HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
"We should expect that the adversary will try to interfere with us as…we seek to participate in this sacred and inspired work. The interference can vary from the terrible persecutions of the earlier days to apathy toward the work. The latter is perhaps the most dangerous and debilitating."
—Boyd K. Packer
