Pope John Paul II and the Book of Mormon

Pope John Paul II

When Pope John Paul II was presented with a Book of Mormon, what did he say?

a.      “The Mormons will have a temple in Rome someday”

b.      “Hmmm . . . the Golden Bible”

c.       “If it’s not the Bible, I’m not interested”

d.      “Beautiful young prophet”

Yesterday’s answer:

a.      Brigham could not trust others that they washed their hands properly.

She [Clarissa Young Spencer] recalled that after a candy store opened on First South Street, her father [Brigham Young] would occasionally send her off to Brother Arbogast’s store with the words, “Tell him I want fifty cents worth of stick jaw but I want him to wash his hands before he breaks it.” (Brigham Young was always careful of sanitation, a reason Clarissa credits for his preference of having friends come to their home rather than his going to other places to eat.)
