So likewise the Father is Almighty *, the Son Al. mighty : and the Holy Ghost Almighty.
And yet they are not three Almighties : but one Almighty.
So the Father is God *, the Son is God : and the Hóly Ghost is God.
And yet they are not three Gods : buti óne God.
So likewise the Father is Lord*, the Son Lord : and the Holy Ghost Lord.
And yet not three Lords : but m óne Lord.
For like as we are compelled by the Christian vérīty : to acknowledge every Person by himself to bě Gód and Lord ;
So are we forbidden by the Catholic Religion : to say, There be threé Gods, or threé Lords.
The Father is made of none : neither created, nor begotten.
The Son is of the Father àlone : not made, nor created, but begotten.
The Holy Ghost is of the Father, and of the Son : neither made, nor created, nor begotten*, but proceeding.
So there is one Father, not three Fathers *; one Son, not three Sons : one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts.

THE CREED OF ST. ATHANASIUS.
And in this Trinity, none is afore or after other : none is greater, or less than another;
But the whole three Persons are co-eternal together : and m co-equal.
So that in all things, as is ăforesaid : the Unity in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity* is to be worshipped.
He therefore that will be saved : must thus think of thě Trínity.
Furthermore *, it is necessary to everlasting salvation : that he also believe rightly * the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For the right Faith is *, that we believe and conféss : that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and man;
God, of the Substance of the Father *, begotten before the worlds : and Man, of the Substance of his Mother *, born in the world ;
Perfect God, and perfect Man : of a reasonable soul and human flesh subsisting;
Equal to the Father, as touching his Godhead : and inferior to the Father*, as touching his Manhood.
Who although he be God and Man : yet he is not two, but one Christ;
One*; not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh: but by taking of the Manhood into God;
One altogether* ; not by confusion of Substance : but by únity of Person.
m See Rule IV., Preface.
For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man : so God and Man is one Chríst;
Who suffered for our salvation : descended into hell*, rose again the thírd dăy from the dead.
He ascended into heaven *, he sitteth on the right hand of the Father, God Almighty : from whence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
At whose coming all men shall rise again with their bodies : and shall give account for their own works.
And they that have done good shall go into life everlasting : and they that have done evil into évěr. lásting fire.
This is the Catholick Faith : which except a man believe faithfully*, he cannot be saved.
Glory be to the Father *, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning *, is now, and ever shall be : world withoŭt énd. Amen.
THE FIRST DAY.
BLESSED is the man that hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly*, nor stood in the way of sinners : and hath not sat in the seat of the scórnful.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord : and in his law will he exercise himself day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the waterside : that will bring forth his fruit in due season.
His leaf also shall not wither : and look *, whatsoever he doeth, it shall prosper.
As for the ungodly *, it is not so with them : but they are like the chaff *, which the wind scattereth away from the face of the earth.
Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand in
the judgment : neither the sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
But the Lord knoweth the way of thě righteous : and the way of the ungodly shall pérish.
Psalm ii. Quare fremuerunt gentes ? (EASTER DAY. MORN.)
Why do the heathen so furiously rage together : and why do the people imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth stand up*, and the rulers take counsel together : against the Lord, and against his Anointed.
Let us break their bonds åsunder : and cast away their córds from us.
He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh them to scorn : the Lord shall have them in derísion.
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath : and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Yet have I set my King : upon my holy hill of Sion.
I will preach the law*, whereof the Lord hath said unto me : Thou art my Son *, this day have I begotten thee.
Desire of me*, and I shall give thee the heathen
