The Sacrament

A book Dustin made for Fiona for her 2nd birthday to help her learn the words and understand the meaning of the sacrament prayers.

The words in these prayers, recorded in Doctrine and Covenants 20:77 and 79, were given by revelation from the Lord Jesus Christ to the Prophet Joseph Smith in 1830. These words are also recorded in the Book of Mormon, an ancient record translated by Joseph Smith and accepted by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as “another testament of Jesus Christ” that goes hand-in-hand with the Holy Bible as a witness of Christ’s divinity and His role as Savior of the world.

Every Sunday these words are spoken in various languages around the world to bless the bread and water taken by Latter-day Saints in remembrance of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ and in renewal of the covenants they have made to follow Him.
