Memorialism is the belief held by many Christian denominations that the elements of bread and wine (or juice) in the Eucharist (more often referred to as The Lord's Supper by memorialists) are symbolic of the body and blood of Jesus, the feast being primarily a memorial meal. The theory comes largely from the work of Reformed theologian Huldrych Zwingli. The term comes from the verse that says "This do in memory of me" and the attendant interpretation that the Lord's Supper's chief purpose is to help the participant remember Jesus. We as Christians are to remember his death, burial, suffering and ressurection. One writer put it like this: We as Christian should remember Jesus as the trust of your hearts, As the object of your gratitude. As the Lord of your conduct. As the joy of your lives. As the representative of your persons, As the Rewarder of your hopes. Remember what he was, what he is, and what he will be. It's not just a practice for the Christians...it is a command as a personal memorial of our Lord's request. The Eucharist or Communion or The Lords Supper, is the rite that Christians perform in fulfillment of Jesus instruction, recorded in the New Testament,[1] to do in memory of him what he did at his Last Supper. ...
