Absolution

At Strasbourg, Calvin used the following words of absolution in his French liturgy, which he composed working from Bucer’s German model:

Let each of you confess that you are truly a sinner who must humble himself before God and believe that the heavenly Father will be gracious to you in Jesus Christ. To all who have repentance and who seek Jesus Christ for their salvation, I pronounce forgiveness in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
