“I see the angel Moroni, standing atop the temple http://facebook.com/163927770338391, as a shining symbol of [our] faith. I love Moroni, because in a degenerate society, he remained pure and true. He is my hero. He stood alone. I feel somehow he stands atop the temple today, beckoning us to stand above the worldly clamor, to have courage, to remember who we are and to be worthy to enter the ‘the mountain of the Lord’—the holy temple.” –Elaine S.

Angel Moroni - Bern Temple, Switzerland. Holds nothing but a trumpet. Upon the highest spire of the majority of the LDS Temples of the world, an angel stands with a trumpet in hand declaring the everlasting gospel, that it has been restored. It is a message to very nation, kindred, tongue and people. Each Moroni symbolizes the angel of the Restoration as seen in vision by John the Revelator.
“The angel Moroni stand[s] atop the temple as a shining symbol of [our] faith. In a degenerate society, he remained pure and true. He is my hero. He stood alone. He stands today, beckoning us to have courage, to remember who we are, to ‘arise and shine forth,’ to [live] above the worldly clamor and to, as Isaiah prophesied, ‘Come to the mountain of the Lord’—the holy temple.” –Elaine S. Dalton
