Excerpt from The Priest's Book: A Manual of Offices
The Priest's Book contains those Offices and Benedictions which are within the power of a Priest to perform - the line being strictly drawn between Parochial and Pontifical offices, a dis tinction plainly set forth in ancient Liturgies. The prayers in Commemoration of the Faithful Departed are drawn and compiled from the Clem entine Liturgy, the Liturgy of S. James (greek and Syriac), Liturgy of the Armenian Church, Liturgy of 8. Mark, and Coptic Liturgy. The Editor is indebted to innumerable authors, known and anonymous, for the compiled offices, and de sires to express his grateful acknowledgments especially to the Bishop of Albany, to the Rev. Dr. Dean, Chancellor, and to the Rev. Dr. Hills, of Burlington, for both material and helpful en couragement.
All saints' cathedral albany, N. Y., festival OF all saints, 1888.
