Canon XI.144144    [This canon is rejected as spurious. Lardner, Credib., ii. p. 633.]

Weeping145145    πρόσκλαυσις, discipline. takes place without the gate of the oratory; and the offender standing there ought to implore the faithful as they enter to offer up prayer on his behalf. Waiting on the word,146146    ἀκρόασις. again, takes place within the gate in the porch,147147    ἐν τῷ νάρθηκι. where the offender ought to stand until the catechumens depart, and thereafter he should go forth. For let him hear the Scriptures and doctrine, it is said, and then be put forth, and reckoned unfit for the privilege of prayer. Submission,148148    ὑπόπτωσις. again, is that one stand within the gate of the temple, and go forth along with the catechumens. Restoration149149    σύστασις. is that one be associated with the faithful, and go not forth with the catechumens; and last of all comes the participation in the holy ordinances.150150    ἁγιασμάτων.
