But the Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.—Habakkuk 2:20
Each [temple] stands as a beacon to the world, an expression of our testimony that God, our Eternal Father, lives, that He desires to bless us and, indeed, to bless His sons and daughters of all generations. Each of our temples is an expression of our testimony that life beyond the grave is as real and as certain as is our life here on earth. I so testify.—Thomas S. Monson
