THROWBACK THURSDAY: 460 years ago, in April 1559, the Act of Uniformity was passed by the Parliament of England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. This law restored the Book of Common Prayer to its place as the official book of prayer and worship for the Church of England, which is the mother church of Anglicans worldwide. Prior to this, Queen Mary I had restored the Roman Catholicism as the state religion of England after she was crowned queen in 1553. The 1559 Book of Common Prayer (or Prayer Book) was based on the 1552 Prayer Book which was produced by Thomas Cranmer, the first Archbishop of Canterbury during the English Reformation, with only a few key alterations. This 1559 Prayer Book was the foundation of the 1662 Prayer Book which has been used throughout the Anglican churches across the world before local liturgies were written in the 20th century. In the Diocese of Sabah, a slightly-modified version of the 1662 Holy Communion service was translated and used in all our churches until 1984 when our own DOS Holy Communion liturgy was published.

KELAS SEJARAH KHAMIS: 460 tahun lalu, pada bulan April 1559, Akta Keseragaman telah diluluskan oleh Parliamen England semasa pemerintahan Ratu Elizabeth I. Undang-undang ini mengembalikan Buku Doa Umum sebagai buku doa dan sembahyang rasmi untuk Gereja England, yang merupakan gereja ibu Anglikan sedunia. Sebelum ini, Ratu Mary I telah memulihkan agama Roman Katolik sebagai agama rasmi England setelah baginda dinobatkan pada tahun 1553. Asas Buku Doa Umum 1559 adalah Buku Doa 1552 yang dihasilkan oleh Thomas Cranmer, Archbisyop Canterbury pertama sewaktu Reformasi Inggeris, dengan hanya beberapa pindaan yang penting. Buku Doa 1559 inilah yang menjadi asas Buku Doa 1662 yang telah digunakan oleh gereja-gereja Anglikan di seluruh dunia sebelum liturgi-liturgi tempatan digubal pada abad ke-20. Di Diosis Sabah, satu versi Kebaktian Perjamuan Suci 1662 yang diubahsuai sedikit telah diterjemahkan dan digunakan di semua gereja kita sehingga tahun 1984. Pada tahun tersebut, liturgi Perjamuan Suci Diosis kita sendiri telah diterbitkan.
