In Christian liturgies, a liturgical acclamation is a passage spoken aloud by a congregation of Christian worshippers.

The Second Vatican Council of the Catholic Church described acclamations as "shouts of joy which arise from the whole assembly as forceful and meaningful assents to God's Word and Action."[1]
