During a recent trip to Italy, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor in the First Presidency, and his wife, Sister Harriet R. Uchtdorf, visited the Rome Italy Temple site on July 17.

 President Uchtdorf published a post on Facebook saying that Just a few days ago, Harriet and him visited the Rome Italy Temple site. They have enjoyed visiting this temple site as it is being constructed and eagerly look forward to its dedication. As European Saints, they feel a connection to this beautiful temple.

Harriet and I were both sealed to our families in the Swiss Temple as youth he said. In the 1950s, we European members saw the Swiss Temple as our spiritual powerhouse. We remained in our own countries and sought to build the kingdom of God in Europe. Harriet and I were later married in the Swiss Temple, as were our children, he added.

How wonderful it is that various temples dot Europe now, with two more in Paris and Rome coming soon. When I think of temples across the earth, I remember that temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are places where the Lord may come. They are the most holy of any places of worship on the earth. Only our homes can compare with temples in sacredness, he concluded.
