Holy Communion is a Christian sacrament or ordinance. It is reenacted in accordance with Jesus' instruction at the Last Supper as recorded in several books of the New Testament that His followers do in remembrance of Him.
On the night of Jesus' arrest, He instituted the Lord's Supper. He took bread and broke it telling His disciples that it was His body broken for them. Then He took the wine and said it was his blood shed for the remission of sin. And then He commanded the disciples to do so in remember of Him until He returns. (Matthew 26:26-29)
