use alongside the agelong Liturgy, its compiler will indeed be thankful.
