The General Confession
Illuminated manuscript print
10 x 12 & 5/8 inches
Artist: Nancy Wilds
Ms. Wilds writes, "this superb example of the matchless grace of the Prayer Book text is illuminated with two contrasting miniatures. Above, a noble woman prays while outside in the twilight the sheep can be seen on distant hills. Below, a bishop gives absolution to kneeling peasants signifying that God's grace is available to men of all stations."
This birthday prayer may be found on pages 6 and 23 of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.
