Memory is a major factor in the composition and practice of
liturgy. Recent research into how the brain and memory function
points the way to how liturgy can best meet the needs of
worshippers. In Memory and Liturgy, Peter Atkins draws on the
fruits of his research into the process of the brain and our memory
and applies it to liturgical worship. His extensive experience in
writing and using liturgy keeps this book rooted in reality. In its
ten chapters the author applies the functioning of the brain and
the memory to our remembrance of God in worship; God's memory of us
through Baptism; our remembrance of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist;
the corporate memory of the community created through worship; the
healing of memories of sin and pain through forgiveness; three aids
to help us worship; the process of continuity and change in
liturgy; and the connection between memory, imagination and hope.
The conclusion summarizes the main practical issues. This provides
a check-list for those serving on Liturgical Commissions and those
involved in the teaching of the practice of liturgy. This book is a
positive contribution to the ongoing search for suitable liturgical
worship and music for the 21st century.
