Abstract

ABSTRACT:

This article examines the Judeo-Christian concept of anamnesis from its foundation in the Jewish psalms to its further manifestation in the Christian liturgy. As the Old Testament prepares for and declares the coming of Christ and the redemption of man, the use of the psalms in the Church’s sacred liturgy provides the faithful an invaluable means to enter more deeply into the reality of Christ’s presence in the Eucharist. The article will pay close attention to the role that the psalms play in the antiphons at Mass as an aid to this anamnetic recollection of the marvelous works of God in the past and the faithful’s participation in the divine action of Christ manifested on the altar.
