"To me he was the epitome of the 'pure religion' described in the epistle of James: 'To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.' (James 1:27.)

"In these challenging times, dear brothers and sisters, the need to 'minister unto the least of these' of our Father's children is so great. (See Matt. 25:40.) How much we need the gifts of discernment and wisdom and charity to know how to really reach down and lift up our brothers and sisters to higher ground.

"I pray that day by day we will strive more diligently to be about our Father's business (see Luke 2:49), to love and to serve our fellowmen-to feed the hungry, and clothe the naked, and comfort those that mourn (see Matt. 25:37-39), to hold up the hands that hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees (see D&C 81:5)-to believe and live the Savior's doctrine; and to follow after Him and put first in our lives the things of His kingdom." - Richard P. Lindsay, "Ye Have Done It unto Me," Ensign, May 1990, p. 15
