This book explores the possibility of looking at the Christian spiritual life as a journey in which the way one remembers is gradually transformed, culminating in a union of memories with Gods memory. It does so partly in response to the need to remember correctly, both as individuals and as a society, both joyful events worthy of celebration, and atrocities that require lamentation and repentance. The book suggests that mapping such an anamnestic mysticism draws on key themes on memory from the pre-modern tradition, provides a helpful perspective on the Ignatian ideal of contemplation in action, and, finally, can help us remember Christian martyrs such as Oscar Romero.
