an office in the Liturgy of the Church of England, which contains God's threatenings against impenitent sinners. It is directed to be used on the first day of Lent, and at other times, as the ordinary shall appoint. It is called Comrnination from the opening Exhortation to Repentance, in which the curses of God against sin are recited. The office for "A Commination, or denouncing of God's anger and judgments against sinners," was left out of the American Prayer-book, but the three concluding prayers of that office were introduced into the service for Ash Wednesday, immediately after the Collect for that day. See Procter on Common Prayer, 429; Hook, Church Dictionary, s.v.; Eden, Churchman's Dictionary, s.v.
