Being the third under the Sovereign Pontiff, Pius IV., celebrated on the fourteenth day of May, MDLXII.


The sacred and holy, ocecumenical and general Synod of Trent,--lawfully assembled in the Holy Ghost, the Same Legatesof the Apostolic See presiding therein,--has, for cerain just and good reasons, thought fit to prorogue, and doth hereby prorogue, to the Thursday after the approaching solemnity of Corpus Christi, which will be the day before the nones of June, those decrees which were to have been on this day ordained and sanctioned in the present Session; and It notifies to all men, that, on the said day, a Session will be held and celebrated. Meanwhile, supplication is to be made to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the author of peace, that He would sanctify the hearts of all; that, by His help, the holy Synod may be enabled, both now and ever, to study and to perform those things which shall be unto His praise and glory.
