Seite 387 - THE Body of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, which was given for thee, preserve thy body and soul unto everlasting life. Take and eat this in remembrance that CHRIST died for thee, and feed on Him in thy heart by faith with thanksgiving.
Seite 423 - Be of good comfort, master Ridley, and play the man. We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.
Seite 328 - ... these many years passed, this godly and decent order of the ancient fathers hath been so altered, broken, and neglected, by planting in uncertain stories and legends, with multitude of responds, verses, vain repetitions, commemorations, and synodals ; that commonly when any book of the Bible was begun, after three Or four chapters were read out, all the rest were unread.

Down with the old honour due to God, and up with the new god's honour.
Seite 375 - There is one that passeth all the other, and is the most diligent prelate and preacher in all England. And will ye know who it is? I will tell you: It is the devil. He is the most diligent preacher of all other ; he is never out of his diocese...
