In the office for the baptism (Protestant Episcopal Church) of those of riper years, the questions proposed by the minister to the candidates are to be considered as addressed to them severally, and the answers to be made accordingly. By this rubric every candidate is to view himself as isolated and alone, although the minister is not obliged to distinctly propose the questions to every individual. In the Order of Confirmation there is a rubric somewhat analogous. The candidates "kneeling before the bishop, he shall lay his hands upon the head of every one severally, saying," etc.
