I believe one of the reasons the Lord told His disciples to "do this in remembrance of Me" is that He remembers it, with His perfect recollection, and He wants His people to have it fresh and refreshed in their minds. I doubt that it can be as fresh and real to us as it is to Him, so His command to do it repeatedly. "As often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you do show the Lord's death until He comes."
I am glad that the congregation where I am in fellowship observes the Lord's Supper every week. I know that some think it would get stale, but it hasn't done so for me, after 42 years.

I don't find it stale while doing it every week either. I know that the fear of it becoming a simple habit is often used to argue against having the Lord's Supper offered every week, but I've always felt that ritualization was fairly easy to overcome. Any time I have trouble connecting emotionally to what we're doing, I find that reading John 18-20 or Isaiah 53 solves that problem pretty quickly.
