Administer Priesthood Ordinances
Read Doctrine and Covenants 38:42. The command “Be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord” has special meaning as you fulfill your duty to prepare the sacrament. Anciently a group of priests carried vessels—bowls or basins—to be used in the temple (see Ezra 1:5–11). Today you handle vessels that contain the sacramental bread and water in remembrance of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
Read Matthew 26:26–28. In the space below, write your answers to these questions:
What can you do to prepare the sacrament in a reverent and dignified manner (even though most people will not see you perform this duty)?
How can you set a good example for the deacons when you are asked to pass the sacrament?
