The Latest News on Temple Reopenings

http://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/first-presidency-limited-reopening-temples

newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org Beginning January 4, 2021, the Apia Samoa and Brisbane Australia Temples will reopen in Phase 3.

Dale G. Renlund

A message by Elder Dale G Renlund on the opening of Temples.

Today I speak to you not as a former physician. I speak to you as an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. Like you, I am grateful for the news of the limited reopening of select temples for proxy work for our ancestors.

As we seek for opportunities to allow for more temple worship in safe and responsible ways, we also must keep in mind that as individuals, as families, and as a Church we will be judged by how we treat the vulnerable and disadvantaged in our societies. As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads around the world, it wreaks havoc among those who are already disadvantaged. Sadly, responses to the pandemic have been politicized and contentious. Our response need not be.

As we anticipate performing more proxy ordinances in the temples, we do for others what they cannot do for themselves. Without these blessings, these deceased individuals are profoundly disadvantaged.

The Savior taught that the second great commandment, after loving God, was “thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 22:39). As it relates to this pandemic, especially in temples, that means social distancing, wearing a mask, and not gathering in large groups. These steps demonstrate our love for others and provide us a measure of protection. Wearing a face covering is a sign of Christlike love for our brothers and sisters.

Please read the article below for additional details about this new phase of temple reopenings.

Vancouver Temple will be going to Phase 1 but there are others in the world that are progressing to phase 3

Our fundamental responsibility as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is to assist in the gathering of Israel by inviting all of God’s children on both sides of the veil to come unto their Savior, receive the blessings of the holy temple, have enduring joy, and qualify for eternal life.

The essence of the Lord’s work is changing, turning, and purifying hearts through gospel covenants and priesthood ordinances. As we become anxiously engaged in this sacred work, we are obeying the commandments to love and serve God and our neighbors. And such selfless service helps us truly to “Hear Him!” and come unto the Savior.

A global pandemic has changed many aspects of our world, and as a result, for many months our ability to attend the temple and participate in the sacred work performed in the house of the Lord has been limited. Returning to the temples is something we have prayed for and looked forward to with great anticipation. We rejoice in the opportunity to again serve and worship in holy temples, even if our experience will be different because of constraining circumstances and additional sacrifices we are asked to make.

For a while we may not be able to attend the temple as we did in the past—on a weekly or monthly basis. However, we will be blessed in remarkable ways as we honor and cherish the covenant relationship we have with our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ—and as we apply in our homes the principles we have learned and the patterns we have observed in the Lord’s holy house.

Please read the article below for additional details about this new phase of temple reopenings.

Russell M. Nelson

My friends, I am thrilled to be able to share the news that we will soon see the limited reopenings of selected temples for proxy work for our deceased ancestors. This will occur in areas where the incidence of COVID-19 is low and local public health guidelines for gathering and worship can be appropriately met.

The purpose of the Church is to bring the blessings of God to His children on both sides of the veil. Only in our temples do we receive the highest blessings that God has in store for His faithful children.

Even though temples have been closed, family history research has taken a huge leap forward; more names are being added.

As opportunities present themselves for temple attendance in coming months, I urge you to find a way to make an appointment with the Lord—to be in His holy house—then keep that appointment with exactness and joy. I promise you that the Lord will bring the miracles He knows you need as you make sacrifices to serve and worship in His temples.

I love the reflecting pond near the Salt Lake Temple. In this reflecting pool one can see the windows, the doors, the spires of the temple, and the inscribed words, “Holiness to the Lord.” Temples are holy; our churches and our homes can be holy places as well.

One of the reasons these places are holy is because they are dedicated. To dedicate means “to set apart … for a sacred purpose.” It is a verb—an action word. If temples, chapels, and homes are dedicated as holy places—if I want my life to be holy—then I must dedicate my life to that purpose. Even the most ordinary of tasks, done with intention, can help our efforts to be more holy. Holiness to the Lord—these words carved into this temple and every temple are words I want carved into my heart.

A Window Into Past, Present and Self: Salt Lake Temple Renovation Enters the Foundation-Strengthening Phase

Recently, a dear friend reached out with an invitation to participate in a temple endowment session for a young missionary. I, like so many of you, have missed attending the temple, and I was so grateful and happy to receive that kind invitation. We attended the Logan Utah Temple on a beautiful summer day.

I was overwhelmed by the immediate peace I felt entering the temple again after so many months. How I have missed it. It felt like coming home. I thought being there might temporarily satisfy my hunger for the work, but it actually intensified my desire to return to regular temple service where we “[feed] upon infinity” (William Wordsworth, “The Climbing of Snowdon,” from the 1805 Prelude, 70). It felt so wonderful. What a privilege and blessing it is to be able to assist in the great work that blesses both the living and those who have died. I’m sure we all feel the increased appreciation for temples since they have been closed.

This young missionary had already been enjoying his virtual missionary training center experience at home, and it was tender observing him and his dear family in the temple. I couldn’t help but think about the seeds that had been planted and nurtured in his life to prepare him for that special day. That is what I wish for all children as they prepare to make and keep sacred covenants.

I felt Heavenly Father’s love in His house. I thank Him for that gift. I felt His gracious welcome, his love and forgiveness, and the power of the priesthood of God through the covenants and ordinances of the temple. Even though we cannot yet attend the temple as often as we might like, we can still feel close to Heavenly Father and serve others for Him. We can still feel His love, forgiveness, and power as we humbly prepare to “hear Him” in general conference. I can hardly wait.

Although our access to the temple right now is limited, it doesn’t change the impact that the temple can have on us in our lives. Through our covenants and ordinances, we have access to the power of Godliness in our lives—no matter our circumstances. That power of Godliness comes because we've entered into a covenant that's been part of an ordinance. And as we keep that covenant, the power of Godliness can be in our lives.

Until our temples fully reopen, I pray that we can keep our covenants, and by doing so, access the power of Godliness in our everyday lives. When the day comes for us to attend the temple again, our hearts and our spirits will be hungry for the experiences of the temple. That desire, that hunger, will result in a powerful temple experience.

Watch as President Russell M. Nelson shares a message of comfort and caution as the Church looks forward amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I love you, dear brothers and sisters, and assure you that wonderful days are ahead.”

David A. Bednar

During this unique time when the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has claimed thousands of lives, crippled the world economy, and isolated world populations, operations have been suspended in the temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Despite the temporary closure of temples, we have a choice opportunity to invite the covenants and ordinances of the temple to pass through us.

The lessons learned in our previous temple experiences are not recalled only when we are in the temple. They are in our minds, and hopefully in our hearts. And we can have access to those learnings and those memories anytime.

While the prayers we offer in temples are powerful, we should recognize that the Lord is still aware of our circumstances and our situations at home. He will not give any less credence to an earnest, sincere prayer offered in a family room or kneeling at the side of a bed for this period of time. He will look on us with great mercy and compassion.

With the eternal perspective that the restored gospel provides and the grace that comes from the Savior’s Atonement, we can learn lessons from the adversity of mortality that prepare us for the blessings of eternity. We have to pray. We have to seek. We have to ask. We have to have eyes to see and ears to hear. But we can be blessed in remarkable ways to learn lessons that will bless us now and forever.
