Before his day it was called the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God.—Doctrine and Covenants 107:3
Priesthood is the greatest power on earth. Worlds were created by and through the priesthood. To safeguard this sacred power, all priesthood holders act under the direction of those who hold the keys of the priesthood. These keys bring order into our lives and into the organization of the Church.—James E. Faust
