Focusing on the concept of anamnesis (remembrance or memorial), this book highlights a language of connection between the integration of historical, sacramental and ecclesial embodiments of Christ. It explores the source event of the Church's life and the transformative encounter with Christ in the Eucharist, the effects of which are seen in social/ethical/political action and the Church's mission.
