BISHOP OWEN AND THE REVIVAL. The Lord Bishop of St. David's has sent to every clergyman in his diocese a copy of the Archbishop of Canterbury's pastoral letter regarding special prayers to God for an out- pouring of the Holy Spirit. With the pastoral letter the Bishop has sent the following Middleton Hall, Llanarthney, R S.O., "May 25. Reverend and dear Brother,—I append a pastoral letter which the Archbishop of Can- terbury has addressed to the bishop of each diocese in the province, and I am sure that you will be thankful that an exhortation has been thus given to the whole Church to unite in special prayer to God for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit among us, and for the strengthening Of our hold as Christians upon the deeper realities of our faith. We have just reason to be thankful to Almighty God that the Church ir, this diocese has not been left without par- ticipating in the blessing which He has given °ur country in a revival of religion, and we °ught at Whitsuntide to give Him humble and hearty thanks for His mercy to us, while renewing our prayers for a continuance of the blessings of His Holy Spirit. As in the Pastoral letter on the religious revival which I addressed to you on the 28th of December last, So now I think it best to leave particulars of Arties and methods for special prayer at Whit- suntide to local arrangements, but where a special form of intercessory service is desired I mention as helpful a form drawn up by the Dean of Bangor, and published by Messrs. Jarvis and Foster, Bangor, of which a Welsh version has been published by the Welsh Church Press Company, Lampeter, and the use of which I authorise in this diocese. I also authorise, where it is so desired, the use of one or more of the following Collects of Divine Service, after the Collect for the day, from Ascension Day to Trinity Sunday:The Collect for Whitsunday, the Collect of Quin- quagesima Sunday, the first Collect in the Holy Communion Service, the Collect for the Nine- teenth Sunday after Trinity, the Collect for the Ninth Sunday after Trinity.-I am, your faith- ful servant in Christ, "J. ST. DAVID'S."
