Notes
[Text of Eucharistic Prayer No. 3]
STATEMENT FROM THE DOCTRINE AND WORSHIP COMMITTEE OF GENERAL SYNOD
This prayer was prepared for the Doctrine and Worship Committee by the Reverend Paul Gibson. It impressed the Doctrine and Worship Committee as being a valid expression of the Messianic hope of Israel enshrined in the great prophetic tradition. The following 4 paragraphs are the author's own commentary upon this Rite, and express, as far as the Doctrine and Worship Committee are concerned, an excellent exposition of the prayer.
1. The structure of the prayer is based on the classical pattern of a series of thanksgivings for creation, salvation and covenant, which finds its culmination in the repetition of the dominical actions.
2. The language and symbolism of the prayer is almost exclusively biblical: the creation symbolism in the first paragraph is drawn from Genesis; salvation symbolism in the second paragraph is drawn from Exodus, with a reference to the prophets and the saints. The salvation theology of the third paragraph is taken from II Isaiah; this theology combines three themes: salvation through suffering, the Servant of God as a a corporate personality, and the universal accessibility of grace. The anamnesis paragraph commemorates the resurrection of Christ as the exalting act of the Father by which the voluntary suffering of the Servant of God was justified and vindicated: it also ties his exaltation to Isaiah's introduction of the Servant as a 'light to the nations' (42.6) and the one who 'will bring justice to the nations' (42.1). The epiclesis paragraph links the prayer for the action of the Spirit in each particular celebration of the eucharist to Jesus' anointing by the Spirit to take and fulfil the ministry described in Isaiah 61:1-4 (cf. Luke 4: 18-21); the prayer asks that the communicants may share in his ministry and move towards the realization of the final purposes of God described by Amos in terms of justice and righteousness (5.24) and, eschatologically in Revelation, in terms of the heavenly city which comes down to earth (21.2).
3. While the prayer does not reflect the atonement theologies of later centuries (of which there are many), it is nevertheless an authentic expression of a biblical theology of salvation, possibly the theology which illuminated Jesus' followers in their understanding of his role. In effect, the prayer approaches the foundation events of Christianity from the point of view of the biblical tradition which defined the environment of Jesus and his disciples rather than from the point of view of subsequent theological reflection. The biblical base of the prayer does not invalidate subsequent reflection and its liturgical expression however, such reflection should not prevent liturgical concentration on the biblical context of the Christ event.
4. The Sanctus is placed at the end of the prayer rather than in the middle. Some serious scholarship suggests that there is precedent for this arrangement which stresses the eschatological nature of the eucharistic banquet as an anticipation of the Kingdom.
It should be pointed out that this prayer has one thing in common with all eucharistic prayers, that is, it does not explicitly set forth all the aspects and facets of the theology of creation, redemption, and the Holy Spirit that might appropriately find a place in a eucharistic prayer. This is as true of the official eucharistic prayer in the Book of Common Prayer as it is of any other such prayer.
PREFACE
In May 1979 the National Executive Council of the Anglican Church of Canada passed a resolution to approve the printing of the 'Third Canadian Eucharist', with the amendment "that this service be available for distribution, with the exception of Eucharistic Prayer No. 3, and that Eucharistic Prayer No. 3 be referred to the House of Bishops for further study, and that this be referred back to the National Executive Council prior to presentation to General Synod." At a meeting in November the House of Bishops outlined seven elements which they would expect to see in any Eucharistic Prayer, and found Eucharistic Prayer No. 3 deficient in some of these elements. Then in November the National Executive Council authorized that the prayer be circulated for comment "along with the statements from the House of Bishops and the members of the National Executive Council, and comments from the Doctrine and Worship Committee."
STATEMENT FROM THE HOUSE OF BISHOPS
That this House responds to N.E.C. with the following statement:
We welcomed the biblical insights built into "Eucharist Prayer 3," with its rich imagery drawn from the servant theme and its strong emphasis on the enabling of the communicants to identify with Our Lord's service to humanity, but we cannot accept it as an adequate eucharistic prayer because we believe that such a prayer should clearly proclaim the saving acts of Our Lord, his resurrection, ascension, and coming again, and our atonement.
