What Does “do This in Remembrance of Me” Mean?

In Christianity, “Do this in remembrance of me” is a statement Jesus Christ made to his disciplines during the “Lord’s Supper.” Jesus broke bread and shared wine with his disciples and asked them to do the same after his death.

In 2014, Christians follow the tradition of celebrating the Lord’s directives through a ritual known as “Communion.” In a typical church service, bread or small crackers and small thimbles of wine or juice are passed around during Communion. The celebration of the Lord’s Supper is presented in the books Corinthians and Romans in the Holy Bible. Some worship leaders say, “Do this in remembrance of me” at the onset of Communion.
