“Divine mercy can best be applied by Him who knows these things that only He can know…The quiet moments of courage in the lives of His flock.  The un-noticed acts of Christian service, the unspoken thoughts which can be credited in no other way except through perfect judgment…The self assigned gatekeeper is Jesus Christ, who awaits us out of a deep divine desire to welcome us as much as to certify us…If we acknowledge Him now, He will lovingly and gladly admit us then.”  Neal A. Maxwell

“The hours that lay immediately ahead would change the meaning of all human history.  It would be the crowning moment of eternity.  The most miraculous of all the miracles.  It would be the supreme contribution to a plan designed from before the foundation of the world for the happiness of every man, woman, and child who would ever live in it.  The hour of atoning sacrifice had come.  Gods own Son, His only Begotten Son in the flesh, was about to become the Savior of the world.”   Jeffrey R. Holland

“Jesus is the Father’s gift to all men.  In offering His Son as He did, our Father in Heaven has shown us our truest example of pure love.  Out of His divine love came a willingness to endure the sacrifice of His Son.  The incomparable suffering in Gethsemane; the abuse by Jews and Romans; the mockery of a trial; the pain and horror of a crucifixion.  Why?  Because our Father in Heaven loves us and knew that we could return to Him only through the Atonement of Jesus.”   (Orange) New Testament Institute Manual, pg. 161, 1978
“Men and women who turn their lives over to God will discover that He can make a lot more out of our lives than they can.  He will deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls, raise up friends, and pour out peace.”
President Ezra Taft Benson
