The Very Rev. Dean Shreeve then presented his motion:
That Whereas, the Scottish Branch of the Church has long enjoyed the use of the Ancient Order of the Prayer of Oblation and the Invocation of the Holy Ghost in the Canon of Consecration of the Holy Communion;
And Whereas, the American Church has had the happiness of the authorized use, almost from the earliest moment of its national existence of the same beautiful and appropriate order;
And Whereas, the Mother Church in England is moving on the work of Revision, along the same lines of improvement of the Office;
And Whereas, it is highly desirable that in following the custom of the early Church, all might be brought into closer union with each other;
And Whereas, the Invocation of the Holy Spirit rightly emphasizes the all-important work of the Holy Ghost in this sacred mystery;
Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada does hereby restore the ancient heritage of the Church, by authorizing, for permissive use, the Prayer of Oblation, and the Invocation of the Holy Ghost in the Canon of Consecration, according to the arrangement in the American Book of Common Prayer.
That this resolution together with all other suggestions regarding Prayer Book Revision which may be made, be referred to the standing Committee on Prayer Book revision and be reported upon at such time as the Synod may decide upon further general revision of the Prayer Book.
On the vote being taken on the amendment of Principal Vance it was decided in the affirmative.