Some of the elements we would expect to see in any eucharistic prayer are:
1. A proclamation of Christ's death, resurrection, ascension and coming in glory
2. The words of institution in Our Lord's own words
3. An adequate epiclesis for the calling of the Holy Spirit on ourselves and the gifts that we may be nourished by the body and blood of the Lord and made one body and one spirit with Him
4. An indication of our mission in the world
5. An expression of our union with the whole Church in the communion of saints
6. Prayer for the unity of the Church and the coming of the Kingdom among men
7. A recognition that our hymn of praise is with the angels, archangels and all the company of heaven.
EUCHARISTIC PRAYER III
Celebrant: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.
Celebrant: Lift up your hearts.
People: We lift them to the Lord.
Celebrant: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
People: It is right to give our thanks and praise.
Celebrant: We give thanks to you, Lord our God.
for the gifts of creation and life.
You divided the light from the darkness
and the water from the dry land:
You made us in the image of yourself
and breathed into us the breath of life.
We give thanks to you, Lord,
because you look on us with mercy:
Again and again you meet us with the hope of new life.
You delivered us from slavery
through the waters of the Red Sea,
and called us to the righteousness at Sinai;
You called us to justice
in the words of you servants the prophets,
and showed us holiness in the lives of your saints.
We give you thanks for your servant, Jesus the Christ;
he is your new promise to us
and our new hope in you.
He took upon himself our bondage,
and carried the sorrows of our pilgrimage;
though he had done no wrong,
and became the model and pioneer of your kingdom,
in whom your will is done.
On the night he was delivered up to death
he took bread into his hands;
he gave you thanks; he broke the bread;
he gave it to his friends, and said.
'Take and eat:
This is my body which will be given for you;
Do this in memory of me.'
After supper he took the cup;
He gave you thanks and said.
'This is my blood of the new
and everlasting covenant
which will be shed for you and for many
that sins may be forgiven.
Each time you drink from this cup,
do it in memory of me.'
And so, Father, with this bread and this cup,
which we offer to you,
we remember his death and celebrate his vindication.
For you have made him the light of the nations,
and the bearer of justice to the ends of the earth.
May your Spirit, which was in Jesus your servant.,
come upon us and upon these gifts.
Make us one with him in his self-giving,
that through us he may bind up the broken-hearted
and comfort the mourners,
open the eyes of the blind
and proclaim liberty to the captives,
Until justice flows like water
and righteousness like an unfailing stream,
and the city of God is among us.
Blessed are you, Father, our beginning and our end.
Through Jesus, the Lord, in the Holy Spirit,
we sing the hymn of your unending glory.
All: Holy, holy, holy Lord
God of power and might,
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.
The service continues with the Lord's Prayer on page 00.

"When the Council of Associated Parishes for Liturgy and Mission met in Sorrento, British Columbia, this spring [2002], we worshipped on Sunday with the parish of Scw'exmx near Merritt, BC. This First Nations community uses the following eucharistic prayer written for the community, blending English and their native language. .... The prayer is reprinted here with permission of Mike Watkins (priest in the congregation), who put it together. It is published here as an example of the way in which one congregation is finding its voice in liturgical prayer".

Notes
"With virtually no dissent except from a handful of Essentials Coalition delegates, and after only a few hours `debate', General Synod has approved three new Consecration Prayers, two of which refuse to address Almighty God as Father." "These prayers were written to satisfy 'interests' in the Church and herald the final breakdown of Common Prayer, which was probably inevitable in any event, because of the availability of such a variety of liturgical resources on the Internet, from which priests can draw up 'mix and match' liturgies. The Church has now formally accepted the 'lobby group', the demands of sectional interests which have already played havoc with our national political life".
