Sentences (Opening) 

There were no opening sentences in the 1549 Prayer Book. Opening sentences preceded the confession of sin at Morning and Evening Prayer in the 1552 BCP. These sentences were penitential. Subsequent revisions of the Prayer Book came to include general sentences, and sentences appropriate for particular seasons, days, or occasions.
