HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
"In the temple we face the sunlight of truth. The light of the temple, that understanding, shines upon us as does the light of the sun. And the shadows of sin and ignorance and error, of disappointment and failure, fall behind us. Nowhere quite equals the temple."
—Boyd K. Packer
