Is there a specific Memorial Acclamation that we should be following?

As far as I know there are three of them

  1. We proclaim your Death, O Lord,
    and profess your Resurrection,
    until you come again.

2)When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup,
we proclaim your Death, O Lord,
until you come again.

  1. Save us, Saviour of the world,
    for by your Cross and Resurrection
    you have set us free.

Sunday will be the first Sunday of Advent and I was wondering if there is a particular one that we should be using during Advent or any other times on the liturgical calendar such as Lent, Easter, Christmas, ect.

There are no official guidelines on when to select each of the Memorial Acclamations. They can all be equally used at any point in the liturgical seasons.

Obviously on some feasts the wording of one of the options might be more pertinent. For example, “When we eat this bread and drink this cup…” would probably be more appropriate than the others on Corpus Christi.
