    Evening everyone

    I have been wondering where or what inosired the common worship texts?

    When I go to Confession the vicar says its from the BCP in the visitation of the sick...I see the note of absolution there but not the form of confusion in the common worship text.

    Great question. I am not an expert on 20th century liturgical revision, and I am not a fan of it either. The 1662 is the pinnacle of liturgical perfection as far as I'm concerned. But there are a bunch of users here who know more about how Common Worship came to be. But fyi, the 1662 BCP remains the canonically standard liturgical text for the Church of England.

    Well, the Vicar is being generous about the explanation - the 1662's Visitation of the Sick provides the rubrics and absolution necessary for a private confession, but there was no actual rite for it at the time. And that kind of makes sense, as private confession is not common prayer.

    The texts for Common Worship (2000) are inspired by several sources probably throughout the Anglican Communion. Before it was the Alternative Service Book from 1980 or thenabouts, and I'm sure it compiled a few other variant sources from modern African and American liturgical developments also.

    Just remember private confession is something you can avail yourself to but the general confession and absolution is just as good.

    CONFESSION

    In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

    Faithful

    I have sinned against the All-holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Truly, I have sinned against God. Therefore, I confess in the presence of God, and before the holy Birthgiver-of-God, and before all the saints, and before you holy father, all the sins which I have committed. For I have sinned in thought, word and deed, willingly and unwillingly, knowingly and unknowingly; I have sinned against God.

    Priest

    May God grant you forgiveness.

    Faithful

    I have also sinned by the seven-fold transgressions of the deadly sins: by pride and all its forms, envy and all its forms, anger and all its forms, sloth and all its forms, covetousness and all its forms, gluttony and all its forms, and lust and all its forms; I have sinned against God.

    Priest

    May God grant you forgiveness.

    Faithful

    I have also sinned against all the commandments of God, both prescribed and prohibited; for I have neither performed the prescribed commands, nor abstained from that which is prohibited. I accepted the laws, but was slothful in keeping them. I was

    invited into the order of Christianity, but was found unworthy of it by my works: knowing the evil, I willingly followed it, and from good works I purposely kept away; woe to me! woe to me! woe to me! Which of my misdeeds shall I recount, or which shall I confess? For my sins are innumerable, my iniquities are unspeakable, my pains are unrelievable, and my wounds are incurable; I have sinned against God.

    Priest

    May God grant you forgiveness.

    Faithful

    Holy father, I hold you as reconciler and intercessor with the only begotten Son of God, that by the authority given to you, you will release me of the bonds of my sins, I implore you.

    ABSOLUTION
    Priest
    Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.

    May God the lover of humanity have mercy upon you and grant you forgiveness of all your sins, both those which you have confessed as well as those you have forgotten. With this priestly authority and by the divine command that “whatever you loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven,” and with the same words, I absolve you of all participation in your sins; in thought, in word, and in deed, in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit, and re-instate you in the sacraments of the Holy Church, that whatever good you do may be accounted to you as works of goodness and for the glory of the live to come. Amen.

    I actually prefer the Armenian General Confession. Just a bit more detailed.
