Peter's Basilica at night. At this time, members were strengthened and encouraged by the visits of two Church Presidents, Harold B.

The number of stakes has increased significantly only in the last ten years, with part of the growth being due to the influx of Latter-day Saint immigrants, especially from South America. The exhibit included several portraits never shared publicly before now. But emigration on the trails continued into the 20th century.

I felt how much my own faith and commitment were owed to my parents and leaders, and recognized that Italian Latter-day Saints were brothers and sisters with whom I shared a unique connection. No doubt, few who knew me then would have expected that years later I would end up studying for a year at a Vatican university, begin to interact and cooperate with Catholic priests and bishops, and become the go-to person for some of my colleagues at BYU on questions about Catholicism.
