O Lord Jesus Christ

O Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, in giving us Your body and blood to eat and to drink, You lead us to remember and confess Your holy cross and passion, Your blessed death, Your rest in the tomb, Your resurrection from the dead, Your ascension into heaven, and Your coming for the final judgment.  So remember us in Your kingdom and teach us to pray:  Our Father... - DS I, II

Almost straight from the Byzantine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom where after the Verba, the Priest intones: Having remembered, therefore this saving commandment and all those things that have come to pass for us: the Cross, the Grave, the Third Day Resurrection, the Ascension into Heaven, the Sitting at the Right Hand and the Second and Glorious Coming and offering unto Thee Thine own of Thy own in behalf of all and for all.
