In an unprecedented moment in Church history, the entire First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles gathered together for the Rome Italy Temple dedication. For the occasion, the Church News asked the brethren to describe their bond of friendship with each other.
"Words are inadequate to describe the strength and the bond, the friendship, the reverence that we have among the members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles," said Elder Bednar in a Church News video. "It's the strongest bond of brotherhood that I think ... exists on the earth."
Elder Andersen added that their love for each other is united by the Apostles' sure knowledge of Jesus Christ.
"The beauty of it is that we have this shared knowledge and a sure witness of the Lord Jesus Christ, that He is the Savior of all the world. That brings us very, very close together and we love each other very, very much."
