The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints builds temples all around the world where faithful members go to learn more of Jesus Christ and his plan, receive ordinances for themselves, and perform vicarious work for their deceased ancestors. These temples are beautifully constructed both inside and out. They are designed to direct our thoughts heavenward and seal families together for eternity. The redemptive work that is performed here is not to be found anywhere else on the earth. All people are invited to experience for themselves the grandeur and blessings of temple work by qualifying themselves to enter the House of the Lord. In the meantime, I'll be taking you through the A to Z of our temples.
QUETZALTENANGO GUATEMALA TEMPLE
|The all-white Quetzaltenango Guatemala Temple|
|A feature of Sealing Rooms in temples are the eternity mirrors - two mirrors placed on opposite walls where you can see yourselves reflecting endlessly|
The temple is a place of peace, tranquility and quiet contemplation. As such, patrons are asked to maintain the reverence of the place by refraining from loud conversation and laughter. If it is necessary to speak, doing so in a discreet whisper is preferred. The beauty of the interior and atmosphere naturally persuades patrons to such reverence, similar to when you step foot into any religion's sacred temple, mosque or church.
"More holiness give me,
More strivings within,
More patience in suff'ring,
More sorrow for sin,
More faith in my Savior,
More sense of his care,
More joy in his service,
More purpose in prayer."
(From Church Hymns, #131)
