Speach to Parliament, March 1609

We being now in the middest of this season appointed for penitence and prayer, it hath so fallen out, that these two last dayes have bene spent in a farre other sort of exercise, I meane in Eucharisticke Sacrifice, and gratulation of thankes, presented unto mee by both the parts of this body of Parliament: and therefore to make up the number of three, (which is the number of Trinitie, and perfection) I have thought good to make this the third Day, to be spent in this exercise.
