Two Apostles Lead a Virtual Tour of the Rome Italy Temple

A new video tour of the Rome Italy Temple from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints features an introduction by President Russell M. Nelson and a tour led by two apostles, Elder David A. Bednar and Elder Ronald A. Rasband. They show and discuss the Rome Temple’s various rooms and areas, which mirror what is found in all Latter-day Saint temples around the world. These include the baptistry, instruction rooms, the bride’s room, marriage sealing rooms and the celestial room.

The unprecedented video production within one of the Church’s most sacred spaces was completed during the temple’s public open house in January.

The Rome Italy temple will serve over 23,000 Church members living in Italy and in neighboring countries. Currently there are more than 160 operating temples worldwide, including 12 in Europe.

“In our holy temples, available are the most sacred and important sacrament or ordinances that we receive as members of our Church,” taught Elder Bednar. “And those ordinances bring peace. They bring purpose. They’re a source of remarkable joy.”

The Latter-day Saint apostle continued: “All temples are significant because a temple is a point of intersection between the earth and heaven. A temple is the house of the Lord. It’s His house where we learn about Him, and we worship Him.”

Latter-day Saint temples differ from churches where members meet for Sunday worship services. Temples are considered “houses of the Lord” where the teachings of Jesus Christ are reaffirmed through marriage, baptism and other ceremonies that unite families for eternity.
