Prologue
The Prolocutor presented the following address, which was ADOPTED by the Synod standing:
Text
To the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty:
This General Synod of The Anglican Church of Canada, assembled in its twentieth triennial session meeting in Montreal under the Presidency of His Grace, the Archbishop of Quebec, desires to renew to Your Majesty its deep and abiding loyalty to the Throne and its devotion to Your Majesty's person.
Coming as we do from all parts of this Dominion, we know the happiness which the visit of Your Majesty and your husband His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh brought to the people of Canada. Only two months ago Your Majesty, with the President of the United States, opened the St. Lawrence Seaway, an event of outstanding importance to our country and its economic development. On that historic occasion, millions of our people were able to see and hear Your Majesty through the modern miracle of radio and television, and afterwards, in your journeying throughout this this vast country, people in cities, towns and hamlets in East and West and in the far North, were able to see Your Majesty in person as their Queen, and to realize afresh that we are part of a world-wide Commonwealth of nations living in freedom and peace.
Upon the clergy of this Church is laid the duty of prayer for Your Majesty and for the Commonwealth and Empire. To pray for Your Majesty and for the continued unity and prosperity of the Commonwealth is a task well within the compass of our loyalty. In it we lead a loyal and devoted laity many of whom proved that loyalty by service in Your Majesty's Forces, as did many of the clergy.
That Your Majesty will long reign over us as our Queen is the fervent prayer of all your Canadian people and in presenting our humble duty to Your Majesty this General Synod joins with all the people of Canada in gratitude to Almighty God for the leadership of Your Majesty and the members of the Royal Family and for the maintenance of those high ideals of life which are the fruit of the Christian faith.
[CARRIED in both houses.]
Notes
Greetings
A telegram was then read from the Prime Minister of Canada as follows:
I wish to extend my warmest greetings and good wishes to the House of Bishops, the Lower House, and General Synod, as the twentieth session opens. The momentous decisions in the choice of Primate and the revision of the Book of Common Prayer, concerning as they do the two million Anglicans in this country, carry much significance far beyond your own communion.
All Canadians wish you well. (signed) John G. Diefenbaker.

Prologue
Moved by Brig. A.E. McB. Bell-Irving, seconded by The Ven. D.P. Watney
"That Whereas, to quote the Original Preface (1549) of the Book of Common Prayer, 'St. Paul would have such language spoken to the people in the Church, as they might understand, and have profit by hearing the same';
"And Whereas it has been the endeavour of the compilers and revisers of the Canadian Book of Common Prayer, in the quoting of Holy Scripture, to use such translations as by common consent are most acceptable to, and understandable by, those who are to worship with the book;
"Now Therefore Be It Resolved That this General Synod call to the attention of the Prayer Book Revision Committee the New English Bible recently published, and suggest that consideration be given by the Committee to the adoption of this translation for all quotations from the New Testament in subsequent editions of the Canadian Book of Common Prayer; and that similar consideration be given in regard to the quotations from the Old Testament as and when the Old Testament New English Bible Translation becomes available.
Text
That the motion of Brig. AE. McB. Bell-Irving regarding the use of the new English Bible in subsequent editions of the Canadian Book of Common Prayer be referred to the Upper House. CARRIED in both Houses.
Notes
The Synod stood for a suitable prayer by the Primate, commemorating the 300th anniversary of the Prayer Book of 1662.
