President Joseph Fielding Smith
When Joseph Fielding Smith was made the President of the Church on January 23, 1970, how many handshakes away was he from the Prophet Joseph Smith?
B Lorenzo Snow
Lorenzo Snow, fifth president of the Church, led a life interlaced with miracles. His very countenance reflected his closeness to the Lord. One traveler, the Reverend Dr. Prentis of North Carolina, observed, “When I was introduced to Pres. Lorenzo Snow . . . I was startled to see the holiest face but one I had ever been privileged to look upon. His face was a poem of peace, his presence a benediction of peace. . . . The strangest feeling stole over me, that I stood on holy ground. . . . The picture of that slight, venerable form hallowed with the aura of an ineffable peace will haunt my heart like the vision of a celestial picture.”
