Elder Richard G. Scott, Quorum of the Twelve

A summary of the talk given by Elder Richard G. Scott, Quorum of the Twelve, during the Saturday afternoon session.

When we keep the temple covenants we have made and when we live righteously in order to maintain the blessings promised by those ordinances, then come what may, we have no reason to worry or feel despondent.

"I strive to participate in all the different ordinances in the temple.

"I encourage you to establish your own goal of how frequently you will avail yourself of the ordinances offered in our operating temples. What is there that is more important than attending and participating in the ordinances of the temple?"

I now share some additional suggestions on how to gain more benefit from temple attendance:

Schedule regular visits to the temple; leave sufficient time to be unhurried within the temple walls; remove your watch as you enter a temple; listen carefully to the presentation of each element of the ordinance with an open mind and heart; be mindful of the individual for whom your are performing the vicarious ordinance. At times pray that he or she will recognize the vital importance of the ordinances and be worthy or prepare to benefit from them; and prayerfully express gratitude for temple blessings.
