President Of The Mormon Church Dies

View 5 Items

That said, after a notable person's death, it's important not to sugarcoat their legacy by ignoring the terrible things they did.

Thomas S. Monson was 90 years old. Under Monson's aegis, the Church's threefold mission - proclaim the gospel, flawless the saints, and redeem the dead - was bolstered by a fourth, "outreach to the poor and less fortunate", Stuart Reid, a former state legislator, told The Salt Lake Tribune.

Senator Jim Risch said, "President Monson was one of a kind; he had a true passion for serving others and helped so many people throughout his life". With news of his passing this morning, an old video surfaced on social media showing him attending a game back in 2008 where he patted head coach Jerry Sloan on the shoulder and presumably offered some words of encouragement.

Although the call to serve as bishop of the Sixth-Seventh Ward only lasted a few years, his dedication to "his widows" has gone far beyond his assigned stewardship. Herbert writes that Monson's "influence for good will be felt for years to come". Oftentimes those visits were made to hospital beds on the snowiest of nights or holidays.

"I don't foresee any radical changes, any revolutionary changes, but there could be differences in emphasis", Professor Cannon said. "He was a great leader, a kind man who spent more than half a century in service to others through his responsibilities in the Church". In October 2012, President Monson lowered the age requirements for missionaries, allowing young men at age 18 and young women at age 19 to begin church service missions worldwide. He cared for all people as children of God.

Monson was also known for popularizing the phrase "to the rescue" in the church.

The former US presidential candidate is a practicing Mormon.

Three takeaways from Georgia's Rose Bowl overtime win
Riley stuck to his guns a bit too much with the game on the line as Mayfield threw just three passes for 13 yards in overtime. Just a few plays into the second quarter, Mayfield gave the ball to Rodney Anderson , who ran for 41 yards to the end zone.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, President of Universal Society of Hinduism, said that they were saddened by the passing of President Monson.

Though Prop 8 passed, it was eventually struck down as being unconstitutional, and that wasn't the end of Monson's anti-gay work.

"You develop an appreciation that Heavenly Father knows who you are". And, before I knew it, I found myself eating a cookie while standing face-to-face with him in a corner of the room.

He kept his arm around me during the rest of the conversation and then told us he needed to get to the funeral.

"He also served as president of the LDS Church's Canadian Mission, headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, from 1959 to 1962".

The Mormon church was founded in 1830 in upstate NY by Joseph Smith, who claimed he was visited by God and Jesus while praying in a grove of trees and was called to found the church.
