“It is expedient that the church meet together often to partake of bread and wine in the remembrance of the Lord Jesus.” —Doctrine & Covenants 20:75
“Remember: His premortal life, when this beautiful planet was made by Him; His humble birth in a manger; when He instituted the sacrament; when He was humiliated, buffeted, spat upon, smitten, and scourged with a whip that tore His flesh; His Resurrection, which ensures our own resurrection and the possibility to live beside Him for all eternity, depending on our choices.” —Claudio R.M. Costa
