(Solved) What Does Hosanna In The Highest Mean Catholic?

The word hosanna comes from a Hebrew word meaning “save now” or “save us, we pray.” The first word of Psalm 118:25 is howosiah-na, translated “Save us!” and the crowd’s use of this word at the triumphal entry was significant—especially as they waved palm branches (Psalm 118 was associated with the Feast of Tabernacles). By saying “hosanna” as Jesus passed through the gates of Jerusalem and referring to David and David’s kingdom, the Jews were acknowledging Jesus as their Messiah. The’s having Jews had been waiting a long time for the fulfillment of the Davidic Covenant (2 Samuel 7; 1 Chronicles 17:11–14; 2 Chronicles 6:16), and their shouts of “hosanna in the highest” indicated the hope that their Messiah had finally come to set up God’s kingdom then and there (see Luke 19:11) 😎 [1]

Catholic.com Continues to explain that St. Jerome is the most common opinion that this word comes from Psalms cxviii (cxviii), and 25. This psalm, ” Confitemini Domino quoniam bonus,” was recited by one of the priests every day during the procession round the altar, during the Feast of Tabernacles, when the people were commanded to “rejoice before the Lord” (Lev. 23:40. The seventh day was the last. When the priest reached verses 25–26, the trumpet sounded, all the people, including boys, waved their branches of palms, myrtles, willows, etc., and shouted with the priest the words: O Domine, salvum (me) fac; o Domine, bene prosperare. Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini! The Hebrew for salvum fac or serva nunc was hoshi’a na. This was repeated so frequently that it’s having become abbreviated into “hosanna.” [5]
Jimmyakin.com also mentions that today at Mass we say, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.” This prayer is called the Sanctus, because that is its first word in Latin and it is called the Trisagion (a Greek name for the three “holy”s it starts with). The first line is the hymn of the seraphim in Isaiah 6:3 and Revelation 4:8. The second part is what the crowd cried to Jesus at his triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Matt. 21:9), which is modeled after Psalm 118:25. Thus the joyful Messianic exhortation, “O, save!” has come down to the liturgy of today. [6]
As reported by the researchers at newadvent.org, “And the multitudes that went before and that followed, cried, saying: Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest” (Matthew 21:9; cf. Matthew 21:15, Mark 11:9-10, John 12:13). Thayer’s contention in Hastings’ “Dict of the Bible” that the word hosanna was derived from Psalm lxxxvi, 2, does not seem to have much to support it. The general opinion is that of St. Jerome, that the word originated from two Hebrew words of Psalm cxvii (cxviii), 25. This psalm, “Confitemini Domino quoniam bonus”, was recited by one of the priests every day during the procession round the altar, during the Feast of Tabernacles, when the people were commanded to “rejoice before the Lord” (Leviticus 23:40); and on the seventh day it was recited each time during the seven processions. When the priest reached verses 25-26, the trumpet sounded, all the people, including boys, waved their branches of palms, myrtles, willows, etc., and shouted with the priest the words: “O Domine, salvum (me) fac; o Domine, bene prosperare. Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini!” Hebrew is the Hebrew word for “salvum fac” or “serva nunc”. This pattern was used so many times that it’s becoming shortened to hosanna. Day of the feast was called The Great Hosanna and the palm-branches from willow, myrtles etc. Were given the names hosannas. Willie Cook, Bahawalpur (Pakistan), revised this text on March 21, 2021.
