Sacrament

“Our promise to always remember the Savior gives us strength to stand for truth and righteousness—whether we are in a large crowd or in our solitary places, where no one knows our actions except for God. When we remember Him and His name we bear, we have no place for self-degrading comparisons or overbearing judgments.” (Lisa L. Harkness, Primary General Presidency, “Honoring His Name,” General Conference, October 2019)

“Partaking of the sacrament each week breathes hope into the divinity within us, and we remember our Savior, Jesus Christ.” (Rosemary M. Wixom, Primary General President, “Discovering the Divinity Within,” General Conference, October 2015)

“As we partake of the sacrament, we witness to God that we will remember His Son always, not just during the brief sacrament ordinance. This means that we will constantly look to the Savior’s example and teachings to guide our thoughts, our choices, and our acts.” (Cheryl A. Esplin, Primary General Presidency, “The Sacrament—A Renewal for the Soul,” General Conference, October 2014)

“The sacrament gives us an opportunity for introspection and an opportunity to turn our heart and will to God.” (Cheryl A. Esplin, Primary General Presidency, “The Sacrament—A Renewal for the Soul,” General Conference, October 2014)

“The sacrament provides a time for a truly spiritual experience as we reflect upon the Savior’s redeeming and enabling power through His Atonement.” (Cheryl A. Esplin, Primary General Presidency, “The Sacrament—A Renewal for the Soul,” General Conference, October 2014)

“Aaronic Priesthood holders represent the Savior when they prepare, bless, and pass the sacrament. As a priesthood holder extends his arm to offer us the sacred emblems, it is as if the Savior Himself were extending His arm of mercy, inviting each one of us to partake of the precious gifts of love made available through His atoning sacrifice–gifts of repentance, forgiveness, comfort, and hope.” (Cheryl A. Esplin, Primary General Presidency, “The Sacrament—A Renewal for the Soul,” General Conference, October 2014)
