Calvin's absolutions

Facebook tells me they took the following form:

"To all those who repent in this way and seek Jesus Christ for their salvation, I declare that absolution of sins has been given in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.'"

Or, in the French Reformed liturgy: "To all those who repent and seek their salvation in Jesus Christ, we declare in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, that God forgives now their sins."
