“In all these duties…be with and strengthen them.” —Doctrine & Covenants 20:52-53
“Brothers and sisters, we have a heaven-sent opportunity as an entire Church to demonstrate “pure religion”—“to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light” and to “comfort those that stand in need of comfort,” to minister to the widows and the fatherless, the married and the single, the strong and the distraught, the downtrodden and the robust, the happy and the sad—in short, all of us, every one of us, because we all need to feel the warm hand of friendship and hear the firm declaration of faith.” —Jeffrey R. Holland
