Chapter 13: How the Morning Office Is to Be Said on Weekdays (Cont.)

The Morning and Evening Offices 
should never be allowed to pass
 
without the Superior saying the Lord’s Prayer
 
in its place at the end
 
so that all may hear it,
 
on account of the thorns of scandal which are apt to spring up.
 
Thus those who hear it,
 
being warned by the covenant which they make in that prayer
 
when they say, “Forgive us as we forgive,”
 
may cleanse themselves of faults against that covenant.

But at the other Offices 
let the last part only of that prayer be said aloud,
 
so that all may answer, “But deliver us from evil.
