With these words, an Apostle of Jesus Christ describes the awful – and triumphant – last moments in the mortal life of the Savior of mankind.  This is a fitting message, to be absorbed in a reverent moment this Easter weekend.

From None Were With Him, an address by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve, at the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 5 April 2009.  The talk can be read in its entirety here, and listened to via an MP3 audio stream here.
