“For all things must be done in order, and by common consent in the church, by the prayer of faith.” —Doctrine & Covenants 28:13
“As each of our beloved prophets has passed on, it is only natural to feel a sense of sorrow and loss. But our sadness is tempered by the joy and hope that come as we experience one of the great blessings of the Restoration: the calling and sustaining of a living prophet on the earth.” —Gary E. Stevenson
