It's an exciting thing to finally arrive in Rome, Italy. Italy will be home for the next 18-24 months. Because some of the missionaries may never make it back to Rome until they have completed their missions, we always make it a point to let them see the Rome Temple Site.

President Howard W. Hunter said: "I invite the Latter-day Saints to look to the temple of the Lord as a great symbol of your membership. It is the deepest desire of my heart to have every member of the Church worthy to enter the temple. It would please the Lord if every adult member would be worthy of--and carry--a current temple recommend. The things that we must do and not do to be worthy of a temple recommend are the very things that will ensure we will be happy as individuals and as families." --Conference Report, October 1994
