In a recent Insight Into Liturgy concerning the Liturgical Movement a comparison was made between the eucharistic prayers found in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer and one written nearly two thousand years ago by Hippolytus of Rome, and their similarities were emphasized. One component of those rites or prayers is that of Anamnesis and Oblation. The Anamnesis is that part of the liturgy wherein the saving acts of our Lord, Jesus Christ, are recalled; and is defined from the ancient Greek as “reminiscence” and “memorial sacrifice”. These saving acts, to quote from eucharist prayer Rite I, are “his blessed passion, and precious death, his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension”. Like the eucharistic prayer Rite II and its several versions, it follows the Prayer of Consecration. Oblation, as defined in the Book of Common Prayer, is “an offering of ourselves, our lives and labors, in union with Christ, for the purposes of God”; and is based in Christ’s one offering of himself for our salvation. It is the celebrant, of course, who expresses these yearnings on our behalf. In this “season of stewardship” it is worth noting that Oblation has both a broad as well as a narrow meaning.
