“Luz de las Naciones” (“Light of the Nations”) is available for on-demand viewing in the following places and languages:

More than 13,000 attended the annual event in the Conference Center on Nov. 5, 2022, which marked a return to in-person performance after two years of virtual programs in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The production featured more than 500 musical artists representing a variety of Latin American countries. They celebrated unity through music and dance.

President Dallin H. Oaks, first counselor in the First Presidency, attended the program in the Conference Center with his wife, Sister Kristen Oaks, as well as other leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles delivered a message of unity in connection with this year’s theme, “Juntos es Mejor” (“Better Together).”

“I hope that you are enjoying this occasion and that you can feel how the unity of thought, culture, emotion and faith are important elements of our unity with God and his Son Jesus Christ,” Elder Soares said in Spanish. “Through the Savior’s Atonement, we can live in unity and enjoy peace in this life and prepare to live with the Father and His Son forever. I believe that each of us can foster that norm of unity among our friends, our family, our community and especially those who are different from us.”
